Reinforced my non-faith. Fri, Dec 13 2013 #(2206)

Dec 13, 2013

I would just like to say that you have helped me tremendously in cementing my belief that the supernatural is non-existant. I thank you for that Mr. Dawkins. I live in Idaho in the U.S. and as you can imagine, am surrounded by the pious at all times. My ride to work is an evangelical and our debates are usually serene. Every so often though he will plague me with “examples” of irreducible complexity, creationism, etc. With your works as a sort of guide I am able to shut him up fairly quickly, with him resorting to the age old “You are deceived” argument. When that happens I know I have won the debate.

Your continued dedication to the advancement of science and reason fills me with joy. It truly is good to know that there are people out there that are combating the illogical and downright false. It is my sincere wish that more people will pick up your books and at the very least give them consideration. It may be a lot to hope for where I live though. If ever you find that you can visit Idaho to lecture or debate please do so! I would love to attend one of your functions but usually they are too far away for me to be able to go.

Again, thank you for all the help you have given the world, not to mention hope.

Jonathan Ring
