About a year ago or so I discovered creationisn.
At first I was stunned. How could anyone honestly
believe that? I became curious and I started researching.
I watched hundreds of YouTube videos, I read Dawkins,
downloaded talks by Sam Harris, followed discussions
on various sites, subscribed to the atheism
Today it all came together. It just made click.
And therefore a big thank you to you.
You introduced me to Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris,
Cristopher Hitchens and other intelligent and - dare
I say - wise authors.
You renewed my interest in science.
You showed me how ridiculous and even dangerous religion
is, and I have learned a lot about how bad fundamentalist
religion can get.
Because of you I now see how wonderful evolution
Because of you I have learned so much about reasoning
I wouldn't have read Dawkins, were it not for you.
I wouldn't have Einstein and Hawkins on my reading
list, had you not renewed my childhood fascition
for science. I wouldn't have found all those wonderful
videos about evolution, biology or astrophysics that
have expanded my common knowledge.
I wouldn't know what Occam's Razor was and how awful
the bible or the quran really is. Because of you
I found the evidence and the reasons I needed to
fully convince me.
You have killed every last trace of suspicion in
me, you have freed my mind completely from any trace
of superstition. I now know that there is nothing
supernatural. I mean, I really know. Not only rationally,
but I now understand it. You have freed my mind from
any last trace of catholicism.
You made a firm atheist out of me.
And therefore I thank you.
I would have been too lazy to learn without you..
