    He's Definately Got a Few Things Over Jesus

    The first and most important thing - Dawkins is a real person.  I dont have to believe in Dawkins he exists whether I like it or not.  Second, he's educated and trying to educate the rest of the world.  WOOHOO!  Three cheers for Dawkins!  Dawkins...

    It Makes A Lot More Sense

    Richard Dawkins Gave Me The Guts To Come Out Of The

    I was raised going to church. I went up the aisle when I was 5 in the Baptist church because my mother was pushing me. She wanted me "saved" before I knew any better, because ONE SECOND after you know you should ask Jesus to forgive all your sins and come into your heart, but you...

    Existence

    While I find philosophy, and even religions, interesting every now and again, science will always be my first love. That, and I know Richard Dawkins actually exists. Or at least exists as much as I exist. - K
