Professor, you have taught me not only to hate religion with a passion, but I feel the more important impact you have had on my life has been the more positive. Through your work, I have learned to passionately love science. In fact, I learned more about evolution from The God Delusion (the first of your books I read) than I had from years of "biology" classes. Throughout my life, I had never considered any person to be an inspiration to me. Well, rest assured that the first time i picked up The God Delusion, I saw myself reflected in its shiny cover. Here's to your great contribution to humanity's body of knowledge, and to centuries worth of knowledge built upon that.

In reason, and with love, Daniel.

Think of the odes that Professor Dawkins wouldn´t have been born (even his beloved father and mother,,,) and I can´t imagine ghosts of hiself greater than him. Congratulations !

Happy Birthday. I hope you understand that many lives have been made richer because you were born. That is the kind of legacy the best of us hope for.

Happy Birthday Richard! Let's hope for many, many more. I hope that you truly appreciate what a fantastic impact you've had, and are having, on people's lives - certainly mine, and many people I know. You're a great hero, an absolute inspiration, and our species is so much the richer for being able to count you among us.

Many happy returns and thanks for all the pearls of wisdom. Such a worthwhile life and contribution to reason and enlightenment. I'll stop before this descends into complete vomit inducing sycophancy.

Wishing you many, many happy returns of the day, Professor Dawkins. It was a great day for planet Earth when you arrived on the scene. A poem I wrote for Richard years ago:

A Scientist loves science

as flowers love a bee

spreading flower essence

as rafts upon a sea.

Hurrah for Richard Dawkins!

Volley, shout his name!

For jolly well he's taught us

and justly won his fame.

May his memes fly round us

with notions good as his

while genes combine to ground us

and goodness thank'ed is.

Happy Birthday Richard Dawkins! Hope you have a good one.

Did you know that you only need 23 people in a forum to post under a birthday thread before it becomes likely (over 50%) that any 2 of them share a birthday? There are two of them here definitely, and one of them is Richard I can tell you ;)

Yeah, asshole-mode over, it's my b-day too >.>

I share the same birthday.

Many happy returns, Richard. It's no exaggeration to say that in the past 10 years you have helped change the world, and made atheism a part of everyday discussion, and a force in politics. May the next 10 be as amazing, for all our sakes.

Attention, everyone! Richard Dawkins is 70! That's right: SEVEN-OH! Now let's all send him year's supply of chewing gum and pictures of people wearing backwards-pointing baseball caps!

In all seriousness...

Richard, I wish you the very best! Your writing is amazing and fascinating and you are making the world a better place. Happy birthday!
