Hitchslap, I LOVE it! :)

When I moved from theism to deism the logical part of my brain said that everything Richard Dawkins said in The God Delusion made sense and I should let go of it but for some reason my heart said "but it's true".

Christopher Hitchens gave me the final blow. He said something like "It's horrible, it's not true....and why would you want it to be?" I then realised that I simply wanted god to be true, realising this enabled me to let go of that feeling and become an atheist.

I owe a lot to Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Islam :)
