Big Grin Introduction
Hi Seth and crew,

My name is Curtis Yates. I have been an Atheist now for about 4 years and always listen to your shows. I live in Australia so you can imagine how excited i am to hear the Unholy trinity toure is coming to Brisbane. I am even more excited now i have my ticket right here next to me.

I love your work and the work of your friends AronRa and Matt.

I believed in god because my family believed. My father turned to spirituality after a "near death" experience after a car accident. being young i followed suit. eventually i thought it was all a wrong when the same people would show up with the same issues every week to our house where dad would hold spiritual meetings. Then i had an argument with a family member over some pictures with "orbs" in them. I showed her the evidence that orbs were infact dust particles and not ghosts. she refused to see the truth of the situation.

so i asked, what else have i been wrong about? And i began to research.

Well i, like most, was blown away by the one and only Christopher Hitchens and then Dawkins, Harris and of course, you.

Your efforts have helped me in so many ways. From letters to a local newspaper debating religious contributors to knowing that i am not alone.

I know you must get this a lot but i certainly hope i get the chance to thank you in person for your work.

Regards

Curtis Yates

RE: Introduction
Welcome Curtis, you may want to send your intro in an email directly to Seth. He'll probably never see it here.

Enjoy!
I'm from Oz and didn't know about the Unholy Trinity tour.
Do you know David Nicholls?
