If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Even the most retarded evolution denier should be able to understand this undeniable evidence for evolution:

From an encyclopedia:

The term atavism (derived from the Latin atavus, a great-grandfather's grandfather; more generally, an ancestor) denotes the tendency to revert to ancestral type. An atavism is an evolutionary throwback, such as traits reappearing which had disappeared generations ago. Atavisms occur because genes for previously existing phenotypical features are often preserved in DNA, even though the genes are not expressed in some or most of the organisms possessing them.

Examples observed include:
hind legs on whales
hind fins on dolphins
hind legs on snakes
extra toes on horses, as in archaic horses
reemergence of sexual reproduction in Hieracium pilosella and Crotoniidae
Teeth in chickens
Humans with large canine teeth

This is from page 64 of the University of Chicago biology professor Jerry Coyne's book "Why Evolution is True":

We've already learned that some species of whales retain vestigal pelvises and rear leg bones, but about one whale in five hundred is actually born with a rear leg that protrudes outside the body wall. These limbs show all degrees of refinement, with many of them clearly containing the major leg bones of terrestrial animals--the femur, tibia, and fibula. Some even have feet and toes!

Creationists, there is only one possible explanation for this atavism. Some whales are born with legs because all whales evolved from land animals.

I said even the most retarded creationists should be able to understand this evidence. Was I correct, or are you creationist morons even more stupid than I thought possible?
