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

Imagine living in a country where 86% of the population denies the most important basic fact of nature.

This is many times worse than disgraceful -- 86% of Americans deny this basic scientific fact: People developed from ancient apes and magic god fairies had nothing to do with it.

Imagine what it's like to live in a country where about 9 out of every 10 people don't even know what they are. We are apes, just animals, and nothing more than that, but the vast majority of Americans think we are something else -- special creations of a magic fairy, either by instant magical creation, or thanks to some kind of magical intervention in our development. According to these uneducated morons, the human race would not exist if not for their fairy's magic wand.

I live in this land of drooling morons, and it's strange, very strange. It's like living in an insane asylum where virtually everyone is mentally retarded.
