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

The same wacko as the last post. He's as god-soaked as a subhuman can get. I could make better use of my time talking to a dog.

I left the following comment at Why I Feel that I don’t Need to Sit under Darwin.

"response I wrote to a theistic evolutionist who insisted that I had to be more acquainted with the arguments of the evolutionists before I could reject evolution"

Your theistic evolutionist is a fool. There is nothing theistic about evolutionary biology or any other branch of science. Scientists don't invoke supernatural magic for anything.

You shouldn't use the word "evolutionists". They are called "biologists". If they're not scientists they are called "normal people".

What biologists offer is not "arguments". What they have is called "evidence" and they have tons of it for evolution. Biologists correctly compare evolution deniers to flat-earthers. It's impossible to be scientifically literate and deny evolution.

If you don't mind making Jeebus cry, try reading "Why Evolution is True" by Jerry Coyne, a University of Chicago biology professor. If this easy to understand book doesn't convince you, then there is no hope for you.
