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

A thirteen year old genius

I left the following comment at the post The Universe Does Not Care in the blog The Lessons of Evolution.

Thirteen years old and already a genius. Thanks for the priceless story. And thanks for reminding me how insignificant we human apes are, especially when compared to the species who would still dominate the earth if not for one rather large asteroid that 65 million years ago smashed into this planet instead of our solar system's vacuum cleaner, Jupiter.
