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

Biologists say people evolved from ancient apes. They have tons of evidence. Bible thumpers say people were magically created. They have no evidence.

Who to trust? Fortunately it's not necessary to trust anyone. Just study the evidence.

Oh wait, the Bible thumpers have no evidence for their god fairy's magic wand. They don't even know what magic words their fairy used.

Meanwhile, the evidence for evolution is massive, powerful, and growing more rapidly than ever.

I think it's fair to say evolution is fact and magic is bullshit.
