Christian creationist assholes "deny the immense foundation of evidence and slander all the human achievement that foundation represents."
From The Making of the Fittest: DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution by
Sean B. Carroll:
For all of those who do see the overwhelming evidence of natural selection and life's descent from ancestors, and the immense span of time over which the story of life unfolded, it is, to put it mildly, baffling how so many still do not. It is absolutely astonishing and often infuriating that some take it so far as to deny the immense foundation of evidence and to slander all the human achievement that foundation represents.
Try to imagine how retarded a person has to be to deny a basic scientific fact that has been an established truth for more than a century, and to replace that science with supernatural magic.
Only Christian assholes and Muslim terrorists are capable of so much burning stupidity.
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.
