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

In this video that compares artificial selection to natural selection, Carl Sagan gets to use his favorite word "billions", except ...

... except he's talking about the number of years natural selection has been working, instead of the number of stars in a galaxy.

Carl Sagan explains evolution.


  1. Excellent video! Thanks for posting it :-D

  2. LadyAtheist, thanks for watching it. I remember Carl Sagan's Cosmos TV series and his billions and billions of stars. Best science on TV ever, best music ever.
