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

Millions of American cowards deny reality. Why should anyone care?

What motivated me to create this blog is the existence of millions of evolution deniers in the country I live in.

The idea that every species alive today and every extinct species shares a common ancestor is the most interesting fact of science. What makes evolutionary biology fascinating is it explains virtually everything about nature in extreme detail. For example several recently discovered fossils of whale ancestors have given scientists a complete record of the transition from land animals to these mammals who live in the ocean. Another example is the DNA analysis that shows chimps are more closely related to people than to any other ape species. These exciting facts, shown to be absolutely correct thanks to overwhelming evidence, are completely denied by half of America's population. Their denial of reality is almost as interesting as the reality itself.

Why do millions of Americans deny the established truth of evolution? What can be done to convince them they are wrong? Is it possible to convince them? Probably not, but why? Is it because they're afraid? Are they too stupid to understand anything? Are they suffering from some strange mental illness? Is it because religious indoctrination has sucked out of them all the curiosity that people naturally have?

Perhaps a better question would be Who cares? Their ignorance of how nature works is their problem. Why not just ignore these drooling morons who live in a childish magical fantasy world?

The problem is it's difficult to ignore the countless assholes who are trying to dumb down science education because they don't like what's being taught.

That's what this blog is for. To fight back against these retards who want to destroy America's future.
