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

To all Christian assholes: Calling supernatural magic "DESIGN" does not make it any less childish.

I wrote the following comment at http://www.csmonitor.com/Commentary/Opinion/2011/0119/Creationists-have-gotten-clever-but-there-s-still-no-debate-over-evolution

Richard Jones wrote "There is a ton of evidence for creative design."

Translation:

"There is a ton of evidence for MAGIC."

Let's have your evidence for magic, Mr. Jones. You can start by producing your fairy's magic wand. Also, we need to know what magic words your fairy used. Did it say abracadabra or hocus pocus or what?

Why don't you grow up mister? Calling magic by another name doesn't make it any less childish.
