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

Willfully ignorant Christians never learn anything because their science education is filtered by professional liars for Jeebus.

I left the following comment at an Amazon.com customer review of Why Evolution is True by Jerry Coyne.

You wrote "I was raised in a very conservative Christian environment and taught Young-Earth Creationism (anti-evolution, anti-Big Bang, etc.). I bought into it for a long time. In college, I finally began to investigate some of the claims for myself---reading what was _really_ being said by 'the other side', rather than what I was being told was being said."

You're a rare exception. Most brainwashed Christians continue living in their childish magical fantasy world their entire lives, never knowing what they are or where they came from. Unlike you, they get all their science information filtered by professional liars for Jeebus, and they never learn anything.

Try convincing a Christian creationist to read Jerry Coyne's masterpiece Why Evolution is True. They will use any excuse to not look at it. Christians are called willfully ignorant for a good reason. They go out of their way to know nothing about reality.

  1. I hope you didn't watch that "not overtly religious" service (according to some TV talking head) tonight. You might need resucitation!
