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

Charles Darwin's 202nd birthday is tomorrow February 12, 2011. In 1859 he was way ahead of his time.

Happy Birthday Charles Darwin, the father of modern biology and the man who assassinated the magic god fairy.

This New York Times article from August 6, 1860, more than 8 months after the publication of On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life, the British Association for the Advancement of Science didn't want to talk about it, except for a "Bishop of the English Church to denounce its heretical tendencies".

The title of Darwin's masterpiece reminds me of the Christian retards who are constantly lying to defend their dead Jeebus. They dishonestly accuse Darwin (who spoke out strongly against slavery when Christian assholes invoked the Bible to justify their ownership of black people) of being a racist, as if that would have had anything to do with the truth of his brilliant ideas. To justify their dishonesty they invoke the name of Darwin's 1859 book, showing that they never read the book because his use of the word races couldn't have been about human races since the book said virtually nothing about human evolution. That came many years later when Darwin thought people were ready for the truth of their evolutionary relationship with all other life. Darwin was not a racist. In any case, even if he was an axe murderer, even if he ate babies for breakfast like I do every morning, that would not change the established truth of evolution.

Many thanks to the British people for giving the world Charles Darwin and Richard Dawkins.

Darwin anticipated problems with his theory. Modern science has answered them. Evolution by Natural Selection has been triumphantly vindicated as fact.
-- Richard Dawkins
