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

I found another pro-science pro-magic mormon blog. While there I tried to explain the concept called "reality".

Human Ape said...

You wrote "If this life is but an evolutionary training ground for returning to some heavenly home, then upon arrival we will indeed appreciate and understand, like Adam & Eve, that becoming like God requires knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 3:22)."

You also wrote you're "A Mormon and fan of Darwin."

Charles Darwin demonstrated that gods were not necessary to explain the diversity of life. If the god of the gaps can't hide there, what's the point of hiding it anywhere else?

I assume you believe in a god anyway. Also you probably believe in a "heavenly home" which by the way is an idea that makes terrorism possible.

You accept a basic scientific fact that makes supernatural ideas unnecessary but you still believe in the supernatural. It's not logical and it's not honest to do that.
