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

Some more powerful evidence for human evolution that will make Jeebus cry.

metatarsal: any bone of the foot between the ankle and the toes

I already have a post about a recently announced discovery (a fossil of a metatarsal bone) that shows our ancestors could walk upright three million years ago.

I just found an excellent article about the same thing (Lucy's feet) at this blog.

"Lucy has a mixture of ape-like and human features because she is part of the way evolutionarily between our ape common ancestor and humans. Lucy is what all creationists dread and try desperately to deny, a transitional fossil."

"Paleontologists continue to pull more and more fossils out of the ground, each one a little validation of the fact of evolution while teaching us more about the small details of the course of evolution."
