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

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Please click the cartoon to expand it.

This post is not about our Second Amendment to the United States Constitution (for the record I don't think weakening gun laws is a good idea). What's interesting to me in this cartoon is the trillion or more dollars of taxpayer money we have spent to defend ourselves from religious violence.

My point is religion is expensive. For everyone. Including me. And for some reason that bugs me.

In a world without religious stupidity, in a world without the cowardly idiotic childish belief in heaven that most Americans share with terrorists, the World Trade Center towers would still be standing, thousands of innocent people would still be alive, and that trillion dollars could have been used for something more important, for example giving it back to the taxpayers because it's their money.

I'm writing this just in case any Christian assholes visit and they wonder why I have so much contempt for their medieval superstitions and their breathtaking stupidity.
