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

Another poll shows that Americans are idiots. What a surprise!

I wrote this comment at 41% of Americans think astrology is scientific.
33% disagree with the Earth going around the sun once a year.”

If I remember correctly, 20% of Americans think the earth circles the sun.

What is interesting to me are the biology deniers. They call themselves creationists because they invoke a creator with a magic wand to explain the diversity of life. Other science deniers invoke the same magic wand for the development of the modern human ape species. They think magic is one of the mechanisms of evolution. Only 16% of Americans accept evolution without magic which makes us about even with the Muslim Middle East. Our Christians have a lot in common with terrorists.
