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

The Christian Creationist Discovery Institute and their "unyielding commitment to dishonesty and its creepy mission to undermine science itself."

I wrote these comments at The mere presence of this book is interrupting my Darwin worship:

"I know the outline of a few of his basic arguments, but I’m actually quite interested to see what he puts forward as positive evidence of design, especially since the book is supposed to be the epitome of the ID movement’s output so far."

Translation:

"I know the outline of a few of his basic FANTASIES, but I’m actually quite interested to see what he puts forward as positive evidence of MAGIC, especially since the book is supposed to be the epitome of the MAGIC movement’s output so far."

A summary of their "evidence": if the compulsive liars of the Christian Creationist Discovery Institute are too stupid to understand something then it was created out of nothing by a magic-wand-waving god fairy.

As if their dishonesty and total ignorance of science was evidence for anything except the idea these Liars-For-The-Christian-Death-Cult are traitors who want to destroy America's science education to defend their dead Jeebus.

The truth about the pathological liars of the Christian Creationist Discovery Institute: 23 posts I wrote about the dishonest creationists of the Christian Discovery Institute

Here's an example. This shows educated Christians have nothing but contempt for the Discovery Institute liars. This is from a letter to Stephen C. Meyer:

Your Discovery Institute is a horrific mistake, an epic intellectual tragedy that is degrading the minds of those who consume its products and bringing dishonor to you and to the church. It is for good reason that Casey Luskin is held in such extreme contempt by your movement's critics, and there's something truly sick about the pattern of attacks that your operatives launched in the weeks after the Biola event. It's clear that you have a cadre of attack dogs that do this work for you, and some of them seem unconstrained by standards of integrity. I can't state this strongly enough: the Discovery Institute is a dangerous cancer on the Christian intellect, both because of its unyielding commitment to dishonesty and because of its creepy mission to undermine science itself. I'd like to see you do better, but I have no such hope for your institute. It needs to be destroyed, and I will do what I can to bring that about.
