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

For some strange reason I continue to waste my time trying to explain reality to the brain-dead.

I wrote these comments at Natural Selection; Creationism vs. Evolution:

"Why shouldn't there be a God, why is evolution so right, why doesn't the Bible have anything to say?"

God is just another word for magic. Magic is a childish idea.

Evolution is right because massive powerful evidence shows beyond any doubt it's right. For example every single time molecular biologists compare DNA sequences of modern human apes and modern chimpanzee apes they can see with their own eyes the evolutionary relationship between these two ape species. People are still apes by the way, which is a basic fact of biology that can be found in any encyclopedia.

Christian science deniers invoke a "common magic man" instead of a common ancestor. The reality deniers don't know what they're talking about. The childish "common designer" idea can't explain ERVs and Human Chromosome Two. Christians spread lies about this evidence anyway but they aren't fooling the world's biologists.

Biologists keep saying "study the evidence, there's tons of it" while science deniers refuse to look at it because they don't want to make their dead Jeebus cry. All evolution deniers are willfully ignorant.

"Why doesn't the Bible have anything to say?"

The Bible has plenty to say about the god fairy's love for genocide but decent people are not interested.

It's 2001, not 1001. Join us here in the 21st century. Don't be afraid. Reality means there's no magical heaven but throwing out your childish fantasies will help you better appreciate the real heaven you live in right now. It's called "Earth" and thanks to billions of years of natural processes it's a paradise. Only greedy people would wish for something more.

There's tons of evidence for evolution and there's exactly zero evidences for a magical god.

There is no debate about evolution. Evolution is not an opinion. Reality is not a viewpoint. Reality is what it is. It's called evolution and it's how the world works. Pretending there's some debate about the foundation of biology (evolution) and the most important basic fact of science (evolution) is equivalent to saying there's a debate about whether or not the earth is flat, which by the way is why biologists call evolution deniers "flat-earthers".



  1. as a former professor of mine used to say (usually after faculty meetings!) "Sometimes losing battles are the only ones worth fighting."

    Just remember the lurkers. Some of them may change their minds, especially when they see their "team" has nothing to offer but idiocy and the occasional ancient quotation.

  2. If I ever do convince a lurker to accept reality I hope that person says hello or something.
