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

I don't much care for suck-ups.

"The assault is based on a big lie, which is that evolution denies divine creation. It does no such thing. It is silent on the issue."

Actually this is the one thing the science deniers get right. Of course natural processes are "silent on the issue". Natural processes don't talk. However it should be obvious to everyone, both religious and sane, the facts of evolutionary biology leaves the magic god fairy with virtually nothing to do unless superstitious people want to hide their god-of-the-gaps somewhere else.

It's pointless to deny the religious implications of evolution. Being dishonest is not going to fool anyone.

To the cowardly Christians who worry about the religious implications of science I say "That's your problem moron."
