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

Idiot America actually has regular news websites that defend religious bullshit and attack science.

In Cleveland, Ohio a news website is actively spreading lies about basic scientific facts. They ask this question and then they give the worst possible answer.

Why is the teaching of creation so “surprisingly resilient” in schools when the theory of evolution is more widely promoted? If evolutionary biology was an indisputable fact, why would a number of biology teacher’s across the country insist on teaching Intelligent Design to their students?

The correct answer: A number of biology teachers across the country insist on teaching MAGIC to their students because they're uneducated morons who somehow got jobs teaching science in the high schools they should never have been allowed to graduate from. They are superstitious idiots, they don't know what science is, and they should be fired and publicly humiliated.

Instead of answering the question correctly this retard invokes one of the stupid assholes of the Christian Creationist Discovery Institute who says "I'm too stupid to understand cells therefore they were magically created by my Christian god fairy."

This anti-science religious bullshit is from a Cleveland, Ohio news website.

The authors say they uncover evidence that creationism is “surprisingly resilient” in many biology classrooms in America, and that science and the scientific method are being systematically undermined.

“We find that about 13 percent of public high school biology teachers are active advocates for creationism or Intelligent Design,” Plutzer tells Templeton Report, whose grant supported the book’s writing.

“They emphasize to their students that these are ‘valid scientific alternatives’ to mainstream evolutionary biology and devote at least some formal class instruction to the topic. An additional 5 percent of teachers take the same position, though typically in brief responses to student questions.”

Plutzer says he and Berkman find that “active proponents of creationism as science can be found in every state, even in fairly cosmopolitan school districts.”

Why is the teaching of creation so “surprisingly resilient” in schools when the theory of evolution is more widely promoted? If evolutionary biology was an indisputable fact, why would a number of biology teacher’s across the country insist on teaching Intelligent Design to their students?

Could it be because the evidence leans more toward creation than blind chance for all the life reproducing on this planet? If the theory of evolution was completely sound there should be no biochemists to argue against it.

Yet, Michael J. Behe, a professor of biochemistry at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, asserts that “Cells are simply too complex to have evolved randomly; intelligence was required to produce them.”
