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

If you're a victim of religious brainwashing and you want to cure your disease, you only need to understand one simple concept.

With only one seven-word sentence I can explain why every miracle ever imagined is bullshit, why every god ever invented is bullshit, and why all the gibberish in every holy book is bullshit.

There is no magic in the universe.

That's it. Wasn't that easy? It's not necessary to write an entire book to explain why bullshit is bullshit. The above sentence (in bold) should be enough to do the job. If the victims of religious indoctrination can understand every religious idea equals magic, and if those victims can understand magic isn't real, their disease is cured.

You've been trained to invoke magic (AKA god) for every unsolved scientific problem and for every unanswered question. It's pointless to do that because invoking magic is equivalent to invoking the Easter Bunny. It's not reality.

Scientists have already solved virtually every scientific problem. There might not yet be a scientific consensus about which ideas are correct but they have shown there's no reason to invoke magic for anything. There will forever be research opportunities in science but these points for future understanding are not places to hide a god of the gaps. It's just plain childish to invoke god (AKA magic) for anything. There's a natural reason for everything even if that reason will not be known for several centuries or forever.

For unanswered questions the rational person always says "Scientists are still working on it." Only lazy god-soaked morons say "The magic god fairy did it."

The two most important reasons I created this blog was to convince science-deniers to stop denying reality, and to convince victims of religious brainwashing to grow up, educate themselves, and face facts. For these goals I have published my collection of evidences for evolution, and I have written posts like this one to explain why god is bullshit.

I probably didn't convince anyone of anything, but if I did successfully help save only one person from a lifetime of stupidity it was worth all the hard work. If that one person exists, now or in the future, please leave a comment at any post to say hello. This blog will be here forever and I will continue to automatically get emails for every comment, so even if I stop wasting my time writing new posts, I will be here for a long time to find out whether or not it's all been for nothing.

  1. I have a similar, yet less harsh blog, and my mission is the equal of yours. All of my writing and hours and hours of research is well worth it, if only ONE person will open their eyes to the truth. If I save ONE, single human being from the clutches of organized religion, I'll be happy. Thank you brother!
