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

Jeebus was a science-denier therefore Christianity is an anti-science religion.

I wrote the following comments at what appears to be an anti-science Christian website:

"We believe that the theory of evolution is a foundational scientific truth"

They got that part right. Evolution is a basic scientific fact.

"We the undersigned, Christian clergy from many different traditions, believe that the timeless truths of the Bible and the discoveries of modern science may comfortably coexist."

How can they say there can be any truth in the Bible when they are admitting Genesis is a myth?

They admit magical creationism is wrong, so why do they worship the dead Jeebus who was a creationist?

These clergy say they accept the facts of evolutionary biology but virtually always they invoke their god's magic wand to invent, use, or guide evolution. That's not accepting evolution, it's polluting it.
