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

Jerry Coyne criticizes atheist wimps who suck up to religious retards.

Evolution does not need any adjectives, especially not theistic. It is not OK to pollute biology with god bullshit. If Christians and Muslims are so cowardly they can't accept a basic scientific fact without sticking Jeebus or Allah into it, then they should stay out of science completely. I have more respect for the retarded Bible thumpers than I have for the Christian and Muslim assholes who want to make evolutionary biology part of their death cults.

This cut and paste job is from Jerry Coyne's blog.

It's excellent except I wonder why he bothered to mention the full-of-shit Berlinski of the Christian Creationist Discovery Institute.

Jerry Coyne writes about the cowardly Muslim assholes who throw acid into the eyes of little girls because they're walking to school. The atheist wimps who suck up to religion apparently don't care about these atrocities and that's why I have so much contempt for suck-ups.

I swear, sometimes I think that fellow atheists who want to foster the acceptance of evolution by making nice with religion are completely blinkered. Their goal is to get people to accept any kind of evolution—including that driven or guided by gods—even if it conflicts with the notion of non-theistic and materialistic evolution held by scientists. God made natural selection? That’s fine. God guided the process so that the evolution of god-worshiping humans was inevitable? That’s okay too. God inserted—as Catholic dogma asserts—a soul in the hominin lineage somewhere between Australopithecus and Homo? We’ll just keep quiet on that one.

And although those accommodationists are atheists, presumably aware of the the many destructive aspects of religion, you won’t hear them talking about that. Nor will you hear them admit the obvious fact that the main impediment to accepting evolution in this world is not scientific ignorance, but religion. Every anti-evolutionist I know, with the possible exception of David Berlinski, is motivated at bottom by faith. Instead, faitheists yammer on about how important it is that Americans accept evolution, because otherwise, you know, we’ll fall way behind India and China. (So what?, I ask. A rising tide lifts all boats.) They claim without proof that that evolution-acceptance will come only when atheists shut up about the incompatibility between science and religion, and when we get line with those accommodationists who osculate the rump of faith. They assert that religion will always be with us and it’s useless to fight it—despite the fact that faith has largely disappeared in Europe.

They worry far more about an Alabama schoolchild accepting evolution than about an Afghan girl defaced with acid for daring to attend school at all. For an atheist, that is a clear case of misplaced priorities, and it sickens me.
