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

A national disgrace: 84% of Americans invoke magic to explain the development of the human ape species.

This is perhaps the best evidence for the idea that religion makes stupid people even more retarded.

A 2010 Gallup Poll shows that only 16% of Americans accept this basic scientific fact: the modern human ape species developed from ancient apes and supernatural magic had nothing to do with it.

The other 84% of Americans are uneducated morons. These retards include the 40% of Americans who believe a fairy used a magic wand to create the human species out of nothing, the 38% who believe magic was a mechanism of human evolution, and 6% who don't know or don't care.

These results, as pathetic as they are, show a gradual improvement since 1982 when 91% of Americans were god-soaked idiots.

This disgraceful scientific illiteracy is one of many reasons why I have no respect for religious people and anyone else who thinks religions are harmless.
