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

Some religious idiocy, published at a Muncie, Indiana news website.

Defending God

The airhead's defense of her fairy is not impressive.

Two examples:

"DNA consists of code, which requires a designer."

"The decisions we each make about God will determine our eternal futures."

No evidence. No logic. Just ridiculous wild claims.

She calls her fairy a designer. She says without explaining her reasoning "DNA was magically created out of nothing." She invokes our eternal futures, not caring she's only proving she's a gullible coward.

I feel sorry for any sane person who lives in Muncie.

    My hometown.

    But at least there will be "Good Without God" billboards down the road in Indianapolis soon. I can't wait for the fur to fly!

  2. Ms. Lady Atheist of Muncie, Indiana, I thought this post might get your attention.

    By the way right now it's 34 degrees in Muncie. Where I live in Margate Florida it's 73 degrees. However both locations are equally god-soaked. Or perhaps Florida is worse. We have never had any pro-reality billboards here and we probably never will.

  3. I replied: There is no human DNA without early hominid DNA and there is no early hominid DNA without early mammal DNA, etc etc etc The fossil evidence makes it pretty clear that DNA is the accretion of code through completely natural mechanisms, and the current DNA of many species has been well enough studied by now to validate those conclusions. No god necessary.

    The problem is, fairy tales are easy to understand and science is difficult. It also changes in light of new evidence, unlike fairy tales.

    Even if there were a God, and even if he really did directly inspire the Bible, it's pretty clear from the resistence of today's Christians that he made the right choice telling early Jews a pack of lies rather than the difficult truth.

    It's a shame that he didn't try, though. It would save a lot of you ninnies from having to stick your heads in the sand. Next time you go to the hospital and everyone is from some other country you have only yourself to blame. You're destroying America
