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

We are just apes.

There's nothing special about the modern human ape species. We are just one small twig on the vast evolutionary tree of life. Our brains are only equal to the brains of dolphins. We are inferior to other species in countless ways.

  1. Cats are cool. Why can't puss have a soul like us conceited humans? For the same reason we don't, there's no such thing. It's a construct that can't be proven or otherwise, which like the rest of the religious gobbledygook is about as useful as farting in a phonebooth, but boy, it makes the nonsense an easy sell. That is the most surprising thing about the whole fraud.
