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

Worms are more useful than human apes.

On another blog a biologist wrote "Show me a worm, and I'll tell you how grand and majestic a creature it is." which reminded me how much I love worms so I wrote this:

I love worms. I bought a bunch of them for an organic vegetable garden I had when I lived in Chicago. Working in my garden at night I saw two worms making love. I gave them a nudge with my finger and they almost instantly disappeared under my black soil. I had no idea worms could move that fast. Thanks to those worms my tomato plants grew taller than I am (five feet 11 inches). I had to buy new longer stakes for my tomato plants because I underestimated the power of worms.
