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

Science deniers, how do you explain Dorudon?

From page 51 of Why Evolution is True by Jerry Coyne:

"Finally, at 40 million years ago, we find the fossils Basilosaurus and Dorudon--clearly fully aquatic mammals, with short necks and blowholes atop the skull. They could not have spent any time on land, for their pelvis and hindlimbs were reduced (the fifty-foot Dorudon had legs only two feet long) and were unconnected to the rest of the skeleton."

Dorudon is a fossil of an ancestor of modern whales. It was 50 feet long so its two feet long legs couldn't support it (even if those legs were connected to the rest of the skeleton). What were those legs doing there?

The only logical answer is this fossil is a transitional species (also known as a missing link that is no longer missing) between land animals and modern whales. There is no other explanation that makes sense. The science deniers who believe every creature was magically created out of nothing could not explain why their fairy would wave its magic wand to create Dorudon.

If Christians (and their Muslim terrorist friends) were normal, they would, after reading this post, realize they have been wrong all their lives about evolution. Of course there's nothing normal about religious idiots. Instead of learning something from scientific evidence, they look for reasons to lie about it. If they're lazy they will go running to their favorite professional liar for Jeebus, and copy and paste their bullshit without bothering to understand it.

Prove me wrong Christian tards. Do something I'm certain you're not able to do. Grow up.
