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

Darwin killed the heaven fantasy.

Charles Darwin is the father of modern biology, and he's the man who killed the magic god fairy fantasy. He also killed the cowardly heaven fantasy, because if our species developed thanks to the exact same natural processes that gave the world the cockroach, then we are virtually equal to cockroaches (we each developed to be good enough to live in our different environments). Even the most retarded Christian would never suggest there's a cockroach heaven, so there's no reason to pretend there's a magical paradise for human apes.

Fortunately there's no need for a magical paradise because there's a real paradise here on Earth. It's called south Florida. Please come visit us and bring lots of money.

Even without the religious implications of evolution, a magical heaven always was the most ridiculous idea ever invented. No other fantasy requires so much wishful thinking. No other fantasy requires so much waving of a magic wand. No other idea is more childish and idiotic. No other religious belief is more cowardly. And worst of all, the magical heaven myth makes terrorism possible. Without the magical heaven most Americans believe in, the 9/11 atrocities and the daily suicide bombings since then would have been impossible.

I've written about the heaven delusion several times before because it's extremely important to eradicate it. Without the cowardly idiots who believe in a magical heaven, there would be no more terrorism, and equally important the religion industry would go extinct. Preachers, priests, rabbis, clerics, and other professional assholes would have to get real jobs if their gullible customers ever grew up and stopped pretending there's another existence after a human ape drops dead.

Just imagine what a wonderful world this would be without religious insanity. It's possible but only if billions of idiots can be convinced it's in their best interest to grow up and face facts.

  1. My conversion to sanity began when I was about 7 years old, when someone told me the fairy tale about the tower of babel. Even my childish reasoning told me that building a "tower" to reach "heaven" would be a futile undertaking (after all, we were at that time flying jet aircraft at many times any altitude reachable by a "tower"), so why would some god-being be worried enough to create a whole bunch of new languages to thwart a project which was doomed to fail anyway? I guess he was just as ignorant as the men who created him.
