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

More evidence for evolution -- the differences between Old World monkeys and New World monkeys.

This map of fossils is part of the evidence for when Africa and South America were one continent.

In the millions of years since Africa and South America split apart (to form the Atlantic Ocean which is still expanding) the monkeys on the original continent became separated and of course evolved differently. Differences include their tails, their noses, and their eyesight. Evolution explains why there are different monkey species in Africa and South America. As usual evolution by natural selection explains everything.

Or perhaps when the dead Jeebus waved his magic wand to create monkeys out of nothing he made it look like evolution is a bloody fact to test the faith of the world's scientists.

Or perhaps evolution deniers are fucking idiots.
