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

Our common ancestor lived about six million years ago.

Evolution deniers, look at this family and then try to tell me this species isn't a cousin of human apes. If you had any common sense you would call this photo powerful evidence for our evolutionary relationship with chimpanzee apes.

  1. I look at this picture and I see us.
    A mother and father with their baby. The father playing with the little feet thinking (i am sure) wow look at this little guy we made and I am his daddy.

    That is us.
    Evolution deniers not only don't have any sense; they have no empathy either.

  2. Mr. Brannan, I had the exact same reaction to this picture of a chimpanzee family. Substitute human apes for the chimpanzee apes and there would be nothing else to change. The photo shows how much chimpanzees are like humans and how much people are like chimpanzees. Which makes sense since they are our closest non-human cousins.
