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

Paula Kirby perfectly explains why the facts of evolutionary biology kill the idiotic Christian Death Cult.

Evolution poses a further threat to Christianity, though, a threat that goes to the very heart of Christian teaching. Evolution means that the creation accounts in the first two chapters of Genesis are wrong. That's not how humans came into being, nor the cattle, nor the creeping things, nor the beasts of the earth, nor the fowl of the air. Evolution could not have produced a single mother and father of all future humans, so there was no Adam and no Eve. No Adam and Eve: no fall. No fall: no need for redemption. No need for redemption: no need for a redeemer. No need for a redeemer: no need for the crucifixion or the resurrection, and no need to believe in that redeemer in order to gain eternal life. And not the slightest reason to believe in eternal life in the first place.

  1. Of course, "sophisticated theology" (which is only theology you haven't heard of yet, as per Pharyngulawiki) will tell you that, no, it's JUST a metaphor. For example, a metaphor of how we learned to overcome our animal natures and use willpower to organize ourselves. Like chimps, and bonobos, and orangs, and gorillas, and...fuck :/

    Well, no, it's a metaphor about how we have an "inner light" and need to get in contact with it, and if we don't we'll burn in a very literal Hell for all eternity--wait, shit, THAT doesn't work either.

    Actually, this is a bit of a corker :)
