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

Religion should have no place in a civilized society.

The New York Times article at Roving Defender of Evolution, and of Room for God is about a pro-science wimp who sucks up to religious stupidity. Most of the comments are bullshit about religious fantasies being compatible with reality. There's no shortage of fucking idiots in Idiot America.

I have extreme contempt for religious assholes (and wimpy atheists) who pretend a magic god fairy can be compatible with 21st century science. Science has repeatedly killed the idiotic god fantasy. The idea there's a supernatural creature with unlimited magical powers hiding somewhere in the universe is bullshit that must be eradicated. People who disagree are equal to the terrorists and science deniers they suck up to, equally stupid, equally insane, and equally part of the problem.

The title of the article, "Roving Defender of Evolution, and of Room for God" can be translated to "Roving Defender of SCIENCE, and of Room for MAGIC" which is of course ridiculous.

Some of the comments at Roving Defender of Evolution, and of Room for God are excellent. Two examples of the best comments:

Religion should have no place in a civilized society.

Religion is a cruel hoax sustained by miracles, fear, superstition and ignorance. Evolution is a science sustained by proven facts. Take your pick.
