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

Two good questions: Why believe in the Magic Jeebus Man? Why believe in any god fairy?

I wrote a comment at another website. The questions asked were Why should we believe in a Christian god, and why should one need a god anyway?

Why should one need a god anyway?
A god fairy with unlimited magical powers is very useful for uneducated morons who are unable to understand scientific ideas. Also, the god fantasy makes it possible for cowardly gullible people to invent other supernatural bullshit like a magical soul that magically flies to a magical heaven. Cowards need their invisible friend who loves them.
The other question: why believe in the Christian fairy? Every moron who believes in a god believes the exact same bullshit their parents believe. There's an obvious reason for it. Intense brainwashing, which has been perfected after centuries of practice, always convinces the gullible child the religion of their parents is the one true bullshit religion. This is why Americans grow up to be Bible thumpers and in Muslim countries children grow up to be suicide bombers.
Of course occasionally a child will be bright enough to figure out his or her parents are fucking retards. So they throw out the cowardly bullshit and they become normal, also known as atheists.
