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

Chicago is a magical place.

I'm stranded in south Florida right now. It's not bad here. The palm trees grow. The lizards control the insects. The ocean is warm. I love swimming at night and I can do that in our pool the entire year.

But I lived most of my life in Chicago and I want to go back. Despite the terrible winters and the gunfire and the other bad things, I'm sure I will return to the best city in the world someday. Only people who are from there would understand why.

Lake Shore Drive, Chicago
