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

"Creationism does not belong in school. It belongs in church." Translation: Child abuse is OK but not OK in schools.

I see this comment a lot and it's wrong: "Creationism does not belong in school. It belongs in church."

Creationism equals magic. Teaching magical bullshit anywhere is child abuse. But there are people who should know better who tolerate this child abuse.

Would these idiots say sexual child abuse is OK if it's in a church? They probably wouldn't say that so why tolerate any other kind of child abuse? By the way there's lots of sexual child abuse in churches but that's another subject, and it's too disgusting for this blog.

The child abuse too many people tolerate is called religious indoctrination. This child abuse is legal but the child abusers belong in prison for life. If it was up to me their punishment would be many times worse.

What happens to innocent children when daddy, mommy, and the asshole preacher man tells them people were magically created out of nothing by the Magic Jeebus Man?

They know longer wonder why things are the way they are. The curiosity that makes scientific progress possible is destroyed.

Thanks to religious indoctrination children learn how to be stupid. They learn how to be gullible, willing to believe any bullshit. And they are brainwashed to believe faith in bullshit is a virtue.

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.
