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

"Every mystery ever solved turned out to be NOT magic. Every century has its battle over some natural phenomena - is the cause natural or the direct hand of god. Naturalism has won every such debate for 1000 years and never lost once."

It's impossible to be more brain-dead retarded than an evolution denier. In the comments at this article written by a god-soaked asshole you can see the difference between an uneducated moron and a scientist who knows what he's taking about.

The fucking idiot calls itself "theot58". The scientist is "Rick-K". Mr. Tard Boy (theot58) doesn't want to learn anything and of course he's not capable of learning anything. His only goal is to waste a scientist's time. This is normal behavior for Christian assholes.

Please click the link for the whole thing. Here's an example where Rick-K writes a long list of some of the evidences for evolution. I'm especially interested in inherited ERV markers. This blog has a post about it at Endogenous Retroviruses make Jeebus cry. The science deniers always lose because of their breathtaking stupidity, because they don't know what they're talking about, and because they are wrong about everything. The science deniers are afraid because their god of the gaps has run out of hiding places. Cowards can't exist without their Invisible Magic Man.

Against your youtube, I offer the shared genome and DNA of all known life on Earth.

Against your single creationist botanist (Sanford) I offer the biology departments of every accredited university in the United States.

Against the Kansas schoolboard hearings (where scientists didn't even show up because they thought it was too absurd) I offer the overwhelming, crushing defeat of the school board in Dover PA when the scientists DID show up.

Against your religiously-based denial I offer the evidence found in patterns of morphology, co-evolved relationships, convergent evolution, observed speciation, Lenski experiments, shared DNA, inherited ERV markers, molecular biology, vestigial traits, atavisms, genetic mutation, embryology, the fossil record, paleontology, archaeology, transitional species predictions, radiometric dating, dendrochronology, thermoluminescence dating, ice core dating, biostratiography, archaeogenetics, biogeography, plate tectonics, geology, chemistry, and physics.

Against your "misspellings" I offer gene duplication and divergence - google it.

Every mystery ever solved turned out to be NOT magic. Every century has its battle over some natural phenomena - is the cause natural or the direct hand of god. Naturalism has won every such debate for 1000 years and never lost once.

Cherrypicking crackpot quotes is not how truth is found.

From another Rick-K comment:
Your dismissal of the consensus of thousands of scientists certainly takes chutzpah, but is proof of nothing. However, we use DNA every day to PROVE critically important things in our lives: the relationship between parent and child, the guilt or innocence of a defendant, the identity of human remains. And it is this same DNA that proves your relationship to African chimpanzees, to Central American agouti, to Pacific salmon, and to all other life on Earth. If by "interpretation" you mean the mathematical certainty found in DNA analysis, then you're right. There is no room for any interpretation other than the fact that you and those chimpanzees share common ancestors.
