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

"The denial of evolution requires denial of the bedrock of two centuries of biology and geology. That is quite a feat." -- Sean B. Carroll

It's difficult for me to understand how it's still possible to be an evolution denier in the 21st century. The deniers must have had all their curiosity completely sucked out of them. Why else would they have absolutely no desire to find out why every biologist in the world thinks they're idiots? I mean how hard is it to use google to look things up?

They keep complaining about fossils but they never spend the few seconds it would take to type "transitional fossils" in a google search box and hit the enter key. They never google "evidence evolution". They never do anything to understand. Are they insane? Extremely lazy? Their stupidity is just amazing.

Evolution deniers should know they are also Encyclopedia Britannica deniers. Do they think the brilliant scientists who write for the best encyclopedia in the world are liars? If they really think the world's best scientists are dishonest they could study the evidence they explain. Do they do that? Of course not. They are so certain about their magical creationism fantasy being real they would never bother looking anything up that might show they're wrong about everything. They have thrown out two centuries of scientific progress so they don't have to throw out their idiotic bible.

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

Sean B. Carroll, author of The Making of the Fittest: DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution, spoke for all biologists when he wrote about the Christian idiots who prefer magic instead of reality.

For all of those who do see the overwhelming evidence of natural selection and life's descent from ancestors, and the immense span of time over which the story of life unfolded, it is, to put it mildly, baffling how so many still do not. It is absolutely astonishing and often infuriating that some take it so far as to deny the immense foundation of evidence and to slander all the human achievement that foundation represents.
-- Sean B. Carroll


Jerry Coyne wrote about hundreds of evidences for evolution (from thousands of evidences to choose from) in Why Evolution is True. When he wrote about the massive fossil evidence which evolution deniers pretend doesn't exist, he explains why the fossils are not even necessary. The evolution deniers know nothing about the other evidence. How could they know anything about it? They are called willfully ignorant (and a few other things) for a good reason.

Even without fossils, we have evidence of human evolution from comparative anatomy, embryology, our vestigial traits, and even biogeography. We've learned of our fishlike embryos, our dead genes, our transitory fetal coat of hair, and our poor design, all testifying to our origins. The fossil record is really the icing on the cake.
-- Jerry Coyne

Evolution deniers (also known as creationists because they want to replace all of science with their childish magical creation out of nothing fantasy) have repeatedly shown they know absolutely nothing about what they're denying. They don't understand the evidence for evolution and they don't understand evolution. For example they have repeatedly said, thousands of times, evolution is a completely random process. They don't understand why the natural selection of favorable mutations is not random. Why don't they understand this extremely simple scientific concept? Perhaps it's because they are just plain stupid.

It would be so nice if those who oppose evolution would take a tiny bit of trouble to learn the merest rudiments of what it is they are opposing.
-- Richard Dawkins

"Oh No! Not Mr. Dawkins the atheist!"
-- A typical Christian retard

Here's an important fact for Christian assholes to understand. The reason virtually all biologists are atheists is because your magic god fairy is an anti-science fantasy. If you're going to ignore atheists (also known as normal people) then you're going to have to ignore almost every scientist in the world. Of course even the extremely rare religious biologists completely agree with the atheists about evolution. Nobody is more disgusted with you evolution deniers than the biologists who share your childish god fantasy.

What's the solution? Can stupid be fixed?

Of course there's nothing that can be done for a creationist who has somehow made it all the way to age 21 without being able to grow up. Fortunately there's some hope for the youngest victims of the child abuse called religious indoctrination. They know how to use google to look things up. If they wanted to study evolution it would not take them very long to figure out their parents are fucking idiots.

The UK has a religion problem. I recommend this article from www.guardian.co.uk for the links to evolution evidence and for the comments. Example: "If you talk to god, you're religious, but if god talks to you then you're mentally ill."

Of course if you're religious you're a nutjob.

Nessie as evidence against evolution … and five odder things kids are taught. The Accelerated Christian Education curriculum is used in more than 50 UK schools. How can it receive official backing?
