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

30,000,000,000,000,000,000,000


The number is a bit big.

3 followed by 22 zeros. 

30 billion trillion.

It's the number of stars in the universe. This is just what we can see with the Hubble Telescope so the estimate is too low.

But who cares? 30 billion trillion is already more than a person could imagine. In the video they say there are not that many grains of sand on Earth and they are not making that up.

A few years ago when I first started using the internet I visited a Christian blog. This was before I found out Christians have never learned how to think. I asked them isn't it a bit strange the magic jeebus man would do his magical stuff here on this little spec of nothing in an unimaginably vast universe. I suggested the god fairy they believe in might not even know we exist. This of course assumes there is a magical fairy which is of course not true because it's insane to believe in magic.

My point was if there was a magical master of the entire universe it's nutty to pretend it thinks our planet and our species is a big fucking deal.

They didn't understand. They thought I was interested in joining their disgusting Christian death cult.

No thanks I said. I threw out that bullshit at age 18 and I'm ashamed it took me that long.

Do Christians read this blog? I doubt it. If one of you brainwashed people ever do read this, ask yourself why you think this planet, which is one of countless trillions of planets, would deserve your fairy's special treatment. Then try just once in your life to wonder if just maybe your religion is bullshit.
