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

Pro-science Christians are desperately looking for a hiding place for their god of the gaps.

Science is killing the god fantasy and pro-science Christians know it. The creationists have solved this problem. They just deny all science they don't like. Pro-science Christians can't do that because they have a brain. They could throw out their god fantasy but they don't want to do that because they need the magical heaven fantasy.

Their solutions include this nutty idea: "I believe that God designed the universe for natural selection, knowing beforehand that it would result in beautiful things."

My question for pro-science Christians: Have you thought this idea out completely? If you think your god used its magical powers to invent natural processes like gravity and natural selection, do you really think those natural processes would not work without a magical being inventing the rules? Natural processes work because they are natural. Nothing supernatural is required.

It's too bad I don't allow comments anymore. I would be a bit interested in their answers.
