"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science." -- Jerry Coyne
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

At Yahoo Answers I answered this question: What can I expect in a Catholic church service?
I'm qualified to answer the question because I endured nine years of brainwashing at a Catholic school. This by the way is post number 1,400 at this blog. Here's the question and my answer:
What can I expect in a Catholic church service?
You can expect to be bored to death.
All you got to do is follow the idiot crowd. When they sit you sit. When they stand you stand. When they kneel you kneel. You don't have to say anything. You can just sit there like a zombie and you will fit right in.
There is a ceremony where most Catholics walk to the altar where the idiot priest gives the idiot Catholics a tasteless wafer to eat. It's suppose to contain Jeebus which is ridiculous but Catholics are idiots and they will believe anything. You can ignore the ceremony and just sit there. If you want to experience it just watch the person in front of you. You got eat the bread wafer immediately or expect to be physically assaulted.
