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

Christianity is a disease. The members are insane. But I will say something nice about two branches of the Christian Death Cult.

The Amish. It's impossible to not like them. They don't bother anyone. They live without modern conveniences. Every thing they manufacture is more than perfect. At one of the best grocery stores in America (in a suburb of Chicago where I used to live) they sold Amish chicken which was much more nutritional and more delicious than the factory chickens most Americans eat.

The Seventh Day Adventists. They are evolution deniers. Their beliefs are insane. But they get the most important thing right. They have a very healthy lifestyle.

From wikipedia:

Since the 1860s when the church began, wholeness and health have been an emphasis of the Adventist church.[30] Adventists are known for presenting a "health message" that recommends vegetarianism and expects adherence to the kosher laws in Leviticus 11. Obedience to these laws means abstinence from pork, shellfish, and other foods proscribed as "unclean". The church discourages its members from the use of alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs (compare Christianity and alcohol). In addition, some Adventists avoid coffee, tea, cola, and other beverages containing caffeine.

Research funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health has shown that the average Adventist in California lives 4 to 10 years longer than the average Californian. The research, as cited by the cover story of the November 2005 issue of National Geographic, asserts that Adventists live longer because they do not smoke or drink alcohol, have a day of rest every week, and maintain a healthy, low-fat vegetarian diet that is rich in nuts and beans.

One more thing about Seventh Day Adventists: I know one who is from Haiti. She is the nicest young lady I ever met.
