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

One of many reasons why Idiot America is infested with idiots.

In American high schools there are "Advanced Placement" courses for the most brilliant students. So of course Advanced Placement biology courses would make evolution a major part of every lesson. But incredibly this is not true in some American schools. This example is from a northern state, far from the brain-dead bible belt of the deep south.

Obviously a large majority of American biology teachers need to be fired immediately because they are god-soaked uneducated morons.

From Evolution missing link in some Pa. high schools? By DAVID TEMPLETON, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

PITTSBURGH (AP) — During an Advanced Placement biology course in Easton Area High SchoolJennifer Estevez's teacher sped through the large chapter on evolution, focusing on one formula for the AP exam and the basics: survival of the fittest and natural selection. In those high school years in Northampton County, she also would attend a Baptist leadership retreat where a speaker denounced evolution as false, unproven science.
