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

"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." -- Sir Isaac Newton

Christian creationists (aka science deniers) like to invoke Newton to defend their childish magical creation fantasy even though Newton died 82 years before Darwin was born. Newton was a brilliant scientist so most certainly if he lived in the 21st century he would have loved evolution.

"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."
-- Sir Isaac Newton

Two of the greatest giants of science were Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin. They were both way ahead of their time.


Totally off topic:

I was just reading one of my older posts from about two years ago. It's off-topic but I suggest it's the most useful post on this blog of 1,411 posts. It's called "How to be wealthy" and it was written by a person (me) who has learned quite a bit about profiting from the stock market (instead of being wiped out). And I learned this stuff the hard way. You can learn what you need to know the easy way. Just read Totally off-topic post: How to be wealthy.
