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

Religion is brain damage. Religious indoctrination is child abuse.

The blog has 81 posts about religious indoctrination

I'm interested in this subject because I was a victim. When I was very young I actually believed a god fairy is real even though I had never seen this fairy and even though my professional brainwashers were ugly nuns wearing ridiculos black and white clothes that left only their stupid looking faces exposed.

What chance did I have? I was only a little kid and I thought everyone in the world believed in a god fairy. My entire youth was wasted believing in god bullshit and all the other bullshit of the Catholic Death Cult.

Fortunately I went to a public high school where not everyone was infected with the god disease. But still it wasn't until my 4th year of high school before I realized going to church was a terrible waste of time.

What bugs me is all the time I spent enduring religious brainwashing could have been spent learning about science. But we learned zero about science because my deranged asshole teachers didn't know anything about it. The word "evolution" never became part of my vocabulary because that word was never mentioned.

"Scientific education and religious education are incompatible. The clergy have ceased to interfere with education at the advanced state, with which I am directly concerned, but they have still got control of that of children. This means that the children have to learn about Adam and Noah instead of about Evolution; about David who killed Goliath, instead of Koch who killed cholera; about Christ's ascent into heaven instead of Montgolfier's and Wright's. Worse than that, they are taught that it is a virtue to accept statements without adequate evidence, which leaves them a prey to quacks of every kind in later life, and makes it very difficult for them to accept the methods of thought which are successful in science."
-- J.B.S. Haldane
