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

An idiot asked "Can I support evolution and still be Catholic?"

Accepting the established truth of evolution means you can't stick your magic god fairy in there anywhere. You can't invoke your fairy to invent or use or guide evolution. You have to admit evolution is a 100% pure natural process and your fairy had absolutely nothing to do with it. If you can't do that then you're a science denier.

And if you can admit your fairy had absolutely nothing to do with evolution then you have another problem. What possible thing could your fairy be necessary for if it wasn't necessary for something as complex as the development of new species?

The choice is either science or religion. You can't have both unless you're willing to be a liar, a person who can't even be honest with himself.
