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

At another website somebody explained why uneducated morons love their religious fantasies.

This was an answer to a question I asked.

My question: Why do some people prefer religious fantasies while other people prefer scientific facts?

First, science is really confusing and requires that ultimate demon, Math! Religion is specifically designed for understanding by the less well gifted.

Second, reality tends to be a little harsh. It includes unpleasant ideas like, we are all going to die. Religion is specifically designed to promise only happy results for its members. Life everlasting! Crushing your enemies!

Third, science teaches that we are really only important to ourselves. Other than the damage we do to the planet, of course. Religion is specifically designed to assure us that we are the only important thing in the universe and that god is our wing man!

Looks like religion= 3; science = 0!
