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

"The extremists are afraid of books and pens. The power of education frightens them. They are afraid of women. The power of the voice of women frightens them."

At the United Nations on her 16th birthday, Malala Yousafzai. Her speech was about the Taliban cowards who shot her in the head  for promoting education for girls in Pakistan.
Please see my other post about this courageous young woman at Cowardly Muslim assholes tried to murder a 14 year old girl.

The full text of her brilliant speech at Full text of Malala Yousafzai's Speech at United Nations.

A video of her speech and an equally important video about the Taliban atrocities in Swat Valley where Malala was shot: Malala Yousafzai, Girl Shot by Taliban, Makes Appeal at U.N. and Class Dismissed: Malala's Story
