A Christian fucktard asked "How does believing in evolution help you get through in life?" as if basic scientific facts are beliefs. I wrote an answer.

Knowing how we got here is a nice thing to know. And knowing that we are just an ape species is extremely interesting. And studying evolution, how it works, the massive evidence for it, and how biologists make predictions which must be true if evolution is true, it's all very interesting.

I can look at nature and actually understand it. And I have this interesting knowledge about our evolutionary relationship with every living thing, including the banana I eat and the cockroach I step on.

Evolution, like all basic facts of science, do not require faith because these facts have one thing your magic god fairy fantasy will never have, evidence, tons of it.

From another answer: "The fact that genetics exists at all is proof of evolution, and the fact that you think you need faith to believe in evolution over an invisible sky being whose only proof is a book written thousands of years ago shows you know almost nothing about science."

Almost nothing? The science denier knows nothing about science. You don't need the word "almost". These people don't even know what science is.


Why Evolution is True by Jerry Coyne, University of Chicago biologist

Read it. If you don't read it you have no right to say anything about evolution because you know absolutely nothing about it.
