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

"Maybe you came from a monkey, but I was created in the image of God."

Who wrote "Maybe you came from a monkey, but I was created in the image of God."?

It was an American Christian of course. Gallup polls have repeatedly shown that about 46% of Americans completely agree with the moronic "Maybe you came from a monkey, but I was created in the image of God."

There's a few problems with this bullshit. First of all the god fantasy is bullshit. And if we wanted to pretend a magic god fairy was real there's no reason to pretend it looked like a human ape.

And while we share an ancestor with monkeys, that ancestor certainly didn't look like a modern monkey because there's been 42 million years of evolution since then.

And what uneducated morons fail to understand (also known as all American Christians) we are much more closely related to the other ape species, and of course we are still apes.

How can half the population of an advanced country (we've been to the moon) be so hopelessly retarded? The problem is of course religion and the religious fear of science.

Here we are in 2013 and the never ending Christian war against science education continues. Most recently in Texas where Christian crybabies are complaining about the foundation of biology appearing in biology textbooks.

You can read about this burning stupidity at Evolution at center of new Texas education board debate over science textbooks and e-books.
