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 asked a dumb but interesting question. I answered it.

What sins did the Dinosaurs commit for God to wipe them out with an asteroid and mass starvation?

You are assuming the magical master of the entire universe gave that asteroid a supernatural kick to put it on a collusion course with our planet.

If that's true (it's bullshit) then the god fairy thought it had better do something to make it possible for small mammals to develop into primates and eventually human apes.

The truth is that asteroid hit Earth by chance instead of smashing into our solar system's vacuum cleaner, Jupiter. If not for that asteroid those small mammals would still be hiding underground or on the top of trees to hide from the dinosaurs.

Reality is a wonderful and interesting thing. The religious imagination is boring and ridiculous.
