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

Why do creationists constantly insult the integrity of the world's scientists?

At Yahoo Answers I asked "Why do creationists constantly insult the integrity of the world's scientists?"

Idiot America is infested with millions of stupid assholes who believe all creatures were magically created out of nothing 6,000 years ago. And I can't stress the words "stupid" and "assholes" strongly enough.

For people from normal countries, I'm not joking, America really does have millions of science-denying lunatics.

The best answer to my question was written by somebody with the internet name The Eye. It's one of the best explanations for the Christian disease I have ever seen. Here it is:

what choice do they have?

what weapon do they have against Science and logic other than "it's not the bible so it's wrong"?

look at everything WE have? we have logic and technology, a mapped time-line oof events and data points for every event, we can look back and prove that Cesar was, That Cleopatra was, That it took Alexander the Great to march an army across a desert in two weeks that took a religious figure 40 years to do...

we have the benefit of the collective brilliance of all human scientific, social, philosophical, biological, geographical, economical, artistic and culinary invention... they have a book.

they are hilariously outgunned and reaching for whatever thread they can grasp just to hold on. in the end all they have left is pig-headed stubborn-ness and an old, battered, shameful little book that tells them how to treat their slaves and stone their children...

they will deny everything. if it threatened the integrity of their faith they would deny the sky being blue.
