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

How long will it be before Idiot America throws out the bullshit of Genesis?

Gallup polls show that only 15% of Americans accept the established truth of evolution and accept it as a completely natural process (a god fairy had nothing to do with it).

This idea, evolution by natural selection without magic, has the advantage of being the strongest fact of science. But still here in Idiot America 85% of Americans either deny the whole thing or even worse think their fairy's magic wand is one of the mechanisms of evolution.

The thousands of evidences for evolution from comparative genomics, undeniable evidence that grows every day, have totally killed the magical creation fantasy. Since truth has a long history of defeating bullshit, America's science deniers will become virtually extinct eventually. The question is how long will it take? A hundred years? A thousand years?

I suggest it would help if this idea that we must suck up to everyone else's fantasies, that we should respect religious insanity, no matter how wrong it is, was thrown out. It's time to declare total war against stupidity. We need to stop being nice. We need to tell Christian assholes to fuck off and shut the fuck up about science education. We need to ridicule religion, all religion, including religion that pretends to be moderate. There is no moderate religion because there is nothing moderate about being a fucking idiot.
