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 does evolution prove there is No God?"

"How does evolution prove there is No God?"

Evolution, which is a basic fact of science, completely destroys the most important hiding place for the god of the gaps. Evolution makes a god's magic wand unnecessary to explain the development of new species. A magical being (aka a god) with nothing to do is a magical being who doesn't exist.

Of course a superstitious person who was desperate to have a reason to believe in a magical being could always invoke its magical powers for some unsolved scientific problem, like for example how did the first simple living cells get a foothold on Earth almost four Billion years ago. But what's the point of hiding its magic wand there when eventually it's going to have to find some other hiding place.

Also, if a god fairy is not necessary to explain something as complex as the development of new species, it's ridiculous to pretend it might be necessary to explain something else.

The choice is reality (science) or fantasy (a god fairy's magical powers). Most educated people, especially the world's best scientists, have chosen reality.
