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

"God is an ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance that's getting smaller and smaller as time moves on." Is this an obvious truth?

A list of possible answers from the god-soaked:

1. "My fairy magically invented natural processes."

2. "My fairy magically started the whole thing."

3. "My fairy magically invented or used or guided evolution."

4. "The pope accepts the truth of evolution even though he still believes a magical soul is magically inserted into the human ape species (but of course not our chimpanzee ape cousins) because people are special and their existence was inevitable even though the dinosaurs would still be ruling the Earth if not for a large space rock wiping them out 66 million years ago."

5. "There is no evidence for evolution."

6. "I have a long list of incompetent fake scientists who are evolution deniers."

7. "Evolutionary biology is not one of the most important branches of science. Evolutionary biology is a religion."

8. "It takes more faith to believe in evolution than my magical-creation-out-of-nothing fantasy."

9. "I don't believe in a god of the gaps even though everyone else knows that's exactly what I believe in."

10. "My fairy will magically torture you in its magical hell."

11. They will use bible quotes to insult me.

This is why I prefer answers from normal people, aka atheists.
