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

If Heaven Really Existed

Most theists don't believe in heaven any more than I do. Oh they say they do, but they mistake hopes for beliefs. How can you tell if someone really, really believes? Invent a time machine, go back, and ask a 9/11 hijacker.

One video response to this video suggested that people fear going to hell. Well, then that means that they don't really believe in the saving grace of Jesus Christ. That just shifts the doubt from one part of their faith, to an even MORE important part of their faith. Thanks. Furthermore, I don't really buy the whole "fear of hell" argument, because when a believer's infant dies, the parents suffer severe grief, yet I've never met a bereaved parent who thought that God sent their baby to hell. Nice try.
