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

A fucking retard asked "Did God create evolution?"

I'm betting you believe "God created evolution" and I'm betting you won't like my answer. 

One problem is this a belief. Why would you want to stick a belief into science? Science is all about researching, testing, and finding evidence for or against an idea. How do you research and test and find evidence for a magical being? Sticking god in there is not science. It's religion and it's fair to say it's fantasy. Religion should be kept separate from science because it has absolutely nothing to do with science. 

Another problem: With or without a magical being there would still be natural selection, for the same reason there would still be gravity. Natural processes do not need supernatural inventors. 

Only 15% of Americans accept evolution as a completely natural process (magical beings not required for any of it). Meanwhile virtually 100% of biologists accept evolution as a natural process (no magical inventors or users). Isn't that interesting? 

Another interesting thing: Charles Darwin, the father of modern biology, never once mentioned the word "god" in his On the Origin of Species. Same thing for every biologist who came after Darwin.
