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

human chromosome two and ERVs

Many thanks to Atheist Anthony for this excellent summary of the extremely powerful evidence for our evolutionary relationship with the other ape species from human chromosome two and ERVs:

"Explain why your chromosome #2 is almost identical to chimpanzee chromosomes 2p and 2q fused end to end, with disabled telomeres in the centre, 2 sets of centromeres, and identical ERVs throughout? How else would you explain that?"
-- Atheist Anthony
