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

More evidence for evolution.


Lighting the Way to Reality edited 17 mins ago
Because they mindlessly believe in ancient Hebrew myth. They also display an ignorance of evolution and basic science, and make idiotic arguments such as that made by @To Serve.

>>"By your logic. A Cloud is 99% water. A Watermelon is 98% water. Therefore we must assume that Clouds evolved from Watermelons."

And that same responder shows his abysmal ignorance about the evidence for evolution.

>"This is why it is called the Theory of Evolution. And if you truly apply the meaning of the word, you can't even call it a Theory. Because it can't be tested."

Evolution has been tested by various means ever since Darwin proposed his theory, and it has always come through with flying colors.

One test is performed every time a paleontologist digs in geologic strata--the results of which could falsify evolution if it is false and verify the creation model if it is true. The results, in fact, verify evolution and falsify the creation model.

Evolutionary theory would be falsified if any of the 5,000 present-day species of mammals, including human, or the 10,000 present-day species of birds were found in the fossil strata where they should not be found (for example, in the same strata with dinosaur fossils). No such finds have been made. But, according to the creationist flood "model" those species should be found in those strata.

Here are some other examples in which the theory of evolution has been tested
and passed with flying colors.
