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

The religious implications of evolution and why the god-soaked fear science.

Islam requires throwing out human evolution. It's OK for Muslims to accept evolution for other creatures but definitely not for human apes. Muslims who grow up and accept 21st century science almost always throw out Islam, while of course keeping quiet about it to avoid being executed. 

For some Christian cults it's different. They can accept human evolution but always they stick their magical god fairy into it. Christians can't accept a scientific fact without polluting it with magic. 

The existence of religions completely depends on this fantasy: People are special and not just apes who descended from ancient apes. The idea is we are so special we get to magically fly to a magical paradise after we drop dead. It's this cowardly disgusting fantasy that makes religion possible. And this is why evolution is the greatest possible threat to religion, because evolution shows that there's nothing special about us. We are just one small insignificant twig on the vast tree of life.
