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

At Yahoo Answers I asked How would you define the word "god"?

Category: Society & Culture > Religion & Spirituality

Two dictionary definitions:

"the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being."

"a superhuman being or spirit worshiped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity."

My definition: A fairy with unlimited magical powers. It uses a magical wand to magically make solar systems and creatures out of nothing. It demands worship and it rewards the worshipers with a magical 2nd life. It's a fantasy for uneducated superstitious cowards.


A google search for "define god": Define god

Some of the best answers:

A very lucrative, tax free business.

I define "god" as the sum total of human ignorance, whether the honest or willful kind.

A man-made idea invented by highly superstitious people during the transformative Neolithic era when attention shifted from hunter/gatherer shamans to the celestial movements of the stars who became the new dieties responsible for the planting and harvest seasons.
