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

Priceless stuff written by internet name "Fiveofswords".


It's remarkable that evolution was widely accepted before DNA, which was predicted, was actually discovered.
Now that we know about DNA there simply is nothing to speak about anymore.
It's accepted that organisms pass their DNA to offspring. Its accepted that DNA does not always replicate perfectly. Its accepted (almost a tautology) that organisms more capable of surviving are also more likely to survive.
These three facts, when taken together, must logically result in the truth of evolution. If a person cannot comprehend that, then imho the only explanation is that they are either ignorant of those facts, or they are an imbecile....in fact they would ironically imho somewhat inferior to the average chimpanzee in their capacity for abstract reasoning.
any sort of subterfuge is pointless...the theoretical lack of perfect knowledge is irrelevant, the 'freedom' to have stupid ideas without facing prison time is irrelevant. The only personal choice here is whether you want to be a child or an adult...can you handle reality or not.
