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

Put this on yahoo answers at work where the computer works properly.


Category: Society & Culture > Religion & Spirituality There's always some hiding place for a god of the gaps, but what's the point? 

Eventually god will be chased out of that hiding place, if not now then maybe a thousand years from now.

MY QUESTION: Why believe in a magical being that has been repeatedly shown to be unnecessary? Why invoke a god to explain what hasn't been explained yet, when that gap in human knowledge will eventually be solved?

"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science."
-- Charles Darwin
