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

Extremely well done video about the evolution of whales.

My comment: Extremely well done. Will this video convince the evolution deniers? Of course not but thanks for trying.

Another comment is a reply to an idiot:

"I can't let myself believe it all happened by sheer one-in-a-trillion chance. I'm humble enough to admit that there is someone better than me that made life possible."

No, you are so arrogant and narcissistic that you must believe you are here at the demand of a grand creator who designed the entire universe with a special purpose in mind just for you. You lack the humility to accept that you are simply a fortunate collection of ancient stellar material, temporarily coalesced into an animated biological package. Beyond the little bit of matter that makes up your body, the universe at large could give a wit about your presence in it, for it only requires that the matter be there... it does not care what form it takes. In this respect, you are no different from a rock of equal mass. To understand this truth is to understand how fragile and precious life really is, and gives it far greater meaning than you will ever know.
