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

Most people who invest in the stock market are doing it wrong.

Buying shares hoping they go up in value is called gambling. The problem with gambing is you often lose money and even worse you always have to worry about losing money.

There is another way. It's possible to invest in the stock market and never have to worry about anything. What I do is find the safest corporations that have zero chance of going out of business. The corporation has to have a nice dividend and a very long history of raising that dividend every year. When I buy shares of this corporation, I buy those shares to keep for the rest of my life. If the price goes down I don't care because I'm not in it for the capital gains. I only care about the growing dividends which i reinvest. Eventually the income from dividends makes working for a living unnecessary, and all this without having to worry.
