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

This Neil deGrasse Tyson video about how life got a foothold on Earth will make the god-soaked cry.

From a Nova video, "Origins How Life Began", at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8cRr3NkpLA

"Life began as a chemical act. Life is really chemistry. There is no question about that. In fact it's a chemistry that when you get the recipe right, it goes and it goes fairly quickly."

How life got a foothold on Earth about 3.8 Billion years ago is a favorite hiding place for the god of the gaps. But there are no gaps. The fairy's magic wand was never necessary for anything.

Miller–Urey experiment
