"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science." -- Jerry Coyne

American Christians are cowardly fucking idiots. They're equal to the terrorists of the Islamic State.
A comment I wrote at the Wall Street Journal:
Mr. Baxter, I couldn't find your comment where you wrote "Please tell us what happens after death. Do you really believe that you have the knowledge to understand such things."
Any unbrainwashed child could figure it out. When animals (including human apes) drop dead they become a stinking pile of garbage, aka worm food. Why is that so difficult for you to understand? I know what you're problem is. Just like the cowardly terrorists of the Islamic State, you're afraid of reality, so you believe in the childish magical heaven fantasy, not caring the fantasy is ridiculous, impossible, and makes terrorism possible. That makes your kind part of the religious violence problem.
