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

At the Wall Street Journal I wrote comments at an article about the Islamic State subhumans.

The Demonic Wellspring Unlike al Qaeda, which offers victory in some remote era, ISIS, in occupying territory and declaring the caliphate, invites its followers to live in the prophesied paradise now.

"If we understand ISIS essentially as an extremist religious organization, then the problem presumably lies with Islam itself and must be addressed by the Islamic world. I was recently on a talk show with Asra Nomani, an Indian-American journalist and self-described Muslim feminist and reformer. She brandished a copy of the hadiths—the teachings of Muhammad—and observed that many of the most horrible acts committed by ISIS, including slavery and the killing of apostates, enjoyed religious sanction. This is also the theme of a much-discussed recent essay in the Atlantic Monthly in which the journalist Graeme Wood observes that ISIS, far from being 'un-Islamic,' as both Muslim scholars and President Obama insist, relies for its doctrine upon 'coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam'."

"Moderate" Muslims should grow up, admit Islam is a terrorist organization, admit Allah is a ridiculous fantasy, and throw out their disgusting cult. I recommend reality, aka atheism.

Islam (the world's largest terrorist organization) is a major branch of theism. Theism is the moronic idea that there's a magical being (Allah, God, Zeus) who magically makes stuff out of nothing. Another idea of theism is human apes on planet earth magically fly to a magical paradise after they drop dead, living a magical 2nd life for eternity. There is no fantasy more cowardly, more insane, and more just plain stupid than the childish wishful thinking called heaven. The magical heaven fantasy is what makes terrorism possible. The idiots who believe in it (including the Islamic State and most Americans) are part of the out of control religious violence problem.
