"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

At an Wall Street Journal article about the magical resurrection of the Magic Jeebus Man I wrote a comment.
"Jesus ... healed the sick, stilled storms, raised people from the dead ... he died an agonizing death ... After three days in the tomb, he rose from the dead."
Apparently Jesus had magical powers. I wonder if he used a magic wand like Harry Potter.
A few years ago I was wondering how Christians solved a problem with their magical resurrection fantasy. I looked it up. The Catholic Church had something about it. The problem is the internal organs have been decomposing for 3 days. Their solution was simple. They said this would a problem but in this case there was no decomposing at all. They didn't say why or how, they just said it would not a problem.
To defend the magical resurrection the Catholic Church invented more magic. That's what every religious fantasy is, a big pile of magic.
An important question: Is magic real or not? Of course it's not real. Any child could figure that out.
The magical resurrection never happened because it's impossible. Christianity should be thrown out.
The usual excuse to ignore what I wrote: "The bible says there were 500 witnesses and there's other evidence in the bible for the resurrection. And the bible is true because the bible says the bible is true."
Even if those dead gullible witnesses were real instead of invented, and even if there were millions of witnesses, there was no magical resurrection. Dead animals, including dead human apes, stay dead.
If anyone can't understand this simple fact of reality then they have a mental problem.
Why do I care? It's because this mental illness has made America a laughing stock and because children are being brainwashed to believe this disgusting nonsense.
Another comment I wrote for a Christian retard. Christians are just plain fucking stupid.
Hello O.C. Garza.
Even though a few billion people agree with you a supernatural magician who can do anything and everything is not possible, there is no evidence for it, and it's not necessary. You believe in its existence and its unlimited magical powers only because the fantasy makes you feel good.
You people believe in this ridiculous god fantasy but even worse you pretend you know everything about it. For example the magical nonsense about the magical "Son" who performed magical miracles to impress his gullible customers, and then incredibly he magically became alive after being murdered and after decomposing for 3 days. The magic is out of control with you people.
Even if we wanted to throw reality and pretend the Magic Man was real there is no reason it would give this tiny insignificant planet so much special treatment in a vast universe of countless trillions of solar systems.
There is no advanced country in the world as god-soaked as America. It's a terrible problem.
