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

I wrote the first comment at a WSJ article about some idiot who wrote a book about the Magic Jeebus Man.

Hello folks. Hardcore atheist and anti-theist here.
I congratulate Mr. Lewis for making tons of money for selling a book about nonsense. The religion industry is very lucrative.
"Lewis acts like a guide on the journey from unbelief to faith."
"Faith" is the keyword. Faith is an excuse to believe in whatever makes people feel good. The problem is if something requires faith then it has no real evidence and it's probably totally wrong.
What keeps these childish supernatural fantasies from going extinct is the relentless brainwashing of young gullible children. The brainwashers know the indoctrination has to start at a very young age. They know they can't wait until the victims are old enough to think for themselves.
I try to be optimistic about this terrible problem. I think science education and the internet are killing the moronic Magic Man fantasy and that's a good thing.
