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

A suggestion I wrote for the god-soaked fucktards at the Wall Street Journal.

"But in 'Self-Reliance,' Emerson says that 'prayer is in all action': in the farmer kneeling to weed his field, for example."
OK, so when a farmer weeds his field he is praying. Right. Got it. Makes a lot of sense. Whenever anyone does something they're praying.
A suggestion for the Wall Street Journal - Houses of Worship:
Why not give equal time to reality. Instead of this ridiculous praying stuff, how about an article that explains why religions are wrong about everything.
For example you could ask Jerry Coyne (University of Chicago biologist) to write an article about his book, "Faith vs. Fact, Why Science and Religion Are Incompatible".
