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

What I wrote at the New York Times

This article, very well done.

At Chicago's Lincoln Park zoo I stood near a huge gorilla. We were separated by very thick glass. As I was talking to my friends the gorilla was waiting until I turned my head back to him. At that moment he got off his stool and threw his entire weight at me. Like the gorilla predicted I forgot about the glass and I was horrified. Then the gorilla laughed at me. I don't know if his laughter made any sound because of thick glass but he was obviously laughing because the practical joke he planned worked perfectly. This was an intelligent thinking creature.

We are one of the ape species. We are just one small twig on the vast tree of life. We are not the big deal most people think we are.

What I wrote at the NYT got 69 thumbs up. If I wrote this at the WSJ journal the fucking retards who infest that place would be harassing me and stalking me for what I wrote.
