"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

What I wrote about a creationist retard at chess.com
Pawnkreeper gives me the creeps. That is one sick dude.
What makes him so disgusting is he has no desire to learn anything. For me education is for life. I want to learn all I can about how the world works. The science denier goes out of his way to know nothing. All science deniers have this problem. It's called willful ignorance.
It would not kill the flat-earthers to read Why Evolution is True by Jerry Coyne but they will never do that. They can't even be bothered to watch a video about the subject. And if they ever did read a book that explains some of the countless thousands of evidences for evolution they would make no effort to understand. Instead they would look for imaginary problems.
These science deniers call themselves creationists because they believe every species was magically created out of nothing. These people live in a everything-is-magic fantasy land. It's an incurable mental illness.
Biologists can determine evolutionary relationships with extreme accuracy when they compare DNA sequences of different living species. The science deniers know nothing about this. They don't have any idea how much science they have to throw out to believe in their magical nonsense.
