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

Darwin killed God. I explained why at Yahoo Answers.

"Why are some theists very dishonest about science? Where does this idea that if the science is true then there absolutely cannot be a god? Evolution is real, it's testable, measurable, observable and very much a part of every living thing on this planet. So what. It does not disprove or prove god in anyway." 

You're right about everything you wrote. However science, especially evolutionary biology, has repeatedly removed hiding places for the god of the gaps. A god fairy who never had anything to do is a fairy that doesn't exist. 

My point is Darwin killed the moronic god fantasy. If the fairy's magical powers were not necessary for something as complex as the development of new species, then it's ridiculous to pretend it was necessary for anything else.
