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

BOOK BY DAWKINS: The Ancestor's Tale: A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Evolution

My comment about someone's review of The Ancestor's Tale: A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Evolution by Richard Dawkins

"In his educational role, Dawkins must confront the insidious spread of Christian-inspired simplistic hype over evolution. He must take up space refuting its propaganda and invalid assumptions."

Neil Shubin's "Your Inner Fish, A Journey Into The 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body" had nothing in it about creationism stupidity. Perhaps that's a good thing. Just ignore the god-soaked idiots as if they didn't exist.

Dawkins, being who he is, of course could not resist criticizing the uneducated morons who prefer supernatural magic instead of science.

It's not just Christians who want to throw out all of biology, the Muslims have the same problem but for them the problem is worse. While there are some Christians who accept human evolution (they always stick their Magic Jeebus Man in there somewhere), virtually all Muslims are human evolution deniers. Some Muslims accept evolution for other creatures but they throw out the science that conflicts with their "Allah magically created humans" fantasy. All religions are brain damage. There is no cure.

Your review was excellent. Many thanks.
