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

The most recent update of my Mac Mini desktop computer has Siri which I can use to ask questions. I asked Siri a question about our evolutionary relationship with chimpanzees. Siri gave me some websites including this very interesting article about how long ago the common ancestor of chimpanzee apes and human apes lived.

Ancestors Of Humans And Chimps May Have Begun Diverging 13 Million Years Ago

I learned quite a bit about evolutionary clocks from this article.

Another article I found: Why Haven't All Primates Evolved into Humans?

"To say we are more 'evolved' than our hairy cousins is just wrong. (See how long you last naked in the Congo Heartland, and then tell me who's got the evolutionary upper hand.)"
