"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

Something I wrote for the Christian fucktards at the Wall Street Journal.
"Every day, stories of grace and mercy are being written as people of faith help those in need. Catholic Charities has helped single moms fill their basic needs. The Mormon Church, through LDS Charities, has donated wheelchairs to hundreds of thousands of people. The University Muslim Medical Association Community Clinic in Los Angeles provides care for thousands of people in a desperate part of town. The Jewish Social Service Agency supports families of children with autism. Samaritans Purse provides disaster relief across the world."
Religions do good things. Good for them. It's too bad all these religious cults are total nonsense that completely depend on the most idiotic childish fantasy ever invented, the idea there is supernatural being with unlimited magical powers hiding somewhere in the universe. Here we are in the 21st century and there are still superstitious people who are willing to believe in any ridiculous fantasy that makes them feel good, for example a magical 2nd life.
