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

What I wrote at chess.com about ERVs

"It is sadly no surprise that this evolution denier has literally no understanding of the subject. It's like a child who literally does not know that 2 + 2 = 4 arguing against arithmetic."
Well done. This is true for all the millions of science deniers. They know nothing about the science that makes them cry. And they never will know anything. There is no cure for their brain damage.
In my life I met one exception. He invoked the anti-science moron-infested Creationist Discovery Institute to explain why endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) are not evidence for evolution. I explained why the professional idiots were wrong. Then something amazing happened. He said this looks like a problem for creationism. Then he asked me to recommend a book about evolution. I suggested Why Evolution Is True and he said he would buy the book and read it.
What was different about him was he has a brain which is extremely unusual for science deniers. That's one creationist in my lifetime who was willing to grow up, educate himself, and face facts.
The know-nothing science deniers who infest this place completely ignored the massive evidence I provided recently. They will waste their entire pathetic lives never knowing what they are and where they came from. Nobody cares.
