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 the Wall Street Journal about the stupidity of faith.

"Pls tell us specifically which 'coward' invented faith?"

The god-soaked are cowards because they have "faith" in a magical 2nd life instead of growing up and facing facts.

The idea called faith was invented by primitive humans who knew nothing about science. For them their god of the gaps had unlimited hiding places.

We know things these day. Educated people who are not insane (aka not religious) have figured out the god fairy is not necessary for anything therefore it doesn't exist. Even without the science the idea there's a magical being hiding somewhere in the universe was always childish moronic fantasy.

Faith is believing in something that has no evidence. It's not a virtue. It an excuse for cowards to believe any childish fantasy that makes them feel good for example the magical 2nd life fantasy that American Christians share with the Islamic State terrorists.

If an idea requires faith it should be thrown out because it's bullcrap.

A big part of religious brainwashing (aka child abuse) is this idea which is repeated thousands of times: "You must have faith."

That's ridiculous.

Every religious cult completely depends on brainwashing children. If the god-soaked had the decency to wait until their victims were old enough to think for themselves then they would never buy the moronic fantasies.
There is no excuse for this child abuse. The brainwashing destroys all the curiosity children are born with. They learn how to not think.
