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

I wrote this for a "The magic man did it" retard at the Wall Street Journal.

The difference between scientists and the religious reality deniers is scientists never invoke supernatural magic to solve scientific problems.
One of the advantages of being a normal person, aka atheist, is we don't have a reason to give up and say "The magic man did it." Atheists, who by the way are vast majority of the best scientists in the world, and even the rare religious scientists if they are competent, would never give up and say god did it. That's not science. It's called being lazy. Invoking a god fairy's magical powers is for people who have no curiosity. Curiosity is what makes scientific progress possible. Being lazy, giving up, and invoking a god, contributes nothing.
