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 breathtaking stupidity of American Christians and Muslim terrorists. What I wrote about them at another website:

The title of this post is "The Science of Evolution" so maybe it's OK to say something about the millions of dense Americans (not to mention thousands of terrorists) who want to throw out this science.
Their idea goes like this: Evolution is wrong therefore magical creation is how the world works. Everything is magical.
Besides being ridiculous, childish, insane, and idiotic, this idea has a very big problem. Evidence against evolution (imaginary evidence because there is absolutely zero evidence against this important branch of science) would not be evidence for something else.
If the extremely dense evolution deniers what to throw out evolution, they have to explain why any other idea is correct. They can't say "evolution is wrong therefore magic". They have to provide evidence for magic. For example can they test this magic? Do they have one shred of evidence for it? No. Of course not. It's a just a fantasy for cowards who fear reality.
Is there any cure for their disease? Almost always the answer is no. The brain damage can't be fixed.
When a uneducated coward complains about evolution I ask them "what is your explanation for the diversity of life?" When they say a fairy magically created every creature I tell them to get psychiatric help. Then I tell them to shove it because they are equal to dogs. Of course that's not being fair to dogs. Dogs have a brain.
