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 Lichess.org about resigning.

"On the contrary. People should mostly learn to resign earlier. When you are playing at a certain level it's just rude to play on."

I don't think it's rude. I appreciate the opportunity to practice how fast I can finish the game.

I have seen a game between 2 very strong players. The losing side would not resign. The player who had an easy win got careless and there was a stalemate.

Another game I watched, 2 strong players, one had an easy win. The loser would not resign. I appreciated that because I learned something about endgames.

Chess players with very little experience should never resign because then they can learn how to win.

I usually resign but only after it's totally hopeless. Sometimes I play until the end. If anyone complains they get blocked.

Numerous times I have lost my queen but I still won the game. Most people would just give up and I think that's wrong.
