"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science." -- Jerry Coyne

What I wrote for the religious retards who infest the Wall Street Journal.
Did God Die in 1859?
Yes and thank goodness. We don't need the violence, the brainwashing, the stupidity, the insanity, and the war against science.
Look at the newspaper. Virtually all the violence has something to with religious stupidity. Enough is enough.
The ridiculous god fantasy was thrown out in 1859. Unfortunately not everyone got the memo. The other problem is cowards can't live without their magical 2nd life, a ridiculous childish fantasy American Christians share with the Islamic State terrorists.
"Duh, I don't understand science therefore the Magic Man did it."
Every moronic religious fantasy is the wishful thinking of cowards. The cowards need to grow up, educate themselves, and face facts.
