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

February 10, 2017. What I wrote at the Wall Street Journal about Iranians who love Americans.

"The ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday bars the administration from enforcing its 90-day ban on travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, pending the outcome of a lawsuit filed by Washington state and Minnesota."
I agree with the president. Keeping these people out is the best possible way to keep America safe. I expect with some modifications he will eventually get his way.
The list of countries include Iran. I have a big problem with the Iranian government but I like the Iranians. I play chess with them online almost every day. About 3 years ago I watched a TV program about an American who travelled to Iran. He was surprised to find out most Iranians love Americans and he was welcomed in their homes. Today I found some more information that confirms what the traveler said. It's very interesting. 2 links:

A comment someone else wrote:
"Yes, there is a lot of pro American sentiment in Iran among the young. They are living under the yoke of the Mullahs and yearn for freedom. There was a pro American demonstration in the streets of Tehran during the Bush Administration of about 250,000 people following a soccer game. When we think about Iran we need to separate the people from the theocracy."
