"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 about religious bullshit at chess.com:
What happens with the after life? What do you need to do to get there?
The childish magical 2nd life fantasy (which makes terrorism possible) was invented by cowards and even today cowards still believe in it. Reality makes them cry. There is no evidence for it. It's just the wishful thinking of feeble-minded cowards.
What exactly is God? Is God a male, female, both, or neither?
The magic god fairy is not real but I call it "it" because I can't imagine why the fairy would require sex organs.
How does God treat religions other than your own religion?
The numerous cults show that the god-soaked are making everything up and calling it fact even though it's childish nonsense. This is why religions have a long history of violence that today is getting worse. It's out of control now. There are one or more suicide bombings every day of the year. There are countless other religious atrocities every day. Anyone who still belongs to a religion has no moral values.
Are the stories in the bible real occurrences, or are they just made up stories meant to guide us in life?
The bible is 100% pure bullcrap. It's fiction and it's disgusting.
Should religion in general be used as a guide for government?
Definitely not. Theocracies do not work.
Evidence for the magical god fairy? Zero. Nothing. It was invented by people who knew nothing about the natural world. Superstitious people still believe in it. Their problem is they know nothing or virtually nothing about science.
Atheism is an acceptance of reality. Theism is a denial of reality. Take your pick.
