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 on February 2, 2017.

I love "Learn from your mistakes" because it forces me to think and it's easy and fun to use. Everything else about lichess's totally free computer analysis is equally fantastic. I could spend all day writing about the numerous other features I like about lichess. If all other chess playing websites disappeared I wouldn't notice and I wouldn't care. I think most people would agree this is the best place to play chess.
I just tried "Practice with the computer". Wow. Easy to use. It also forces me to think and I can ask for all the help I want, first what piece should be moved, and if I want where it should be moved to. This is as good as or better than "Learn from your mistakes" and I will probably use it everyday.
It took a tremendous amount of hard work to create this wonderful place. I suggest the best way to say thank you is help pay the bills by being a patron which like everything else at lichess is easy to do. The choices are $5 or $10 or $20 or $50 or any amount you want, for example $1,000 a month. If you can only afford $5 a month that's a lot better than nothing. The advantages include a fancy thing on your profile and when you drop dead you will have a magical 2nd life in a magical paradise. The nice thing is everyone is equal here whether or not they help pay the bills. https://en.lichess.org/patron/...
