"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 on March 15, 2017 at the Wall Street Journal about the cowards who wish for a magical 2nd life.
"Suicide bombers attacked a courthouse and restaurant in Damascus on Wednesday, killing at least 39 people and wounding dozens more"
Muslims have been blowing themselves up every day for several years. What motivates them to do this ridiculous thing? A childish belief in a magical 2nd life in a magical paradise, a cowardly fantasy terrorists share with American Christians.
