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

A Christian asked a question at https://www.reddit.com/r/TrueAtheism/

"I want to know exactly what atheists believe."
Your question is wrong. Real atheists don't "believe" in anything. Instead they accept what has strong evidence. If the evidence is weak the idea is thrown out.
"Okay Okay I get it! Atheism is not believing in the existence of any god."
Only an wimpy atheist would say that. I'm a real atheist. I'm 100% certain magic god fairies are not real. Same thing for the Easter Bunny. It's not real. There is no supernatural magic in the universe. Period.
Atheism is an acceptance of reality. Theism is a denial of reality. Take your pick.
"I read the Bible and pray daily and over all try to live a righteous life."
What a horrible waste of a life.
I suggest throw your disgusting worthless bible in the garbage where it belongs. Then educate yourself. A good place to start: "Faith Versus Fact, Why Science And Religion Are Incompatible" by Jerry Coyne, University of Chicago biologist
"I want to know what books give the strongest argument for evolution"
"Why Evolution Is True" by Jerry Coyne, University of Chicago biologist
By the way evolution by natural selection and genetic drift is the strongest fact of science.
