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

At Reddit a chess player asked "How much can you reasonably expect to improve in 6 months?"

"How much can you reasonably expect to improve in 6 months?"

You can improve a lot in 6 months if you do the right things to educate yourself. I have 3 suggestions.

Use a slow time control and move slow. Make sure you're always making the best move. 10+10 works for me.

Win or lose after every game use the free lichess.org computer analysis to find out what you did wrong and what you should have done. The feature "Learn from your mistakes" is excellent and you should use it.

Study the endgame before studying anything else. I recommend the endgame studies at https://en.lichess.org/study

After I studied the endgame I was winning instead of losing. Endgame knowledge is more important than anything else. I am now, by the way, rated over 2000 at lichess.org
