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

I found this very long list of extremely powerful evidences for evolution. Most of it I have seen before. For the other stuff Google is my friend.

comparative anatomy (homology, atavism, vestigiality, Evolutionary developmental biology, comparative biochemistry (Human Chr. 2 Fusion -> fantastic evidence) genetic similarity homologous mutations versus unshared mutations (the one we discussed right now) phylogenetic reconstructions (genes or proteins, mitochondrial DNA, also ribosomal RNA) Shared/unshared pseudogenes, repeats, transposons, Endogenous Retroviruses Cytochrome c and b variation mathematical and biogeographical models of human migration used as predictive tools
