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

The first thread I created at "Reddit - Debate a Christian". Will this get past the censorship? It has not been approved yet. They have a lot of ridiculous rules so this will probably not get published even though Christian scum need to read it.

I don't understand why religious people think faith is a virtue.

I remember my Catholic school religious indoctrination more than a half century ago. The nuns repeatedly said "You must have faith". In other words we must believe in stuff that has zero evidence. When I grew up I realized how ridiculous this brainwashing was.

Interesting quote from a University of Minnesota biologist about 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
