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

What I wrote at the Wall Street Journal but then deleted to avoid harassment.

"Bill O’Reilly will exit Fox News with a severance package valued at about $25 million"

Stupidity can be very lucrative. O'Reilly thinks biology teachers should teach moronic religious fantasies.

In 2005 a Federal Judge ruled that is was unconstitutional to teach magical creationism (aka intelligent design) in public school science classrooms.

After the ruling was handed down, some pundits immediately attacked it, notably Bill O'Reilly on Fox News accusing the Federal Judge (who was appointed by President Bush) of being a fascist and an activist judge.
