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.

What makes America great? Freedom. That's why many people from other countries want to live here and it's why almost nobody wants to leave. Abraham Lincoln made freedom possible for everyone. It was his greatest accomplishment.
The "In God We Trust" thing will always be on our coins and our cash but if it is changed some day I suggest "In Freedom We Trust". This has the advantage of not being controversial. All Americans want freedom but not all Americans believe in a deity.
My two cents, aka Lincoln pennies.
