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

Questions I answered at Reddit - Debate Evolution

"For creationists, what evidence would cause you to reject creationism?"
I'm not a creationist (thank goodness) but I noticed there is nothing that would convince creationists to throw out magical creationism. Obviously they are unable to throw out Genesis. It's a religious boundary they will never cross.
It's unfortunate for them. They will waste their entire lives not knowing what they are and how they got here.
"Non-creationists, feel free to answer regarding rejecting evolution/accepting some form of creationism."
I know too much about how evolution works and the overwhelming evidence for it. Throwing out evolution equals throwing out all of reality. I couldn't do that even if I wanted to.
Also, I can't imagine anything more ridiculous, childish, and moronic as the magical creation of species.
