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 Reddit - Chess.

My 1st chess club I was 16 years old in the year 1965. It was in the back room of a bowling alley in Chicago. They gave me some beer to drink. I came back every week and because I was a student everything was free. They took the time to teach me lots of stuff. It was wonderful. Lots of bright people there including a University of Chicago professor and a World War One veteran.
These days chess clubs are obsolete because we have the wonderful Lichess.org. My living room is an international chess club. I never imagined this was possible in 1965.
