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

I love chess endgames especially when I still have two bishops.

"Bishop vs Knight - Which one do you prefer?"

It depends on the position. If a knight finds a home deep in enemy territory that is a powerful knight.

In the endgame when the material is equal and when there are pawns on both sides of the board then 2 bishops should defeat a bishop & knight. I have won many games like this.

The bishops have the advantage in this endgame because they can get to the other side of the board in one move. However the knights are always dangerous. I use pawns to restrict the mobility of the knights.

When my opponent trades a bishop for my knight that's usually a good thing for me.
