"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science." -- Jerry Coyne

This is something I wrote about the morons who think their Magic Man listens to them talk to themselves. The stupid, it burns.
If I wanted to throw out all of reality and pretend a Magical Master of the Entire Universe was real (aka Zeus, Allah, God), I can't imagine why it would pay attention to the human apes on this insignificant planet in a universe of countless trillions of solar systems. Mr. God, if it was real, might not even notice we exist.
Of course the god fantasy is a ridiculous idea. It was useful to explain things thousands of years ago but we know things these days. We know a god fairy's magical powers were never necessary for anything. Even without all the science we have today the Mr. God thing was always a childish fantasy, equal to the Easter Bunny fantasy.
Praying is talking to yourself. In my opinion it's a mental illness.
