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 an atheist asked Christians. Even though I don't have the Christian disease I answered some of the questions.

"Since I could take anything, true or false, based on faith or presupposing it, it can't be a reasonable pathway to truth or god."
A big part of religious brainwashing (aka child abuse) is this idea repeated thousands of times: "You must have faith."
In other words you must believe any idiotic fantasy that makes you feel good even if it has not one shred of evidence.
A biologist at the University of Minnesota had something to say about 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
"Without god there is no morality."
That's ridiculous because I never met a Christian who had any moral values.
Normal people, aka atheists, have a brain so they can figure things out. It's everyone's best interest to be civilized. I don't need a magic god fairy to figure that out. This is not rocket science.
"God is revealing himself to you. You just aren't looking/are denying him."
The only possible explanation for this idea is brain damage.
