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 "Friendly Atheist" - What You Missed in Justice Sotomayor’s Eloquent Dissent in Trinity Lutheran

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2017/06/27/what-you-missed-in-justice-sotomayors-eloquent-dissent-in-trinity-lutheran/#disqus_thread

I have a subscription to the Wall Street Journal (I used to have an online subscription to the New York Times. Now for free I can read 10 NYTimes articles a month). At the Wall Street Journal there was only this one quote from Justice Sotomayor: "History shows that the Religion Clauses separate the public treasury from religious coffers as one measure to secure the kind of freedom of conscience that benefits both religion and government."
Most WSJ subscribers are Republicans. Unfortunately most Republicans are Christians. In Idiot America most Christians are theocrats. They are Establishment Clause deniers (not to mention evolution deniers). I think it's fair to say they're stupid assholes.
The WSJ article agreed with the theocrats. In the comments nobody defended what Justice Sotomayor wrote. Instead they attacked and insulted her.
I used to write comments at the WSJ but the harassment and the stupidity wore me out. Their brain damage can't be fixed. They're a waste of time.
