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 somebody wrote at today's Calvin & Hobbes

It is always so very sad to see how LARGE and VOCAL the anti-science attitudes are in the population. Global warming is very, very well supported from a myriad of scientific studies and research reports. The same is true for ideas of evolution. The largest preponderance of studies and reports supports the tenets of evolutionary theory.
The population that is so virulently anti-science has an unfortunate lack of understanding of the science process…. namely that nothing is ever proven 100% in science. It is a concept of thinking that is based upon probabilities. When 95+% of research studies provide statistically relevant data in support of a particular question, it is considered extremely well supported.
This was my reply:
Well done what you wrote. America is infested with science deniers. Evolution and global warming makes them cry.
