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

Religion is brain damage.

PZ has recently been publishing some excellent posts. They are excellent because PZ didn't write them. The posts are being written by several people who explain why and how they were able to throw out their religious indoctrination. Eventually there will be more than 400 of these posts.

They are all here: http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/category/testimonial/

I wrote a comment at Why I am an atheist – Kristen G:

My new favorite quote: Religion is brain damage.

Thank you Ms. Kristen G.

From a previous comment: Parts of the US sound as backward as Somalia or Afghanistan.

All of Idiot America is infested with idiots, but in some states the religious insanity is completely out of control, including Florida where I live and the rest of the Deep South from the east coast to Texas.

Even up north there’s a never ending Christian war against science education. For example the Dover trial was in Pennsylvania.

Congratulations to Ms. Kristen for escaping this insane asylum.

There's a bit more people who visit PZ's blog than my blog. I have good reasons to believe PZ gets several dozen visitors a minute which is about what I get in one year.

By the way the world famous PZ actually wrote a comment at one of my off-topic posts. He wrote about my dream to be a better leech at How to be wealthy.
