In science we trust

"Science is the true theology."
Thomas Paine
"Anything that we scientists can do to weaken the hold of religion should be done
and may in the end be our greatest contribution to civilization."
Steven Weinberg
"Science has done more for the development of Western civilization in
one hundred years than Christianity did in eighteen hundred."
John Burroughs
"Science has shown that the story of creation is a myth and the gods legendary."
Francisco Ferrer

"There is more religion in man's science than there is science in his religion."
Henry David Thoreau
"Religion was (is) always steps ahead of science; because religion lies and science can't."
M.F. Moonzajer
 "It is not possible to be intellectually honest and believe in gods.
And it is not possible to believe in gods and be a true scientist."
P.W. Atkin

"The ecclesiastical system is the deadly enemy of science."
Thomas Huxley
The Universe Not Made for Us: Great Carl Sagan clip


"Has science ever retreated? No! It is Catholicism which has always
retreated before her, and will always be forced to retreat."
Emile Zola 
"If the ignorance of nature gave birth to the gods,
knowledge of nature is destined to destroy it."

Arab Muslims were some of the best scientists, navigators,
architects and mathematicians in the world. Unfortunately they
have seemingly regressed for the past 700 years. To many Muslims,
the Koran, like the Bible, contains all the answers. Putting all of
your trust in ancient texts make you extremely lazy and ignorant.
"Science has proof without any certainty. Creationists have certainty without any proof."
Ashley Montagu




There exist about 10 million species in 2013.
It is estimated that there have been up to 4 billion.
Most species go extinct; that is a great designer, huh?
In regard to language, there are about 6,700 languages in 2013.
It is estimated that there have been as many as 100,000.

"The big difference between science and religion is found in the presence or absence
 of error correction mechanisms. Through error correction, science builds a continuing
body of knowledge that can be objectively tested and relied upon."
Darrel W. Ray
