Dawkins said it best when he asserted that religion is a mental virus. And if you haven’t read the latest *shocking* development….children not indoctrinated exposed to religion differ in happiness, mental health, and their grasp of reality. Religious fundamentalism/indoctrination and creationism is child abuse.

“The purpose of education is not to validate ignorance, but to overcome it." — Lawrence Krauss

Alan Turing is my favorite scientist ever.
Most people, at least in the United States, have no idea who he is, but he founded computer science and basically won WWII by cracking the Nazi enigma code. He’s literally the most badass human to ever have lived. And now, Benedict Cumberbatch is playing him in a new movie Imitation Game. You know why you haven’t heard of him before?
In a time when being gay was illegal, police arrested Turing on charges of homosexuality. He was given a choice between chemical castration and life imprisonment, and he was discredited in every sense of the word - given no credit for the findings of a “mad man”.
One of the most important men involved in WWII, the father of computer science, and a generationally-defining genius isn’t remembered in history books - because he was found to be gay, sentenced to chemical castration, and resigned to suicide. He killed himself by eating an apple laced with arsenic.
That’s where Apple got its name and original logo from.
Alan Turing, the British badass who basically saved the world.
THIS MOVIE HAS TO COME OUT YESTERDAY.
