Darwinism, the Religion of the New Atheists, is All About Reproduction

You know that whole “The Star of Bethlehem is Just Mythology” thing?

More Proof for Atheism!

Note too the resemblance between the doctor’s non-hallucinating hallucination and religious claims about angels — that completely proves that this is a delusion!
