So we aren't made of atoms? That is what I said. QueenMUSE
made that comment about 'all atheists' so I'm sure that is
where the confusion comes in. My being atheist has nothing
to do if we are made of atoms or not. But since you do bring
it up, speaking of "God" I don't have to prove non-existing
entities don't exist. How does one know a 1 eyed 1 horned
flying purple people eater doesn't exist?

Evidence of existence lies on a person making the claim. One
cannot rationally believe everything their imagination or
friend's imagination conceives of.

The Christian god is easily disproved by definition. Given
no definition of god (well, a very wide one) it is absurd
beyond reason.

I'm not a cold all rational decision maker and don't claim
to be. I merely know we are made of atoms and that gods are
myths many people believe in. It is part of my hard-wired
programming to react on emotion in many instances, yet I
know this and do not deny it. I never look for a soul
because there is not one to be found. Things happen, the
reason is how not why.
