IAN: Hay, we're making progress! Now you
need to show what in physics supports your
claim that atomism helps make predictions.

Can you name any physical attribute of any
thing, A, such as weight, size, velocity,
color, that is assigned to A free from
not-A. Since your so sure that such
non-holism exists, this should be
as easy knocking off one liners.
Just show one example of atomism.

So how about putting your money where
your keyboard is and back up your claim
with something more than another claim.
