I was always under the impression that scientists were all athiests, simply because they believe in fact and not on the unknown. I read an article the other day stating that there were more religious scientists than athiests...that tripped me out!
I think athiests come from the POV that there is no proof, never has been and never will be. I think some people need some kind of proof to believe in something. The whole big bang theroy vs. evolution thing/adam and eve thing...
Be yourself, because the people that mind don't matter, and the people that matter don't mind.
