Democritus and Us

Democritus (400 BC) said that Creation consists of “atoms and the void.”  He was right, but how does God get taste and smell, color, hot and cold, night and day out of that?  There’s still plenty of room for scientists.  We make the most of it.

Creation is still a marvel—a spiritual being making material (dirt) and non-material (electrons) things out of nothing.  That’s a half-step from the purely spiritual.  And then the butterflies, birds, buffalos, elephants, whales, what more can we ask for?

I think Democritus was guessing, and we probably still have to guess somewhat.  We don’t know everything.  Have you had some dark matter with your quantum quarks lately?
