They say that man began as all life did, in a mystery yet unraveled but clearly marked in the story of the planet.

In the attempts to explain my origin, I have occasionally been told that I evolved, but this is not true.

I did not evolve over the eons. I was thrust into existence suddenly and without explanation,  gasping for air and bereft of a single memory.  I, the individual, cannot be thus placated by a tale of my origin; such stories satisfy only the needs held by the world around me, from whose perspective they are consistent.

I notice on my dashboard that a few people view this post every week. For those people I’d like to offer an explanation – at the time that I wrote this, I was thinking to myself “Who do the atheists think they are, using an atom as their logo? What’s that supposed to mean, huh?”

Since then I have stopped being a Christian, and although I still think that it’s a bit of a stretch to imply that scientific conclusions (certainly as represented by a picture of the atomic structure) are a reason to disbelieve, generally, in the existence of God, I understand why atheists might use a scientific symbol to represent the rejection of dogmatic or religious beliefs.
