    of the entire realm of possible atheists in a simple blog post?
    Well yes, if you're going to make claims about a group, I expect you to demonstrate either that you've done your research, or properly qualify your statements. Thus far, you have done neither.
    There have not been 3,000 years of materialist inquiry.
    Atomism goes back to at least the 6th century BCE, in two different cultures. That has included dozens of philosophers who openly and not-so-openly considered the non-existence of god. You don't get to dismiss those aspects of a philosophy that are least convenient to your argument. That is, after all, a major criticism of modern atheism and what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
    Perhaps you just wanted to take umbrage more than actually talk about the subject.
    If you want to talk, you can show up to my congregation, members of which wrote the first humanist manifesto after all. And if I see your face perhaps a half-dozen times, I might feel comfortable with that discussion.

    But until then, I have no need to prove anything to you, and no way to prove it, since I only have testimony of things I witnessed, and that's not exactly communicable.
