What is Atomism?
The actual theory is that prior to the existence of atoms nothing exists but an empty very dense void. But voids have to be filled as they can not contain complete nothingness, something has to exist. This meant the very material of the void split asunder (the big bang) into matter and antimatter. Both products and their energies can be seen in the universe anti matter and dark energy are attracting interest within the science community.
When matter meets antimatter it creates a black-holes very dense voids of nothingness the onset of the death of the universe that later leads to a rebirth.
Atoms are unique building blocks that mix and intermix within the natural rules set by the limitations and nature of which we call space (non dense void) and the original big bang the implosion and explosion at the birth of a new universe. The electrons and protons are the basics of life within the universe.
Scientist have theorized evolution from proof found on this planet we occupy as carbon based bipeds but have yet to really understand why life exists. Its actual very simple but is made complex by the way atoms behave within the universe. The constant mixing of atoms caused by the violent nature of the natural rules of the universe and a set of the correct conditions caused atoms to form into a simple life form the single cell that made it possible for atoms to live off other atoms to then create even more complex carbon based life forms. The new life forms created had the pattern set at the birth of the universe the universe had to exist, these life forms had to exist and survive it has been a natural program since day one. The new life forms had the ability to create more of their own kind and to adapt into more efficient species ever since its been a race to the top of the ladder to create an ultimate species.
We humans are the total product at this stage of time the perfect host for our building blocks. We as intelligent beings are only important to the atoms that are for ever seeking other useful atoms to blend with to build and repair and help the carbon entity the host, exist so it can forage for more atoms. Prior built hosts had been stationary and could only seek required atoms locally and seeding new hosts to feed else where, were geared to nature, wind water or roots etc. Of course these methods improved with the very mobile host of who became also a method of seeding.
This of course answers the question why we are here its simply answered with to create new host for the universes building blocks.
Oh your soul? That's imaginary as with super beings and a heaven after death. However your atoms will be around possibly for billions of year more, yep that's the afterlife. You are just a walking moving coral with a brain.
As the originator of this theory I have also invented some new words:
Atomism: A belief in atoms being the creators of the universe and life.
Atomists: Atheist follower of the belief in Atomism
