In his latest book, the author of God: The Failed Hypothesis draws on his double expertise in physics and philosophy to explain why atomism (which he calls one of the most successful scientific hypotheses ever devised) supports his conclusion that a deity does not exist. Dr. Victor Stenger describes how the atoms first conceptualized by ancient Greek philosophers can now be observed with scanning tunneling microscope. He argues that the total absence of empirical facts and theoretical arguments to support the existence of any component to reality other than atoms and the void provides proof beyond a reasonable doubt that such a reality does not exist. Closely argued; controversial.
