Hey, there's no such thing as stupid questions. Don't judge. This is what one of my friends said the other day. (Outside of sodahead.)
He also said, "chemistry class is filled with a bunch of BS."

They do exist. An atom is the smallest particle of an element that can take part in a chemical reaction.

Maybe, maybe not. It's still a theory. The evidence points more towards them existing though.

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that
things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” (Hebrews 11:3)

“For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the
things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20)

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. … All things were made by Him;
and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:1, 3-4)


When God’s Word, the Bible, speaks it is never wrong, this includes scientific things. Mere man on the other hand often calls falsehoods, science. God’s Word commands us to avoid “… profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. …” (1 Timothy 6:20-21).

Hebrews 11:3 states that “… things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Here it is clearly speaking of the building blocks of the Universe. All visible matter consists of atoms, but unlike a molecule, a virus, or a bacteria, the atom ca...

Hebrews 11:3 states that “… things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Here it is clearly speaking of the building blocks of the Universe. All visible matter consists of atoms, but unlike a molecule, a virus, or a bacteria, the atom cannot be seen, even under an electron microscope.
They cannot be seen, but are known to exist from over a hundred years of experimentation. The atom is composed several invisible “things.” The atom is made up of a nucleus which consists of protons and neutrons which are surrounded by a cloud electrons. Electrons, muons and taus are types of leptons.
The protons and neutrons are made up of six types of quarks. Quarks and leptons are believed to be the two basic constituents of matter. These are the invisible “things” which make up the “things which are seen.”

The Lord Jesus Christ “… is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” (Colossians 1:15-17)

Creation demands a design, and a design demands a designer and deep down inside man knows it. “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.” (Romans 1:19-20)
God revealed to the Prophet Daniel that at “… the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” (Daniel 12:4) The discovery of the invisible atom and its components, and what its for is one of many signs that we are in “the time of the end” now. God is omniscient and knows the past, present and the future, and He know all true science. He is the one who created time, space, and matter and the one who set it all in motion.

For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:20)

“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” (1 John 5:7)

God’s Creation consists of time, space and matter. It is a trinity, not composed partly of space, partly of matter, and partly of time. “A trinity is not a trio or a triad, but a tri-unity, with each part comprising the whole, yet all three required to make the whole. Thus, the universe is all Space, all Time, and all Matter (including energy as a form of matter); in fact, many scientists speak of it as a Space-Time-Matter continuum.”4 Likewise all three components of the three parts of Creation are trinities:

Time consists past, present, and future. “The future is the unseen source of time, manifest moment-by-moment in the present and understood in the past.”5 Space is comprised of three dimensions, depth, width and height with each dimension permeating all space. “Matter is unseen, omnipresent energy, manifesting itself in various forms of measurable motion, then experienced in corresponding phenomena. For example, light e...

For example, light energy generates light waves, which are experienced in the seeing of light. Sound energy generates sound waves which we experience when we hear sound.”6 Note the trinity of the Creation again:

Time, Space and Matter:
1. Space: Length, Width and Height.
2. Time: Past, Present and Future.
3. Matter (Atoms): Energy, Motion and Phenomenon.

Genesis 1:1-5: “In the beginning (Time) God created the heaven (Space) and the earth (Matter which is made of Atoms). And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light (Subatomic Particles): and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day (Time).”

The triune building blocks of the Universe were completed on Day One of Creation.

Atom in Greek means cannot be cut. Most of what we call an atom is empty space. Energy is what is real in terms of a material world.

I think of consciousness as the ultimate reality.

Time, space, motion and distance ares ideas in your mind but not in the mind of God.

Perhaps a look thru a microscope would start him in the right direction.

I guess it depends on the sense in which the question is asked. In a way they don't exist because they're just basically forces acting on forces with nothing but lots and lots of space in between.

Molecules are made of things with lots of space between them... atoms are made of sub-atomic things with space between them... if you keep going there's really nothing there.

Well it's not a very good one. There's a ton of proof atoms exist... because a lot of thing happen that are consistent with that fact. From Brownian motion

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

to the fact that the screen you're looking at wouldn't work without the chemistry of atoms... and the quantum motion of sub-atomic particles. It works over and over just like the science based on the existence of atoms says it should.

Now tell us again what "wouldn't work" without simi-literate iron age goat herder's myths?

What I'm wondering is why didn't Jesus spend a couple of minutes explaining how to ,with stuff they had already-- make a simple antiseptic. He would have saved millions of lives and healed way more people than putting evil spirits into pigs like a witch doctor. It's funny how there's not a single thing in the Bible that a middle eastern from back then couldn't have made up.

That picture is of hemocytes, not atoms. An atom is smaller than the wavelength of any medium (e.g., light, electrons, etc.) used to detect them. Thus far, all we've ever been able to capture is quantum field effect--i.e., the 'trail' left behind various sub-atomic particles as they zip through relative nothingness.
