An atom consists of a neucleuos surrounded by electons. It is mostly "nothing", however, what we percieve is a manifestation of the electical charge of the electron shell[s]. When you look at a evergreen tree what the retina "sees" is the light that is not absorbed [green wavelength] and reflected from the tree. So, paradoxically, the evergreen is anything but green, in a real sense. What the retina perceives are photons, which have mass, yet, possess a wave function which would seem to suggest that they are a part of a dimensionality that is foriegn to ours. I bring this up to point out that a case for the existence of higher dimensions [albeit by inference] can be readily made using pure science. ------------- So... photons have mass properties (photoelectric effect-collision) as well as wave properties associated with light. It's also known that all mass have wave properties [de Broglie] in addition to mass properties. Call me slow... but how does this point to the existence of god? These are simply inherent properties of matter and light. Or is this simply a "things aren't what they seem" argument?

There you go... i set you up. Merry Christmas. (insert counter argument here) :o)
