Words of Comfort: Senseless?

"[As an atheist] do you really think I am senseless?"

Sir Isaac Newton (the Father of Science) used the word "senseless" when speaking of atheism. After speaking with thousands who believe as you do, I have come to the conclusion that atheism is more than senseless. For example, how about you make me a hummingbird, from nothing? You had better make two, because you will need both male and female for them to be able to reproduce. You could start by making a tiny brain, matching eyes, a heart, a liver, two legs, and matching wings that flap faster than the eye can see. You will also need to put “life” into the bird, so that the inanimate machine you have made can think for itself and fly. Isn’t it true that you don’t have a clue where to begin? Yet, as an atheist, you believe (and so does Richard Dawkins) that nothing made it from nothing. That is both scientifically impossible and ludicrous. To be honest, I'm intellectually embarrassed to be of the same species as those who believe such things.
