Signs you may already be an atheist

I am not one to randomly quote from a book I have never read, but this quote [found by Kottke](http://kottke.org/11/12/exact-nonsense) from Penn Jillette’s [God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales](http://www.amazon.com/God-No-Already-Atheist-Magical/dp/145161036X) made me stop in my tracks for its brilliant obviousness, and for the fact that no matter what you believe, I don’t think one could possibly refute it.
> There is no god and that’s the simple truth. If every trace of any single religion died out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again.
