How could one put faith in atoms when even they might decay into useless but more simple and stable particles? As sturdy as the physical reality surrounding us seems it might be flimsy in the grand scheme of things. But maybe atoms don't decay and the universe is eternal, somehow never running out of energy sources. In that case I would respect materialism even more. Maybe God is eternal, all knowing, and all powerful. There is comfort in thinking that there is an all-knowing eternal being, for in that case no information (past, present, future, legal, or illegal) is ever lost. Each human's consciousness, memories, and experiences can be thought of as individuals units of information, for example.

It is disingenuous at best and a lie at worst to presume the absolute nature of reality or the truth of the future (especially when the future in question is highly speculative). If I remember correctly Kant said to not lie, for if you lie you take responsibility for reality.
