Yup.<quoted text>I just checked, I'm on pg 47. The neatest thing is how much effort has been put into understanding the atom over the past 2500 years. A man named Democritus, in 440 BC, thought about subdivision in matter. He thought if he could cut a clay pot in half, then in half again, then again and again if he could do that forever. He figured that was unconceivable and eventually you'd come to a tiny grain so small, it could not be cut anymore. He used a Greek word, a-tomos, "uncuttable" which came to be known as atoms.
Interesting, especially for a dude to think of that so long ago.
But subsequently found to be untrue.
