You propose a dichotomy that is false. Yes, they are real-existent entities, but they are not classical entities with definite positions and other definite properties. Instead, their properties are probabilistic.<quoted text>
So reality is a bunch of fuzzy probabilities, and not real pre-existing thingies.
Wow! Those Topix atheists are pretty sharp dudes for betting on that horse.
Yessiree. That explains creation better than anything.
And this has NOTHING to do with atheism. It is simply modern physics. The universe is inherently probabilistic. We know that by a variety of methods, including some that manage to exclude *any* local, causal theory. If your intuition can't handle that, then the problem is with your intuition, not with the reality.
