Atheism alone is a rotting corpse. I substitute art and nature for God - the grandeur of man and the vast mystery of the universe.

NASA's Hubble "Deep Field" above portrays not stars - almost every point of light is a distant galaxy. If the Deep Field image itself is sublime, how much more impressive is it that we as humans can comprehend it?

Compare Coreggio's "Jupiter and Io," 1532, left with that of NASA's 2001 Cassini Probe, with the amber-colored Io and the white Europa in Transit across the face of Jupiter, right. There is no separating the "mystery of the universe" from the "grandeur of man" who surveys it.
