An Eternal Atheist Strawman

So, Christians. Here's some advice: if you can eventually come around to the fact that atheism is neither a religion, philosophy, or worldview, then perhaps you will stop embarassing yourselves by asking questions like:

"What has atheism ever done for science?"

What has the lack of belief in magical elves ever done for science? What has the lack of belief in unicorns ever done for science? What has the lack of belief in the Loch Ness monster ever done for science?

Although, one might argue that the only way science can produce results is by observing and testing the natural world, therefore making science itself an atheistic enterprise. So then the question becomes even more ridiculous because it's tantamount to asking: "What has science ever done for science?"
