As an Epicurean, Lucretius argues with philosophic clarity and poetic power "against fear of the gods by demonstrating through observations and logical argument that the operations of the world can be accounted for entirely in terms of natural phenomena, the regular but purposeless motions and interactions of tiny atoms in empty space, instead of in terms of the will of the gods." (First century B.C.)
