The non-religious aren't sane

Reductionism is a very useful philosophy in science. It allows the scientist to make assumptions that simplify complex systems down to something understandable by a single human in a single lifetime. It allows engineers to then take that work and make practical inventions with it. But outside of science- when applied to cosmology, to religion, to the complex emotional and non material world of the human soul- reductionism fails because Occam's razor only works on simple systems, not complex ones. The human mind is too complex to be explained by materialism alone. And thus, atheists are insane.
