This atheist thinks that science requires assuming there was no Creator, and that life is understandable by man. She is not going by the evidence, that life only comes from previous life. Science is a religion for her. This is in the best tradition of the devil worshipper Jack Parsons, founder of JPL, and his motivation to be his own god, overcoming all obstacles to get a rocket into space.
A TV documentary on Jack Parsons, who created Jet Propulsion Laboratory. It is odd that it took an open devil worshipper to provide the motivation to get a rocket into space.
