Black holes, the vast spectrum of existence(not necessarily in size, but contract), ameba, the things we don't know, infinitely small things, the theory of bubble, or parallel universe(don't really believe).

You can look yourself squarely in the eye in a mirror and observe infinity. You can take a picture of it. Just because we can't necessarily perceive it doesn't mean it isn't a reality.

In order of appearance:
Nope. Nope. Wrong again. How can we observe the things we don't know? Insofar as I am aware there is no thing in the universe which can be accurately described as infinitely small. What does economic theory have to do with this? Why include it if you don't believe in them?

I am dubious of the proposition that the space between my mirror and I is infinite, or that I could take a picture of something without end. At best I could take a picture of part of it...
I will concede that, strictly speaking, not being able to perceive something does not mean it isn't a part of reality. But if we follow that logic, the entire universe outside of your range of perception is composed entirely of densely-packed Hitlers.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

@ jason_delisle

Here's an essay written by an atheist mother who lost her child only 8 hours after her premature birth. Might give you a little more insight into grieving and coping through the eyes of those who don't (or can't) rely upon magical thinking, especially when such thoughts put one in the social minority.

Not one of those things is infinite. How do you know something is infinite if you can't perceive it?

Please provide an example of an infinitely small thing.
