The Almighty Atom

Everything including me,
Is made of atoms that came to be,
In the explosion of a star,
Light years away from where we are,
And then these atoms pulled together,
And formed our planet and the British weather,
And eventually, the human brain,
Which despite obsessing about the rain,
Could probe creation using maths,
And work out a theorem in the bath!
So did the atoms somehow decide,
That they alone, could never provide,
Any answers for any questions asked,
So they made an intelligence which could be tasked,
With providing answers as to how,
Atoms came to take their bow?
