Atoms ordering themselves?

Book One - the Knowledge of God the Creator
Chapter 5 - Knowledge of God shines forth in the fashioning of the universe and the continuing government of it
Section 1-10 - God manifested in his created works
Section 4 - But man turns ungratefully against God
Man sees his excellencies, and ascribes them to nature instead of God.
If we are just atoms, as Epicurus says, let him tell us what group of atoms tells the body to cook, eat, digest, etc.

Section 5 - the confusion of creature with Creator
The soul transcends the body. What good does astronomy do the body?
The universe can't create itself; it is animated by a Creator.
Nature is the order prescribed by God.
