Your song and dance (another term for "narrative") is a tale of human beings having been made by something greater than themselves and a tale of atheism as an alternative version of how human beings were made. It's as if all you care about is humans and how they were made. Apparently you believe humans have some great significance in the scheme of things.

First of all, that's your personal take on atheism, and if you try to force your tale beyond those bounds, you're lying about the justification for having done so. Evolutionary biology is not a tale of causes, and atheism is not a tale of human origins. Biology covers far more than you give it credit for, and atheism covers far less than your claim about narratives of origins.

You're stuck with the theist garbage of creationism, which is an ideology. Atheism doesn't posit that a creator is necessary to placing human beings in their context as some small part of the universe. If you're unhappy that some people won't accept a tale of creation by a higher power, cry me a river.
