“Never trust atoms. They make up everything” (science joke)

“Never trust atoms. They make up everything’ is a science pun that has been printed on many images. A riddle was posted on Reddit—Jokes on December 26, 2012:
Q: Why can’t you trust atoms?
A: Because they make up everything.

Wikipedia: Atom
An atom is the smallest constituent unit of ordinary matter that has the properties of a chemical element. Every solid, liquid, gas, and plasma is composed of neutral or ionized atoms. Atoms are very small; typical sizes are around 100 picometers (a ten-billionth of a meter, in the short scale).
Atoms are small enough that attempting to predict their behavior using classical physics – as if they were billiard balls, for example – gives noticeably incorrect predictions due to quantum effects. Through the development of physics, atomic models have incorporated quantum principles to better explain and predict the behavior.
