Human not equal clay + higher power 4
A rendition of discernment, first pointed out by Alfred Lotka (1925), that chemically speaking, according to elemental composition, humans, as CHNOPS+20 entities, are not made of "clay", which is a AlSiO+6 type of matter, and that the clay creation myth of humans is but ancient mythological "poetry", i.e. religio-mythology.
In god disproofs, aluminum disproof, or "aluminum proof that that god does not exist", refers conflicting "fact" that god, supernaturally speaking, said, as told to the prophets Moses, in the Bible, and Muhammad, in the Quran, that he made humans out of clay (see: clay creation myth), which is a substance comprised predominately of the element aluminum Al, but that humans, according to modern mass composition analyses, are NOT made of aluminum. The discrepancy proves that god does not exist.

In 1925, Alfred Lotka, in his Elements of Physical Biology, was to first to point out that, chemically-speaking, humans do not have the same elemental composition of clay, and that the clay creation origin of humans is but a poetical fancy; specifically:

“On the whole it may be said the living organisms are composed of comparatively rare elements. We are, indeed, earth-born, but yet not altogether common clay. Indeed, taken literally the expression "common clay," as applied to man, is an extreme case of poetic license; for aluminum and silicon the chief constituents of clay, and taking second and third place in rank of abundance among the components of the earth's crust, are both present only in traces in the human body.”

Lotka, in short, gave the first so-called “aluminum disproof”, of the various disproofs of the existence of god, i.e. in indirect reference to the clay creation myth of humans. This, in short, is indirect implicit Bible debunking, wherein he relegates the creation of humans according to Genesis (or Heliopolis creation myth) as being but a form of poetry.

That god said, as recorded in the Bible (Gen 2:7) and the Quran (Surah 15:26), among other places, that he created man from clay or a mixture of clay (“Adam” is Hebrew for clay) and divine breath or spirit (Eve is Hebrew for breath or spirit), and that he created "plant life" on the third day of creation, "animal life" on the fifth day of creation, and "human life" on the sixth day of creation. God also gave this clay + spirit made human soul. The substance clay (Ѻ) is a naturally occurring aluminum silicate (Al2(SiO3)3,) composed primarily of fine-grained minerals, including: Andalusite (Al2SiO5), Sillimanite (Al2SiO5), and Kyanite (Al2SiO5).

The models of human according to god, as compared to a human according to science, are compared below:

God’s view -- Science’s view
Humanf{Al, Si, O} + life + spirit + soul
powered f{CHNOPS+20} elements

The clay creation myth (god's view) as compared to the human free energy of formation model (science's view). This proves that god does not exist.

In 2014, Libb Thims, independent of Lotka, began employing the aluminum disproof in dialogue with theists, as a tool to falter their "god complex" belief system, e.g. see: 7 Jul 2014 Beg-Thims dialogue (comment #10); then on 6 Jan 2015, by Libb Thims (V:5:40-6:05), as an effective disproof of the existence of god.
