And how can everything fit into one "singularity"? We know even an atom has a certain width.

I am atheist, by the way.
I agree 100%. The Big Bang theory is almost as simplistic as creationism is, and therefore about as likely to be true. I'm pretty sure that the origin of the universe, is something a bit more complicated.

On the earth, the continents are expanding too, but nobody is proposing that they magically popped out of one small super-dense singularity in a Big Bang.

How do you explain the Cosmic Microwave Background? I've never heard it described as being magic...so how do you account for it?

The Big Bang Theory is nothing like creationism...which is nothing more than pseudoscience nonsense and is not a Scientific Theory.
