Spirit Adorno XIII, 217/18
Spirit/Reality/Epicurus/Adorno: the spirit is - as it is explicitly stated in Epicurus - unnecessary in the things. The atoms, however, are real and not purely mathematical determinations.

XIII 220/221
Atheism/Epicurus/Adorno: yet Epicurus is not an atheist, or in any case his explicit doctrine does not deny the gods. He then accepted infinitely many and by no means only the official deities of the national religion. It has been speculated about whether it is perhaps a kind of camouflage. Even after the death of Alexander, Aristotle was still threatening an asebeia process, so that Aristotle went into emigration and died there.
