    This is not a question about physics. To get an appropriate answer from physicists you first have to define what's "materialism" in a clear empirically and objectively testable way. It's hard to find such clear definitions of almost all philosophical "isms". That's why pondering such questions usually doesn't lead to much valuable.

    And with that point made, we can close this thread.
