I agree with the heretics. The god they so despise does not exist—

—a god who peers through the clouds at a world he sometime made from clay, and interferes with it from his heavens as a child plays in the sand . . .

Such a god is no more than another human toy. You have a house, a car, a job, a spouse, and children. So you must also have a god. And you create one in your image.

G‑d is not a construct of the human mind. G‑d is not an idea. G‑d is the reality in which we stand.
