I have been told many times by atheists that “God is a human construct”. Most recently, here:
GOD is just a myth, like every OTHER construct of man.
Well, not all “constructs of man” are myths. Men (and women, to be politically correct) come up with many ideas, not just myths. And I readily agree that God is one of such ideas.
People do not believe in things. People believe in ideas. And yes, ideas are immaterial, cannot be touched, seen, smelled, felt in any way. Well, people can read an idea, but what they see are signs or images. When people say they heard an idea, they actually heard sounds. They could be words, music, or white noise.
So, it does not bother me at all that “God is a human construct”. So is everything else for which we can find a word.
