We invented gods and we invented religions

Bill Flavell: “There is only one reasonable conclusion; god plays no part in human belief—we do the all heavy lifting on our own. And that leads to a second conclusion, god does not want us to believe in him, or doesn’t care whether we do or not. But that conclusion cannot be right. If God has infinite love for us (or even a mild affection) he would care how we spend eternity and would be desperate to save us from eternal torture. Surely, that leaves only one conclusion available to us. God does not exist. We invented gods and we invented religions, and we pass them from generation to generation.”
