An imaginary friend. A construct of our ego, desperate to believe that someone is watching, someone actually cares about our existence. God is the personification of the real forces of creation: the stardust, the light, the gravity. God is the excuse to sin: it will all be forgiven, because after all, we are His children. None of us are fully formed, fully thinking adults, and we’re allowed to destroy Earth, other life forms, and each other. We are allowed to destroy the Creation, because we are imperfect sinners. But the Creation is actually the real God. WE are the real God, and the only God, responsible and accountable for our actions. Responsible for climate change and the 6th Mass Extinction. All adults in the room please rise up.
