    Ditto.

    Consider.

    Are most ideologies not built on the carrot stick type of ideology/theology/secular law?

    In our hierarchical world dualistic universe, I see this as normal and desirable.

    Mitigating the harm our carrot and stick ideologies poorly is why we have been gifted with 5,000 years of war history from our vile religions.

    We are getting better quickly though as modernization kills the gids.

    That's probably the correct answer, that the gods are just the stories. Unlike other objects in stories that have an actual physical presence outside the story, without the stories about gods there aren't actually any gods, and never have been.
    Your logical fallacy is noted.

    Using the word "likely never" corrects that.

    Remember the atheist bus signs? Rhetorical.

    We agree on the supernatural idiocies, but to just throw out your truth, --- would have many ignore the harm that those imaginary gods are still doing, --- with their homophobic and misogynous teachings to otherwise moral children.

    There out to be a law against preaching against the law of the land.
