You seemed to infer that earlier on, so I was basically repeating Moomin's response to what you said. If that's not what you meant then never mind.

Original point still stands, un-assailed:

"That it is far, far more likely we humankind merely conjured all the deities, gods, devils, demons, angels and associated characters and events than is likely they actually exist as fabled, is lost on many and seems incapable of computing for some."

This is equivalent to you trying to argue other intelligent live in our universe is impossible despite the trillions of stars in the skies. I'm not saying it exists, I am saying 'do the math, calculate the odds.'

There's no faith involved in it.

How are you calculating your odds, to say that it is "far, far, more likely"? To me, your analogy regarding intelligent life is more applicable to your argument.
