<quoted text>What is so hard to understand? He is saying that the BELIEF in god(s) is real not that there is an actual god(s).
On the contrary he has stated many times that belief makes the god real.
"And, for the record, I've already proven CONCLUSIVELY that gods did exist, particularly in Egypt (which is a REAL place) where they were known as Pharaohs."
But I understand they existed in title and as a label.
But he purposes they were really gods because of their cult following made them so.
