    The sky is natural. Except to our primitive ancestors, “God” is supernatural. Nobody thinks he’s natural anymore, except for confused atheists who call themselves pantheists. So, those believing in “God” aren’t labeling physical matter “God” anymore. Get it? Do you understand the point I’m trying to make?


It doesn't matter whether you're assigning supernatural qualities to a physical object or an abstract concept. It's still magical thinking not based in an objective reality.

The rock theist would say 'Ah, only the rocks physical form is natural. It's divine qualities are supernatural'. In just the way Christians 'explain' Jesus, right? Of the same substance as god, but in human form.

Human but divine. Mineral but divine.

The magical thinking is the same.
