God only exists in your mind... God (in the traditional sense) is an anthropomorphic paradigm of the universe and a catch-all explanation for all that the human mind is yet to comprehend. (EclecticSeeker)

exactly...

did God exist before man?

early people needed reason or logic to explain their world. God was this reason or logic. you could say that God is man-made.

I personally think that our senses (ie. chemical changes that stimulate electrical impulses) are limited and, therefore, are false interpretations of reality. But because they are interpretations of reality, the true aspects of objective reality are "embedded" or encoded into our perception.

For instance, atoms can never be seen through a microscope because they are smaller than the smallest wavelength of visible light. We can "percieve" them, however, through the use of X-ray (small wavelength) imaging and other techniques.

My point being, we simply must use indirect methods to see beyond "reality". I think that this is the way we will ultimately be able to percieve objective reality.
