Richard,

A slight paraphrase of what you said!

For example, space is a very useful concept. But it is likely that space, as most people think of it, does not actually exist. It's all a mental construct. In this regard the use of the word god may be like the use of the word particle. It a convenient way to explain how the tiger got its stripes.

So is it true that anything exists? It's true that the concept exists. But of course concepts are subjective. So it seems that everything is subjective.

Have fun -- Dick
