Never insulted, everybody is entitled to his/her own opinions and beliefs.

Although I don't follow the same belief, I do support your logic there.  Man
very well may have simply created a god to worship.  Is it possible to
prove either?  I've never found any proof for either view.  But have made
a choice, in faith, without proof, to follow what I believe.  Did we create
this perfect being only in our imagination?  I can't answer that, nor can
anybody else.  I think I've totally forgot my point in writing this
My point was only to say that there was no offence taken and I hope
given here.  I much enjoy hearing others share their thoughts on this

I would hope the same.  And you shouldn't have to explain yourself to
anyone, but these, as I stated before, make for interesting conversation
IMO :-)

Okay..I'm done rambling
