~Petronius Arbiter, Satyricon
This I guess is the argument that the idea of god(s) is man-made and was created because man had many fears of the unknown (and still do).
Agree or not?

When you are truly connected to God, there isn't fear. Religious has been used to understand the universe but this is only one aspect of faith, when you study people who were really spiritually connected, there is peace about them not fear.

I have seen this said many times about pagan gods, but if it gets said about the god of Abraham it is considered offencive (not talking about women here just things I have heard irl). It often makes me shake my head that they can attach this to gods that others still believe in and think it is fine to say but than get offended and attack you if you try to even mention that if it can be applied to pagan gods it can be applied to their god as well.
As for the saying itself I think some find god out of fear I think others find god out of need and others out of love. It will be different reasoning for everyone. The real question is if they are truthful to themselves about that reason.
