Imaginary god.. relic of the ancients

Its an interesting point that the Buddhist 'spiritual philosophy' developed without ever imagining a supernatural god-creator into it when all the other religions seemed to find it applicable to base the source of their scriptures on a deity. Seems Sid Gautama was very realistic and wise to avoid the god-creator concept in order to keep things a little simpler (Occam's razor comes to mind..). Wisdom of the scriptures- if it has not been corrupted and tampered with as Christian scripture in particular has a big problem apparently- can be of value in setting guidelines for a human moral standard and making laws of the land. But the god-creator concept is a relic of the past that will eventually phase out.. thanks to the expanding concept of atheism and to the people who work hard to make this happen.

Sid Gautama is a sort of hero to me. Wish I had the time to expand on my inner self as he did.
