Atheist – “De-invent” God

Carl Sagan suggests that there is nothing unusual about Earth, that it’s just an average, unassuming rock that’s spinning mindlessly around an unremarkable star in a run-of-the-mill galaxy – “a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.”? If Sagan is right, we as humans have created the idea of God in order to get others to be good and conform and to limp through what otherwise is a very lonely experience. Freud and other atheists have asserted that Christians have created the idea of God because we need something that helps to explain life. God was made in the image of man. But if Freud and Sagan are wrong, could it be possible that in reality it is the non-believer (atheist) who has de-invented God because something deep inside them tells them that He already exists and that He has a claim over their life.
