Humans create something that we call "reality." A whole world that exists and if we can't see it, touch it, feel it, or understand it, it's not "real." That is where religion comes in. Religion sets up a whole new reality based on things we can't feel with any of our senses and which is based on that intangible thing called "faith." Yet even our "reality" is not quite as we seem to think. Look at a chair. You see something solid, you feel something solid. All of your senses tell you that that chair is there and that it is "real." But if you went down to the tiny atoms that make up that chair, the protons and neutrons and electrons, and all that empty, empty space, with nothing there, you'd go, it's not solid, it's not real, it's not possible. And yet there it is, we can feel it with every sense. We have senses that we are not even aware of that tell us that g-d is there, even if we can't feel it with our everyday senses. People will go into denial and say there is no such thing, but when push comes to shove, when you think you are abut to die. ALL of your senses are at thier height, and you say there IS a g-d.
