Gods, wizzards and witches

Of course, we don’t have to believe along with the believers that Gods, wizzards and witches are real entities. It’s pretty clear that neither they nor their working can be perceived polymodally, and thus they cannot be proven real—so we can at the least remain agnosticist (no need for militant atheism). Gods, wizzards, and witches, and their doings are theoretical entities—much like the selfishness of our genes is.
Yet, thus, we can understand their secondary, nominal lives! If sufficient numbers of people believe in them and their powers in sufficient measure, they will make some of that real, like true Munchausens pulling themselves out of the morass by their wiggs.
