1) Let's hypothesize that humans are imaginative, and similar to one another in this way everywhere. Part of what makes them human.
2) We observe that humans imagine vaguely-human super powerful or influential beings fairly commonly. In fact, even small children do this.
3) LOGIC: We reason that people are very similar to people. They might even BE people.
4) We observe that apart from human imagination, no trace of objective evidence has EVER been discovered (despite searches so dedicated they approach desperate) of any such entities.
5) LOGIC: We reason that imagination might be producing something imaginary. Being the product of imagination, it might even BE imaginary.
Next step: testing. Fairly exhaustive tests for the actual existence of imaginary entities have so far failed to produce anything of the sort. Another test: do those humans raised to believe in evidence and observation and NOT raised to believe in the imaginary, ALSO experience the same entities? Well, no, they don't.
