"Creator" in the Declaration of Independence is Reality, Not God

Some people think the word "Creator" in the Declaration of Independence refers to god. I do not. We are created by nature, i.e., reality.

Why didn't the founding fathers of our country simply say god if they meant god? Instead, they chose concrete words that are forever true here in the reality in which we live rather than lowering this important document into the mythological dungeon of mysticism. The founding fathers chose reality over superstition.

As an atheist, I believe we ARE endowed by our creator with unalienable rights and the creator of humanity is reality, also known as the natural universe.

David,
Read Ismael by Daniel Quinn?
If not, ...do so soon.
Dispells cultural myths we live under, (Genesis, basically tells us we are above laws of nature because we were "created"? Wa-huh?
problem is we believe it more strongly today than at any other time.
