What would we talk about, if no one had invented god?

A famous old seminary story went along the lines of an old, gentle priest bitterly complaining about atheists to a younger, somewhat shocked priest. "The thing I can't stand about atheists is that they always want to talk about God."

Well for one thing I'd be working in the garden, as my partner wants, instead of typing on this keyboard. Thank god for God!

Always something to talk about. Humans are a chatty bunch with or without god.
