He didn't talk about the Bible. The Bible didn't even exist at that time yet.

Are you saying that the writings magically appeared? What scripture do you think the author was referring to? Where do you think the writings that were assembled into the book came from? They were circulating on their own, being changed, forged, and garbled for a few hundred years before the bible was assembled. If 2 Timothy was actually written by Paul (it wasn't but lets assume it was) this idea was circulating for centuries before the book was put together. You completely missed the point.

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."

Any book is the perfect book when you can just read something and agree with it perfectly and then all of the sudden, magically the things that don't make sense or that you don't agree with you suddenly DO agree with because they are mistranslated or misinterpreted and actually DO mean the very same thing that you DO actually believe....because that is what faith is. Denying all counter evidence, observations and arguments so that your belief that you create for yourself can be preserved.

It is quite literally the definition of self brainwashing.
