The beauty of words is that we can combine conceptually contradicting words together. Examples: calling bald a hair colour, vacuum a thing and atheism a belief.
Another annoying feature is to associate features to imaginary objects as if it were true: god is eternal. Since god is imaginary, it can have any feature as you like including it is coloured green!
Reality requires evidence. Anything which excludes itself from this fundamental reality check is imaginary. It may serve some purposes, just like fictions serve to illustrate, inspire and amuse. Taking the imaginary god seriously and acting like god is real is NOT reality. I am very puzzled why so many seemingly intelligent people would be religious.
