The funny thing is that the stories about a supposed supreme being put me in mind of the song "Big Rock Candy Mountain", because that captures intentionally something fundamental which is in a lot of those other stories. The song is about a hobo's paradise. In that version of paradise, nothing has really changed, except that everything individually is better: the hobo in question doesn't even stop getting bitten by bulldogs, it's just that in paradise they have rubber teeth. I like the song because I think it really captures how people think and dream. But because it focusses on a hobo, it's more obviously and intentionally absurd.
I never considered the religious implications of that song. Thanks for giving me that, friend.
