All statements about gods are justifications of norms independent of warranty. Gods are merely an anthropomorphic pedagogically argumentative device for crossing generational, familial, and clan, tribe and national boundaries, allowing decidability across preferences, values, relations, and frames. You use the term ‘right or wrong’ or ‘moral or immoral’ or ‘true or false’ for the same reasons. Very few of us use purely operational, empirical, and logical frames.
