That's right. My understanding is that tribes passed through a period in
their development when they had physical totems for gods. When a strong
tribe wanted to dominate a weaker one, they would physically capture
their totem god, and charge for its safekeeping.
One day, the god-stealers came across a tribe that had no
totems. When asked where their god was, they said, "he is everywhere and
in everything, etc." The main point was, they had no totem god to lose
and hence could not be dominated through its theft.
That is why Moses got so angry about the golden calf. He knew it
would be captured by stronger tribes and his group would go back into
So when the big bang types talk about God, they are talking about
an entity that was invented by humans for now outdated purposes.
