Not when the denial of reality is about something as metaphysical as God, in fact, it can not even be said to be a denial of reality as it's an unanswerable question to begin with

As I've already attempted to demonstrate people's interpretation of what God wants from them is conveniently the beliefs their culture already gave them
All holy texts are such a mash of contradictory ideas (as you would expect) that you can justify a multitude of beliefs, often contradictory, with the same book
Just another marketing ploy
