Anticipation, maybe you should read TyrantSong's post which my own was a reply to. The way I read it, it's not about solipsism, it's about people's minds creating something which is real in an external sense, not just in your mind.

TyrantSong suggested humans might be capable of creating God. Solipsism wasn't mentioned.

Does that look like I'm responding to a post about solipsism?
