...any characterization of reality as to whether it is personal or impersonal at its root, then I guess you see both as live options.
Here's the thing about leprechauns, fairies, etc.: you and I have never experienced them.
On the other hand, you and I have both experienced person, mind, love in our lives; and we have both experienced gravity, electromagnetism, and other laws of nature in our lives.
The question isn't about things we've never experienced; it's a question of which of these categories is pre-eminent, or antecedent to the other.
I am almost positive you will say person, mind, love are derivative from laws of nature; I see the opposite as more plausible: laws of nature are derivatives of Person, Mind, Love.
This isn't about things we haven't even come across, or even about a particular god or particular set of laws of nature at this level. It's about which things we have experienced are more fundamental.
