God as subjective experience

In part One of his criticism of The God Delusion at huffingtonpost.com, Deepak Chopra makes the case that science can’t explain subjective experience.

For thousands of years human beings have been obsessed by beauty, truth, love, honor, altruism, courage, social relationships, art, and God. They all go together as subjective experiences, and it’s a straw man to set God up as the delusion. If he is, then so is truth itself or beauty itself. God stands for the perfection of both, and even if you think truth and beauty (along with love, justice, forgiveness, compassion, and other divine qualities) can never be perfect, to say that they are fantasies makes no sense.

I am not sure if he is suggesting that God is just a subjective experience or if beauty and love exist, God must exist. No doubt, in part two, he’ll explain how all this relates to whether or not God is a delusion.
