How does this differ from solipsism?

Not sure what your question is. People are solipsistic, especially children and women. Still they believe in a big other.

This is the definition of solipsism I get from google: 'the view or theory that the self is all that can be known to exist'. Women and children who have a genuine belief in God tend not to be self centered.

I know that Zizek has good things to say about Christianity for example: 'https://youtu.be/C16eiQH06RE' and while I don't fully agree with it, I agree that it beats atheism on atheism's own terms.

I was wondering how he does so without falling into solipsism.
