I would advise that you do not dismiss the idea of an infinite Creator, while I would agree on refuting the characteristics and personality of God that is portrayed in the Bible, seek to understand/know/accept a Supreme Force of which we are very much a part of. Even with the possibilities of Aliens and other extra-terrestrial life forms, the probability of a divine consciousness should not be refuted.
The proof of GOD’s existence is not found in the Bible or any other religious text, it is in Creation. It is in the mathematical, precise and perfect design. So intelligent, that it can be studied and manipulated by man. If trees, animals, plants, planets and stars are alive, then,...then the entire universe is alive. It is this life...this awareness...this intelligence, which is GOD the creator. Things are unfolding as they should, and man is just a part (probable insignificant part) of this cycle of life.
In conclusion the stories contain in the bible is exactly that...stories. In began with flaws, the stories of creation which suggest two different Gods created the universe, one by spoken words and thoughts and the other that actually molded and made things with his own hands. In todays day and age if there is anyone who reads the bible in entirety and has no doubts, qureis, they are either extremely stupid or living in denial.
