I will agree that most of the beliefs **I** have comes from the Bible, but that's not the entire conversation & you know it.
There were plenty of people that believed in God for centuries before there was a Bible. There were people that believed in Jesus for centuries before there was a Bible.
That is fact.
That is not a "fact" that's just what people have told you to manipulate you into the quest for Christian world dominance.
Christians are trying to take over the world and OWN the world. They are in combat with Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, and every other religion in order to eliminate them and have an "all Christian world"
Even if they have to instigate an Armegeddon to do so.
Christians are willing to kill the whole human race for their goal.
"If Christians can't have the world, then NO ONE can!"
That's what's behind their "end of the world" stuff. They WANT the world to end because nothing less than an "all Christian, preferably WHITE Christian, world will do.
Appearently the "Christian god" is a racist, sexist white male...

I'm not ignoring anything except your misinterpretation of the available facts.
Wiki:
"Yahweh may exist as an ending of some Amorite male names, though the only Canaanite mention of Yahweh, found on the Mesha Stele, refers to the God of Israel contrasted with Chemosh."
Chemosh is in the Bible, Num. 21:29, Jer. 48:7, 13, 46. Cast out as another false God. Replaced with the love of the Lord.
"In the case of the Hebrews, the cult of Yah, or Yahu, or Yahweh, was simply a local worship sometimes aggrandised by the King, adopted and documentally imposed on the fictitious history of the nation long afterwards." M. Lang, Making of Religion, pp. 190-8.

"El was the chief god at Ugarit. Yet El is also the name of God used in many of the Psalms for Yahweh. Yet when one reads these Psalms and the Ugaritic texts one sees that the very attributes for which Yahweh is acclaimed are the same for which El is acclaimed. In fact, these Psalms were most likely originally Ugaritic or Phoenician hymns to El which were simply adopted by Israel" End quote
Smith, Mark S., The origins of biblical monotheism : Israel's polytheistic background and the Ugaritic texts, New York : Oxford University Press, 2001

You have to understand that much of the Judaic mythology came from earlier Ugaritic myths and other cultures that dominated the regions that early Semite/Hebrews inhabited. They adopted many religious elements during the Babylonian captivity.

Judaism wasn't fully monotheistic(sects or vestiges still popularly persisted) until as late as 400-200 BCE.(the oldest extant copy/remnants of the Torah just happens to be dated to 2nd century BCE)

Its interesting to note that the attributes of the 3 MAIN gods of the early Hebrew/Judaic polytheistic beliefs coincide to many of the same attributes of the "triune" gods of Christianity as well.**Asherah, for instance, the icon/symbol was a tree on a hill, associated with virgin births, loaves of bread, fish and an ancient goddess of, you guessed it, fisherman etc...** Ba'al was a fertility god and an agricultural god that required portions of the harvest(animals, blood be spilt) as a sacrifice.

You appear confused.
Chemosh was the god of the moabites (you know, Moab - in Jordan).......
Dunno 'bout you, but I look at gods like Chemosh about as real as Zeus.
If those "gods" aren't real, just how is yours any real-er? They are not.
By virtue of you saying that "they are false gods" someone else can say, and HAVE said that YOUR "god" is the false one.

Remember that 0-0=0.

Each time you claim another's god as false, they can make the same claim about yours. They HAVE, and they ARE.
Therefore, the possibility of a "god" is eliminated, because all the "gods" are false!

Honestly I used to not be so certain. But lemme tell ya, when God touches you & speaks to you, you know it.
I had my doubts, which I argued incessantly with my dad & grandpa. I doubted that God was real, heaven, prayer, hell, angels, etc. I thought that it was all bull. And I was raised in a Christain home.
About 30 years ago, when I needed Him the most, God touched my head & spoke to me, literally. From that point on I had absolutely no doubt that He's real.
It was then that I started asking the "why"...
And don't let the atheists fool you, they're gonna shoot me down with some physco babble and say it was all in my head. They're wrong.
Amazing that god only appears during bouts of deep trauma and never visits when things are going well.

You're just reading a different version of the holy book than he is. That is simply what it is.
It's not good for the universe for all these "gods" to be fighting each other for dominance.
Humans have given this "god" too many HUMAN characteristics, like making him jealous, vengeful, evil, and murderous, just like a HUMAN.
"Worship ME ME ME ME ME and ONLY ME ME ME ME..."
Wow... the Christian "god" has this much of an ego problem? The HUBRIS of this "god"...amazing.
Maybe "god" IS just one of US, after all...because this "god" sure ACTS like an evil, mass-murdering human like Hitler.

You do not have sufficient evidence to conclude that God is false (0).
