One last irrelevant comment. We cannot prove or disprove the existence of God but that is partly because the nature of the question keeps getting redefined. The ancient Jews believed in (but did not worship) a sort of goblin called the "el." There is a story in Genesis about someone "wrestling with God" which is believed by scholars to go back to the "el" period. But I am not aware of anyone in the mainstream today who believes in els.

Later they worshipped a volcano which is now extinct.
Can you show some historical evidence of this outside of fundamentalist Christian, Islamic or Nazi literature?
