    If there is no god, then atheist Bob is not better than god.
    So, the Bob does not exist.
    God is supreme Being. So, non-existent one means, that Bob is non-existent.

    Zombie/vampire is there but is dead and non-existent. Presence and existence are not the same.

    That's because Bob won't last beyond 120 years, so both Bob and God are dead and therefore don't exist.

    God may exist only as a concept, meaning Bob simply doesn't believe in a concept. His existence is secure. Indeed, since atheists exist, this means their existence is not contingent upon God's existence.

    You start out assuming God exist. If God does not exist then God cannot be the supreme being.
    Your logic is begging the question.

    Then I would think "Theist vs God" might be a more informative title.

    For such an amazing scientist, you have a terrible time with logic.

    Ultimately, everything that exists leaves behind some evidence. That puts Bob clearly in the lead in the existence contest.

    If you spell God backward, you get dog. On the other hand, if you spell Bob backward, you get Bob. For this reason, Bob is eternally Bob. If he is eternal, he exists.
