Religious texts do not prove god's existence

    Imagine a clueless humanity reemerging long after a worldwide apocalypse. One of the immediate discoveries that has survived happens to be a Spider-Man comic. These people are so impressed that they believe and accept Spider-Man as a deity worthy of worship based merely on the text discovered.

    From a logical perspective, modern man has done this with biblical and religious texts that are purely mythological in nature. Minus the reemergence after an apocalypse part.

    It is odd to me that people would believe that an omnipotent God would use the same mechanism as any number of man-made religions to communicate his/her/their ideas to the world. Surely an all-powerful deity could come up with something more convincing, if he/she/they were interested in being distinguished from a fake?

    You haven't provided a significant enough proof that religious doctrines are myth.

    I can easily compare any religious doctrine to Greek mythology, thereby deducing that these religious believers have yet to accept their doctrines as the myth they are.
