course, God, conveniently remains outside of investigation, despite the great claims for such a being. It's almost as if He ain't there!

Interestingly, God isn't outside of investigation! We can investigate in considerable detail why people believe in gods. If we find that why people believe in gods isn't actually because of gods, then we can show that the belief in gods is unconnected with whether or not gods exist. If there is no connection, then the simplest position to take is that they don't, and so we arrive at atheism.

It's actually very simple, almost trivial, to demonstrate that gods don't exist, because no reason for believing in gods has ever been shown to be justified.
