The inference in this question is, “These were mythical gods, and so is yours.” Atheists are correct about these gods being myths. Man gravitates toward idolatry (making up false gods) as a moth does to a flame. There are millions of false gods—Hinduism alone has 330 million—but there is only one Creator. That is the God who revealed Himself to Moses and gave us His moral Law. And that is the God you and I will have to face on Judgment Day.
Another argument atheists use is that they cannot prove that God doesn’t exist, just as you and I cannot prove that the tooth fairy doesn’t exist. This is a demeaning way of equating belief in God with belief in the tooth fairy. It is true that we cannot disprove the existence of either the tooth fairy or God. However, belief in the existence of the tooth fairy is inconsequential. Belief in and therefore obedience to the one true God has eternal consequences.
Joshua 23:7 and lest you go among these nations, these who remain among you. You shall not make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause anyone to swear by them; you shall not serve them nor bow down to them
