Okam's Razor, in the absence of proof, the simplest answer is usually the correct one.
Consider this, God created the entire universe right? In the observable universe (approx 22 billion light years horizon to horizon), there are at least 100 billion galaxies, each with approx 100 billion stars. Science now knows that at least 30% of stars have planets, so there are trillions of planets out there.....if even only one in a billion has intelligent life.....that's million of societies out there, some no doubt, more advanced than us. And what if these more advanced people don't look anything like us? Yet, we're made in God's image? How could WE be in God's image if there were people out there more advanced than us? So the Earth is actually just a spec in the ocean. And I'll bet that when we meet these more advanced people, they WON'T hand us a bible. But if the Bible is REALLY the universal code, you'ld think ALL planets & societies would use it, right?
Yet on Earth, you have at least 5 major religions, each divided into hundreds of sub sects & most disagree about the nature of God, which holy book to follow & the road to salvation. If we as a planet cannot agree on a doctrine of God ( and we're just one of millions of intelligent societies).....how accurate can these differing religious concepts be?
I'm going to speculate that sometime in the next 300 years we will find these other societies, and the major religions of the Earth will relegated to the history books like old Egyptian and Greek mythologies.
