There is No god.. very simple "only function"
The bible was written thousands of years ago, before we had any knowledge about the way the universe really works.
People were still asking the same questions we do today, such as "where did we come from" and "how did everything begin?". With such a limited scientific frame to work with, the only logical answers that could be conceived was that "God" or "The Gods" created everything.
The God from the bible is not really the God that is real, as almost any academic or scientist who believes in higher power will tell you.
As Einstein and Michio Kaku say:
"I don't really believe in the God of the bible and religions, but in the God of nature and harmony; the God you can see in the beauty that is the universe and everything in it."
There is a lot of suggestion towards intelligent design because of the way the universe works.
The laws of physics, to be created in such a perfect flawless way, in the "randomness" that we are supposed to live in, suggest that someone may have designed them. I remember reading that if you would leave it up to chance to make these laws, the chance of them being made so perfectly is the equivalent of throwing a dart to the earth from the moon, and hitting a target the size of an atom. Anything less would cause chaos and no life.
Gravity has also been perfectly tuned. I also remember reading that gravity's valued set could be pictured as 1 channel on one of those old horizontal radio dials, as long as the entire universe itself. 1 centimeter in either direction would create a universe where life would be impossible.
Generally speaking, when you think about it, the universe, and us, according to atheists, should be impossible.
