I'm sorry that you have doubts.
I'm not trying to prove I'm right but just say what I believe.
The evidence I have is trying to live 12 simple rules that God gave us and seeing how following those rules provided a me a better life. . It's far
from a perfect life but it's better life. It's first hand knowledge that you could have if your willing to try.
The rules are just commonsense advice that people have trouble following for thousand of years.
If they did it would be easy to see that life would be a lot better.
I have noting against other realigns.
But detachment for me was like having a Guitar with no strings, you can't play music. That's why Buddhism didn't appeal to me.
I could be wrong, like you, but if I am what am I going to lose.
If your whole gripe with God is with all the Hippocrates who go to church to condemn others.
Then get a Bible, close the door to your room, and pray. Don't tell any one.
As an Agnostic your not sure. Please make an genuine effort to find out.
What do you have to lose that so valuable? Your tricked or where wrong. If you lived more that 3 years on this planet, I'm sure that already happened
to you and you survived.
Worst case you'll learn a bit more history and follow some commonsense advice.
