It disproved the Christian god

The Bible is a collection of books. The books in the Bible were chosen by a Roman Council. Many good historical books were left out of the cannon. Other books were adulterated. In any event, the Bible is NOT written by God. It was written and compiled by human kind..specifically men.
Many books in the New Testament were passed on via oral traditions and finally written down hundreds of years later. Did you ever play the telephone game in elementary school. The object of the game was to pass a long a secret. The final person spoke the secret out loud. By the time the story is finally repeated to everyone, it has transformed into a nearly unrecognizable tale. I suspect this happened during the oral periods of the Bible.
Sorry, the book isn't of god. Some even feel it is worthless as a historical record. I personally do not believe it was of god. However, archeology has demonstrated that some of the places written about in the Bible actually exist. I think we put way too much emphasis on the Bible. I wish we would put as much energy into exploring our oceans and underground caves. It would be more productive.
because how much sense does it make to you that some guy was the only thing to exist then he just got bored one day and made a bunch of stuff and it happens to be that he only made ONE galaxy but we have scientific proof that we have more than just the milky way,

All this thread demonstrates, at least to me, is that knowledge, understanding, and awareness, particularly among the young, is rapidly devolving, due to a lack of research, consideration, imagination, wisdom and intelligence.
