Well; we CAN disprove certain things. I mean, we can disprove the flood with... FACTS. We can disprove the existence of SOME gods by taking what they did (i.e. Zeus and thunderbolts) and explain a NATURAL cause that eliminates the need for the god (meteorology).
So... we pretty much CAN disprove the "personal, prayer-answering" god with the lack of evidence OR the evidence that goes AGAINST it being true.
