Even if it's not true God is STILL not needed, that is to say the God hypothesis is of no help whatsoever in understanding anything; it makes no attempt at explaining HOW God does things nor does it explain how and why God came to be. All it does is kick everything we don't understand upstairs and say further investigations into these matters are off limits. No explanation at all is preferable to a explanation that just makes things worse and adds a pointless layer of complication. There is no disgrace in saying in a loud clear voice "I don't know", but counterproductive pseudo-explanations are a disgrace.
