You made a mistake in logic. You say that "God" cannot be proven or disproven. This is a contradiction in terms. If God cannot be disproven, then He is proven. If He cannot be proven, then He is disproven. You can't have both. You must first define what God is before you can analytically prove his existence. God is defined as the "first being." Now we have to define what a "being" is. A being is an entity, and an entity is an autonamous functioning system that percieves, contemplates, chooses, and acts. We are beings, and if you don't believe that there is no reason to discuss further.
Since only beings act, then the first nature must be a being. To start at the first nature, you must start at nothing. Nothing does not exist. It is like the point. The point is an idea, but can't be drawn or decribed except as a beginning. So nothing is not, therefore life is. This is the beginning of the 0-10 fundamental principles which progress into the concept-reality progression. This is what half of my book 2016 The Final Revelation is about, so I'm not going to explain the whole thing here. The famous numbers of the Bible, being mainly 3, 7, 12, 33, 40, 70, and 72 are understood by this progression.
