GOD IS NOT REAL. The reason for this is because someone just randomly made up the Bible, how can we be so sure and just believe that? Case closed.

Yes God is real, the universe didn't start from nothing however god isn't necessarily the god you think of from the bible which I believe is man-made book. I believe in Deism just to clarify http://en.wikipedia.org...
a lot of the smartest people in the world believe in Deism
Examples:
http://en.wikipedia.org... --> Abraham Lincoln
http://en.wikipedia.org... --> Albert Einstein(the smartest person of his time and possibly history.)
http://en.wikipedia.org... --> Benjamin Franklin
http://en.wikipedia.org... --> Isaac Newton
http://en.wikipedia.org... --> James Madison
http://en.wikipedia.org... --> James Watt
http://en.wikipedia.org... --> John Locke
http://en.wikipedia.org... --> Neil Armstrong

The effects we acknowledge naturally, do include a power of their producing, before they were produced; and that power presupposeth something existent that hath such power; and the thing so existing with power to produce, if it were not eternal, must needs have been produced by somewhat before it, and that again by something else before that, till we come to an eternal, that is to say, the first power of all powers and first cause of all causes; and this is it which all men conceive by the name of God, implying eternity, incomprehensibility, and omnipotence.
"Thomas Hobbes, Works, vol. 4, pp. 59"60; quoted in John Orr, English Deism, p. 76

First half of Con's round two case relies upon an argument from authority.
