Using reasoned logic, the Intellectually honest answer is "we do not know". If we look at the history of gods, we see that man has invented thousands of gods over thousands of years and all have been myths, so you may be right, but we don't know.
Religious faith is both arrogant and ignorant. Because of it's certainty
Far from being arrogant the scientific method is one of humility. It acknowledges the limits of our current knowledge. It doesn't provide explanations or answers from a position of ignorance, but investigates the unknown in an attempt to reach understanding based on empirical evidence. Surely it is the superstitious or religious approach which claims to know the answers without any evidence except "faith" that is the arrogant approach.

The farthest someone can get to proving God exists (at least from what I've seen) is linking prophecies to real life events, whether the prophecies are from ancient times or a few months ago. There's also the Kalam Cosmological argument, but that argument seems to not be valid, according to a few debates I've been in.
