You can't prove that there's no god
With all due respect, I have to question why you use this type of argument at all because it does not establish anything useful. I can't prove that there is no god any more than you can prove that you worship the right one when you have so many to choose from.
You might even admit that God doesn't exactly make it easy for you to believe in him either. The bible is often used as 'evidence' for his existence, but let's face it, it isn't good evidence. The bible is supposed to be the inspired word of God, but The Old Testament includes other gods - Baal perhaps being Yahweh's greatest rival. El and all the host of heaven appear from time to time too.
Many of the stories existed for centuries or millennia before they were written down as The Torah.
The gospels in the New Testament neither agree with each other, nor with the known historical facts from a region that was of great strategic importance to the Roman Empire, in a century that is particularly well documented. e.g. The Crucifiction Darkness and the raising of all the dead in Jerusalem would surely not have gone un-noticed.
I feel that these are some of the reasons to have a strong doubt about the existence of god(s) in general and your God in particular.
That's true. And you can do better? No, I thought not. I can't actually prove the non-existence of the tooth fairy or unicorns but I'm an a-fairyist and an a-unicornist too.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence!
