Catholics/Many Gods. Jumping to a conclusion

Advertisement


Question
Man has created many Gods. How can we be sure the personal God of the Bible is not just another one? The Earth, seasons, the sky, the stars, planets  the milky way and the Universe may not have been created by the Biblical God but rather by an unknown something we have yet to  conceive and understand. If the One and True God remains silent as Joseph Conrad purposes, it is possible we (believers in the Bible) are wrong in our assumption and are jumping to conclusions.

Answer
