Making God pointless doesn't render God real. Trying to hide your deity from the light of science and reason and sneak it under new rocks and in deeper holes, doesn't make atheism the wrong answer. Or people who who aren't intimately aware of the various places you've tried to hide your feeble and now pointless god, ill-informed. Even a child who drew a correct analogy to Santa Claus, and lost her faith accordingly, got the right answer without reading excessive amounts of prattle. And failing to do that reading, doesn't make the conclusion in error.
