The same case exists with the Holy Scriptures; when you knock one down then the next one inevitably falls, etc.
So, either God created the heavens and the earth or it’s just a piece of fiction.
Either Adam sinned causing a rift between God and mankind that only God could remedy or it’s just a story.
Either God walked and talked with Abraham or He did not.
Either God delivered the nation of Israel from Egypt by His mighty power or it’s a lie.
Either God carved the Ten Commandments on two tablets of stone with His own finger or Moses did it with a chisel and hammer and just said that God did it.
Either the prophets predicted the fall of Israel and their domination by Babylon, Syria, Greece and Rome or it was written after the fact and disguised as a prophecy which makes it a lie.
Either Jesus was born of a virgin or He was not making Him a human like any other or He is the Son of God.
Either Jesus is God or He is not.
Either faith in Christ brings us forgiveness and acceptance into the kingdom of God or it is a cruel hoax.
Either Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life who was crucified for the forgiveness of our sins and who rose from the dead and is now interceding for us in heaven or he was a demonic liar who was justly crucified and rotted in the grave like any other man.
Either the Bible is true or it is not.
Either the God we serve is the all powerful, all knowing, omnipresent God about which the Bible speaks from beginning to end or God is just one more little hand made idol to be knocked over and forgotten.
