How about this from wiki:
In monotheistic thought, God is conceived of as the supreme being, creator deity, and principal object of faith.[1] God is usually conceived as being omniscient (all-knowing), omnipotent (all-powerful), omnipresent (all-present) and as having an eternal and necessary existence. These attributes are used either in way of analogy or are taken literally. God is most often held to be incorporeal (immaterial).[1][2][3] Incorporeality and corporeality of God are related to conceptions of transcendence (being outside nature) and immanence (being in nature) of God, with positions of synthesis such as the "immanent transcendence".

This doesn't prove there is a God at least in this concept, it's merely opinion. Key, monotheistic thought. Thought equals mental, in which case is nothing more then someone's imagination. Again, thought, puts it in the category of psychology. It's not likely that one can go back in time to find it's origin in as, who's thought? When was the term first used in a language. What did the original inventor of the term mean. What cased the original user(s) to devise the term. If the original user(s) cannot be determined then it has to be deemed an invention with unknown reasons to use the term.

There's no way to determine if the origin actually applies to what it means, or what they meant. What was it that it was applied to. There's no known evidence that such a being appeared to whom and announced himself to be God. IOW, who was the first person that this God told, I'm God. Without the original person we have nothing. It becomes a matter of, not proving that God doesn't exist, it becomes a matter proving he/it does exist. Proving it lies with the one who claims he/it does exist. The one who says God (as described) doesn't exist cannot prove that something unknown to him exists, he has no dog in the show. 
The only thing possible the world needs saving from are the ones running it.
Oh lord, save us from those wanting to save us.
