God must exist in order to destroy something.

In the context of the story no he doesn't.

Saying God murdered the first born of Egypt is no more 'proof' that he exists then saying Grand Moff Tarkin destroyed Alderran therefore he and the Empire are real.

Trouble rather the tiger in his lair than the sage among his books. For to you kingdoms and their armies are things mighty and enduring, but to him they are but toys of the moment, to be overturned with the flick of a finger.”

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
