Instead of trying to prove or disprove existence of a god, why don't we simply prove or disprove the relevance of a god's existence?

If it ain't relevant then we save ourselves the trouble of proving it or disproving it.

If it is proven to be relevant then okay, that's good, then we can at least feel good knowing it's going to be important. So my question is, why not do first things first? In other words why argue about something if we don't yet know whether it matters?
