Also, is it reasonable to believe in Christianity, considering it has never been proven wrong?
Where has hinduism been proven wrong? Buddhism?
How was Greek mythology proven to be wrong? You do realize that there are still people living in Greece who believe in the Greek pantheon of gods, as they call it. And they consider their country under christian occupation. Do you have a way to prove to them that their gods are not real? Is there something you can say to them about their gods that doesn't apply to your own? That disproves them?
Or are you forced to accept that all claims of gods are equally legitimate unless fraud is detectable. Such as with mormons and such. If a cultural group claims it has gods and those gods are real, how in the world can you proclaim them to be wrong and yourself right using the exact same standards? They have no proof that their god is real, you have no proof that yours is. They are forced to believe because proof doesn't exist, as are you.Their gods haven't shown up in person and introduced themselves to the masses, nor has your god.
I've always wondered this. If there is a real god, why would be play exactly the same game as all the false gods; i.e., why would he be just as invisible and require exactly as much belief/faith? You'd think a real go could avoid the flaws of a fake religion, you know, by being a bit more forthright and stuff. But if the hindu or christian or greek gods are real and none of the others are, the real god(s) appear to be unconcerned.
No far-fetched claim can be disproven unless the claimants make the mistake of being too specific. Something neither the hindus or christians have done. And when specific claims are made (such as a specific day for jc to return) and it doesn't happen, there is always a human individual willing to explain why they were wrong. Their unmet predictions/claims/etc. never involved the god itself. The dude(s) and, if applicable, dudettes, always get off scott free.
So nope, we can't disprove gods. Just as we can't disprove the Icelandic little people, the Huldufólk. In Iceland, it is illegal to throw rocks, because you might hit their version of a leprechaun. And over half the population thinks that the Huldufólk are real. You can't disprove it. Is that, in and of itself, a good enough reason to believe them to be real?
The reason I initially became an atheist as a child (at around 10 or 11) was that I was being taught all about Greek mythology during the week at school, and then being told virtually identical stories in Sunday school as if they were real. And while you can fool some of the people some of the time, you can't food all the people all of the time, and in my case, the acceptance of religious claims came to a grinding halt..
Over half a century later, I'm confident I made the right choice. And you can't prove me wrong.
So if neither side can prove the other one wrong, why should a person go with the positive claim? Why, when every christian story sounds just like Achilles being dipped in the pool, should I say to myself "Oh, that sounds real. Yea, sure, I can see a big boat full of animals really happening. And the garden thingy. It could happen…"
I can't think of a reason in the world to take christian claims seriously. Not a single one. If I didn't go to church when I was a teenager even though the church was full of cute girls, you can be darned sure I thought I was right. And I still do.
So nope, I can't prove christianity (or any other religion) wrong. But I have no reason to bother trying. Because no religion can prove itself true.
