Eight Reasons Why Christianity Is False

By Bill Flavell | 13 April 2016

There is very little that we can prove in this world. However, we can look for evidence to support claims people make and, when there is sufficient supporting evidence and no contrary evidence, we can conclude a claim is probably true.

However, it is easier to prove something is false – all you need is contradictory evidence. Here are my eight reasons why Christianity is false. There is abundant evidence to support each reason. I don’t have space here to give the evidence but if you are not aware of it, I can provide it.

1. There is clear evidence that prayer does not work despite the Bible promising prayers will be answered.

2. There is clear evidence that humans invent gods and there is no reason to believe the Jewish god is an exception.

3. There is clear evidence that religions and gods are propagated through culture by infecting children, and no evidence that they are propagated by gods.

4. There is clear evidence that religions evolve as human understanding of the world changes whilst a real, God-given religion, should never need to change.

5. There is clear evidence that humans on this planet have unequal access to Christianity so, if Christianity is true, billions would be condemned to hell for no fault of their own. This contradicts the Christian notion that God is omni-benevolent.

6. There is clear evidence that the Bible, supposedly inspired by God, is riddled with the type of errors that we would expect from Iron Age men but not from the creator of the universe.

7. Christian theology is incoherent to the point of absurdity. God killing his son so he can forgive our future sin is like me breaking my son’s legs so I can forgive my neighbour in case she ever parks her car on my drive. It is quite ridiculous.

8. There is clear evidence that the arguments presented for the existence of God are founded on logical fallacies – all of them. All that is left for Christians is faith and their feelings. We know that faith and feelings can be used to believe in any god at all – including non-existent gods. So faith and feelings are epistemologically worthless. And that is all Christians have.

I rest my case.

  1. For Loer06, regarding basic Christian theology, we all sin so we deserve to go to hell. So god, who loves us unconditionally, set up the rules, under which certain things are sins. We need someone perfect to sacrifice himself so our sins are forgiven. What kind of goofy system is that. It just takes the superstitions of a primitive tribe and uses them to create a theology that makes no logical sense.
    How were these rules set up? Didn't the all knowing god know that a very high percentage of the children he supposedly loves would fail (being just human) and end up being tortured for all eternity. Who would set up such a system?

    I'll tell you who would. A primitive tribe that believed all sorts of superstitious nonsense. The god of the old testament is a psycho, ordering his "chosen" to brutally murder innocents, all the while proclaiming his greatness. The god of the New testament condemns a sizeable portion of his "children" to eternal punishment even if they had never heard of him. C'mon. Wake up!

  2. You could right a book the size of the bible picking out the inconsistencies and downright nonsense in the Christian, Jewish and Muslim Bible. Yes they are all essentially the same book. Anyone who has read the Qu'ran should notice straight away that it is nothing more than a abbreviated (and extremely boring) version of the Bible. I look upon the conflict between Christians, Jews and Muslims in the same way that I look upon the conflict between the Democrats and Republicans. An elaborate pantomime show put on for the masses in much the same way the Romans put on a show of gladiators. They are all the same thing. The Bible as whole is a very unpleasant look full of very unpleasant inconsistencies. Was Jesus hung for a tree of crucified? Read Acts, apparently hung from a tree? I could go on forever with the lies in the Bible but the brainwashed die hards will always find a way to keep their lengthy chain mail letter going.
    However nothing is more damning than the Egyptian book of the dead. The Hebrew Kingdom extended into part of Egypt for a time (they were never slaves) The Egyptian Book of the Dead written around 3000BC outlines in great detail a story which except for the names of the characters is exactly the same story as Jesus. For the stupid amongst us it is very clear that the Jews plagiarized the stories for the Bible from the Book of the Dead and other works of that time. Now that said I am not an Atheist. I started reading up on the worlds oldest religion (which has been attacked and vilified by our Christian do gooders for hundreds of years. All of it false) It's hard to explain. I felt good and spiritually awakened just reading about Hinduism. It just made sense. Every aspect of it is positive including caring for the environment and animals. So, I'm not attacking religion but there is no doubt that Abrahamic religions have been neatly constructed and packed for export.

  3. Christianity has plagiarized 100’s of religions . It just amazes me how blindly ignorant Christians are , the arrogance of Christians , you ever notice how they all judge each other ?? . they break their own rules constantly knowingly . They take no responsibility for any of their actions , ( GOD BLESSED YOU) “ME BEING A NICE) ,(GENEROUS) PERSON NO GOD DONE IT”. OR ( The devil made me do it it wasn’t my fault ).

    iT’S all total BS. the Gov should remove all tax exceptions for religious groups who make more than 50k a year .

  4. The fact that Jesus Christ teachings, or just the New Testament, contradicts Jewish teachings, was enough for me. It's mind boggling that christian theologians can even make excuses for this, or twist it in their favor. This is the case for so many biblical errors.
    I don't believe the Judaism either, but one would think the new testament and old would fall in perfect place.
    Have to admit, watching the way christians worship God on tv scares me. How any God could want that for his creation scares the hell out of me. I would not be happy doing that: bowing down, and worshipping it all the time. It's just awful, and scary.

  5. Let's think about big numbers a bit. Let's create a new math operator similar to exponents. Call it large exponents or Lexponents. It works like this: instead of raising a starting number to some power, it takes the starting number and raises it to itself. So say the starting number is 32. It takes 32 and raises it to the power of 32. Next it takes that resulting number and raises it to the result. So we have 1.46…^48 raised to the power of 1.46…^48 and we have left the ability to follow along on our calculators already. It continues in this fashion taking the result and raising it to the power of that result until we've done this 32 times or the number of times of the starting number. Now we think about the fact that this impossibly huge number shrinks to nothingness in the face of infinity no matter how large the starting number is.

    If we live forever, then instead of stopping the process of raising the result to the power of the result we let this continue on forever without end. And yet whenever we decide to halt it to take a peek at the result, however large it shrinks to nothingness in comparison to what follows as we let this process continue on f-o-r-e-v-e-r.

    Next consider that any possible activity that you could possibly engage in as an immortal being will be subject to this number of repetitions. Like to play chess? You will replay every possible sequence of moves infinitely many times. This same problem exists for every activity there is to do.

    In reality, death is not a problem to be conquered by a god at all. It saves us from a fate worse than death – immortality itself.

    Asserting the an existence outside of time does not solve this problem of hellish boredom. Either we would be able to do things or not do things as immortals. If we can't do anything that alone would be hell. If we can do things than we cannot escape endless repetition of every possible activity there is to engage in.

  6. Only one reason is
    The Bible 'book' is a compendium of fire side tales and fables,

    recounted orally for generations by goat herders and primitive tribes from the stone age, until writing was invented,

    and then again, many different sources, transliterations, and versions were copied and written down.

    ''The Bible was created during a time where stories were orally passed down over thousands of years.
    Stories constantly morphed and changed over time, and the Bible is a collection of these.
    This is why it has the nearly identical flood story from Gilgamesh, and why Jesus has the same characteristics as Dionysus, Osiris, Horus, Mithra, and Krishna.
    The contradictions and immorality in the stories are not evidence that God is flawed or evil,
    but rather that humans invented him, just like the thousands of other gods that we used to but no longer believe in.''

    …and to answer the questions of the many fears and mysteries of our universe, like 'thunder' and earthquakes, since there was no science yet.

    This is the old Testament.

    The �new� Testes is also hearsay since these letters, �gospels� and stories were written by the loyal faithful, the camp followers,
    not by objective historians at that particular time,
    or by any contemporary writers,
    and these tales were written many years after the supposed events of this mythical Jesus.

    Thus, there is no verifiable evidence of a Jesus in real documented history.

    Then, many of these stories, but not all, as many were not chosen,
    [ There are more than just four Gospels but only these four were agreed on ],
    were compiled for one self-absorbed converted Roman Emperor in his Nicean Council,
    for his expressed purpose of conquest and
    control of the people of Europe for his Holy Roman Empire.
    He recognised that this was the perfect religion/mythology for the future domination of the populaces.

    Half of the stories were ignored by the Nicean Bishops and none have been proven to be based on fact.

    This �Bable� book is backed up by absolutely no facts and no evidence.
    It is not proof for any god(s) ….(or of any jesus as a god…)

    It is a historical novel……

    Only!

    The Bible is proof of a book ONLY (certainly not evidence of any gods…)
    necessary!

  7. If people did research into a topic before posting speculative garbage on the internet, this sight would have no comments. People often wish to justify their way of life by claiming that there is no God who will judge them for their actions. Let me be the first to tell you, THERE IS! I weep when I read these comments because it reminds me of how truly lost the world is, and how easily man accepts the "truth" of other men than the infallible word of God. You can't disprove Christianity because it is the truth. You can't approach the Bible with human reason, because we as humans cannot fully grasp the wisdom of God. There is evil in this world as a result of man's sins, not God's inability to remove said sin. Logically two nothings don't make everything. I personally would rather believe that there is a man with a plan that I can't understand, than that the world and everything in it shouldn't be here.

  8. So very sad, you are possessed which proves there is evil and demons. You voiced only opinions, not facts, you voiced a troubled soul, which already proves what the Bible says, Good and Evil. The Bible is full of facts of history that happened before it happened, Alexander the Great in the Book of Daniel, Titus, Herod, so many in the Bible that was foretold before things were fulfilled, this is called prophecy in case you are unaware of terms. The Bible has been proven over and over due to the history written before it happened, while it happened and after it happened. There is no contradictions in the Bible, you just don't know what it is saying as so many take scriptures out of text. We have history books in schools, things that has happened in the past, we accept them, why? Someone wrote them down as it happened or as they remembered, the Bible is the same, but these were men of God chosen to write down the past, present, future. We are seeing the future coming to pass right now as the Bible predicted, and the next war will be one you won't miss, the nuclear war, predicted in Zachariah, Revelation, where the flesh will melt off of the body, a world wide war, then even You will know that God is God, but sad to say, it will be too late for you to repent. You have been blinded, your destiny is hell unless you come to the Lord and repent, and if you don't, which the Lord gives us the freedom to choose, you will find the Bible to be True, and Yes there is a True God and Son Jesus Christ, it will be on the Day of Judgment. You gave no proof at all, my Bible proves it over and over again that the Bible is full of Facts, and Fate of mankind, including yours.

  9. Have been a Christian since age 13, and a minister of the Good News of Jesus Christ since age 19. If you believe there is no God that is your prerogative. And if you were to ask me that when I die, what then? Here is my answer. If I die and find out that there is no God, I will have lost nothing. But if you die and find out there is a God, you will have lost everything. End of conversation.
