Eight Reasons Why Christianity Is False

    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. 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.

      • Okay the what if you are following the wrong God? What id Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are the real gods and you worshiping the God of Abraham is just passing them off? What if it is really Odin and he’s really pissed at being ignored for a thousand years. So you end either reincarnated as a slug or in the Norse version of hell.

    2. first of all we have no idea. No one can say theat they are sure he does or doesn't exist, we just don't know. I don't like Christian heaven though. I dont want to sit in a temple singing songs of worship. I want to hangout with my fam and do stuff. I am not chirstian. But i belive in god.I am jewish. I dont belive in Christ

    3. Right from the beginning, the bible is inhumane as well as fools us. Few points:
      This universe was created in 6 days. Earth was created before the sun.
      Talking snake. Eve wasn't surprised. Suffering and death because of the disobedience of one women.!!
      Bible advises that we can own slaves as well as beat them.
      Man stoned to death for picking up sticks on the Sabbath.
      God killed 70k people because David took a census !! ?
      Numerous genocides.
      The concept of god killing his own son, in order to forgive humans. Ridiculous to the core.
      Women should not talk in the church nor teach a man.

    4. Okay, I have to say this. the first reason (and all the others) are false. GOD DOES answer prayer. granted, it's not always a "yes" because GOD knows what is best; he knows what we need. He has a plan. He can use evil for good. He hears every prayer. If you don't believe Jesus is GOD and confess with your mouth that HE IS GOD, you will end up somewhere you DON'T want to go.

    5. I wish the Author of this had written about the core of Christianity rather than the believers who partake in it. The correct questions to ascertain validity are did Jesus exist, was He killed, and did He resurrect? Paul in 1 Corinthians 15 says as much. If Jesus wasn’t resurrected lets have a drink and cast our cares away and we are most to be pitied among men (believers if Christ wasn’t resurrected). He then claims He was resurrected. Cross examine historical data of people of the age and their tellings of Jesus along with the writings of scripture. Also, consider that the Roman empire had many men killed including religious ones and prophets from all over the place but later converted their empire to the teachings of a carpenter. All of this can be scrutinized and doubted but it is of interest. Finally, the faith of a religion, especially Christianity is full of people who don’t often resemble the founder of said religion which is not necessarily a testament to its validity however there are some remarkable people of the faith that had remarkable things happen amidst all the posers. As Gandhi once said “ I would be a Christian if it were not for the Christians”.
