Q: Why should I believe that Christianity is any truer than other religions? I’m not sure any religion can claim to have the truth (and in fact, I’m not even sure God exists), but I’m open to changing my mind.— S.L.
A: I’m not sure that any gods exist either, and I’m pretty sure that the Christian god and Jesus are only human inventions. The stories and themes of the Christian bible were borrowed from older religions and cultures (see here, here, and here). They are inconsistent and often flat-out wrong about the natural world. The New Testament stories were written decades after the supposed death of Jesus and their authorship is unknown. This book has no credibility. It’s good for us to keep an open mind about our universe, but for now there is no good reason or evidence that I have seen to believe that any supernatural beings exist. If credible evidence or a plausible reason are found, then I will reassess my conclusion.
