If someone gave you solid proof that was undoubtable that all religions were false and only science was true, would you still believe???

Generally, that issue doesn't come up between my religious beliefs & science. Buddhism embraces new scientific discoveries while some other religions find conflict with them. They go together quite well.
Someone once had a brief conversation with the Da'lai Lama that would fit any religion & their faith. The man said to him "What if...." (and I can't remember the exact quote) science could prove reincarnation wasn't real. (Reincarnation is big deal in Tibeten Buddhism) His Holiness replied that he would direct his followers to abandon Buddhism & persue a different faith. Then he asked him HOW, exactly, he planned on proving reincarnation wasn't possible. The man didn't have an answer. :-)

lovingmomto3: I would believe in god if there was concrete evidence to prove his existence. I don't bury my head in the sand just because I don't like the evidence.
Of course that doesn't mean I would worship him. I have seen nothing that deserves my devotion.
