  • Well, if it was proven false you would have to be in denial to remain in faith. So. Yes i would "change" it. My beliefs would still be the same, but my religion label would be different.

  • If my beliefs were proven false, I'd be an idiot to continue following them.

  • Yes  I would change. However the "proof" that most people offer is really just twisting of information to suit their needs.

  • If there was proof that a god exists then I could no longer be an Atheist but it doesn't mean that I would practice that religion.  A god would have to prove to me that s/he is worthy of my devotion.

  • Yes, I'm open to new information. And it would influence my beliefs.

  • Been there, done that.

    What it did was throw me into a situation where I had to look outside the pretty box and in the process learned more about myself and my spirituality. So, it wasnt really a bad thing at all.

  • I think I would have to questions this "proof" But I don't think any proof that men can come up with would be enough to change my faith over!

  • Well, I did once upon a time.

    But if a god popped up one day and was like "TA-DAAA! HERE I AM, WORSHIP ME!" I'd say "Fuck you!" because no god worthy of my worship would let bad things happen like babies dying and people going hungry. Nope! Sorry.

  • i agree with beeky. There is no real proof of a God...only a book. Kinda like Santa..and we all know who Santa is and that just makes me wonder so i would need proof
