Religion was created by humans to fill in the gaps about life, death, the universe etc. It is completely man made and written by people who had very little knowledge of science and the universe.

I assume I can that first round is definitions and acceptance.

Note: The BoP is not shared though I will try to prove that religion is credible.

All right then, I will define the word "credible".
1.Capable of persuading people that something will happen or be successful.

2.Able to be believed; convincing.

(Definition by the Oxford dictionary.)

All right so I will argue that the Christian religion can fulfill both definitions of credible therefore proving religion is credible though I will be primarily be focusing in point 2.

The BoP was on Con and he did zero debating which gives me debating points.

I didn't forfeit so conduct to me.

Pro FTW!

@missmedic Why don't you create a debate, rather than posting an argument here in the comments?

The contrary claims of competing religions are mutually exclusive and thus cannot all be true. Moreover, the testimonial "evidence" for the truth of any one religion is on an equal footing with the contrary testimonial evidence for any other religion. Since there are a multitude of competing religions, and thus a multitude of equally credible yet contrary testimonies, the probability that any given religion is true--and thus that any religion at all is true--is extraordinarily low. Consequently, it is highly probable that all religions are false. Although an argument from contrariety can be combined with an argument from religious confusion to demonstrate the probable nonexistence of God, it does not have to be; an argument from contrariety stands on its own as a strong argument for the falsity of all religions.
