Christianity is true for multiple reasons:
1.) Have you ever wondered how the Universe was created? The chances of there not being a God and still a Universe is extremely low.
2.) Your DNA is really advanced, in fact, much more advanced than anything else in the World
3.) Everything that happens in this world has a reason. At this point in the Argument, you may be asking, "So what makes Christianity True?" If you check from the beginning, there has been many Prophets in the world who have done many miracles. All of them has said they were not the Messiah. But, when Jesus came, he alone admitted his identity as the Messiah, and proved it many times.

first off note I do not make a claim my claim is that you can not say god is true my stance is not god is false. this is the first thing you must realize about every agnostic atheist( which is most atheists).

so how the universe was made? well we actually know that its called the big bang. the chances are not a thing science uses as an argument because science only says something is true if there is 0 doubt it is true see how science works is a claim is made. then we work to disprove the null ( which is the reverse usually that the claim is false) if we can no prove for certain the null is false we accept the null.

advanced? that word has no meaning unless you compare it to something else are you saying other substances? because at the end of the day DNA is the start of life but is not life. this is how abiotic genesis works. a simple genetic material, RNA, formed and RNA competed until they came together giving them better chance to continue to be around forming cells and eventually evolution continued and we got all life. now if someone deigned DNA why does it have error? in fact did you know that's why we currently can't live forever because even the DNA you have now has error in it as you live longer the ends which we know are junk used to shield the important DNA from error becomes too small to keep it safe. so then these errors start harming our DNA and those will eventually kill you no mater what

so your argument is prophets? well lets just put this out did you know that in the old testament there is a mistranslation? when it said the messiah was born of a virgin the word that it should have young woman. now think a god would A) never make that mistake and B) he would not necessarily apply to the mistaken version. now on the topic of Jesus's miracles here is a possibility hear me out that the disciples actually just had the old testament and just made sure Jesus met all the requirements

your move...

Here, Let me start with this:
1.) Google who founded the Big Bang Theory and ask yourself this question: How was it formed? There is only 3 ways the Universe could have started: 1.) A superior being put the Big Bang Theory into place, 2.) the Big Bang created itself with no rhyme or reason, or 3.) There was no Big Bang Theory (The Universe has always existed
2.) Think about it this way, compare DNA to anything a human has ever created. Hint: it is much, much more complex. Could DNA have created itself? At first, Scientist believed DNA was quite simple, but now, we know just how difficult it is. Without help, would something as advanced be formed?
3.) How is that a mistake? Mary was both a young women and a virgin. You have seen multiple times in Science and History what we refer to as Miracles. They just happen; something which science can not just explain. It is nearly impossible to say how Mary was also a Virgin (although it may be because of the Holy Spirit, not man), but you are correct in which she was a young women.

ok so first off the big bang is the best explanation we have no one said it is perfect
second thing we never claimed we made DNA DNA made DNA you know what is a huge amount more complex than DNA? a multi cellular organism. and guess what evolution made those so whats to say it can't make DNA better
3rd off there are other places I am sure we can find where you don't even take your own book so seriously as you do when claiming it proves god
Exodus 21:20-21English Standard Version (ESV)

20 "When a man strikes his slave, male or female, with a rod and the slave dies under his hand, he shall be avenged. 21 But if the slave survives a day or two, he is not to be avenged, for the slave is his money.
boom slavery
Deuteronomy 25:11
When two men are fighting and the wife of one of them intervenes to drag her husband clear of his opponent, if she puts out her hand and catches hold of the man by his privates, you must cut off her hand and show her no mercy.
boom stoning people to death
so if this book is so holy and everything in it true why are you not cutting peoples hands off for cheat

sorry this is such a lame response I am tired and also due to the nature of atheism my points do not need much behind them I simply need to prove your god can not be proven true without a doubt

Yes, Evolution may be a possibility. But how can it simply even start? Unless you can say how things can create themselves, my answer is "God did it." This applies to everything in which you simply can not prove 100% scientifically. Sorry, but unless you can prove something with obvious science, then God simply made it. Also, we do not take the whole entire bible in the literal interpretation. The only time you will ever see this is with either Fundamentalist, or Atheist. About the lame response: like I said, if you can not prove every single step in which the process occurred, all a Theist is going to have to say is "God did it."

@Jawz336, Imagine this: Somebody walks into a hospital to a patient who had a 0% chance of survival. All of a sudden, they say a couple of words and the person is perfectly fine and walks out the next day. What had happened?

One thing that I think more people need to realize is that lack of knowledge doesn"t equal God. In modern times, our science is pretty amazing, but there is still a lot of things we don"t know. The Big Bang is only a theory, yes, but so is gravity. We may not know what caused the Big Bang, or of the Big Bang is even the correct theory, but, that doesn"t mean it"s completely wrong. It"s just that our modern science isn"t yet advanced enough to conclusively say how the universe came into existence with 100% certainty.

You guys are arguing the wrong debate
Christianity is taking on the quality or character of teachings of Jesus
Are you guys arguing if the religion itself as a whole is true?
