Christianity is a religion that involves events are claimed to have happened but can not be proved. People who practice Christianity live by different morals code. Throughout the year of doing my own research into Christianity and notice most of it is contradictory. My research has proved that the high power of “God” cannot exist. Therefore Christianity is a fundamentally flawed religion.

It’s no secret that Christians and science have had and will forever have an ongoing debate. As a Christian, you are taught to disregard science and progress. Instead, the Bible which is seen in “god’s word” is held as the only truth. But when scientific discoveries contradict biblical stories the Christians are supposed to ignore the scientific view. At the same time. Yet Christians are happy when scientific discovery benefits them. Christians own technology, go to a doctor and then say that science is nonsensical. Many Christians refuse to acknowledge psychotherapy for mental problems, seeing it as a satanic worship. They rely on prayers. Some even choose not to go to the doctor for ill health. Unfortunately, people miss out on the benefits of both modern medicine but will pray for healing while the people they care about suffer and die. Christianity has fought against the scientific progress of all kind. The biggest problem with Christianity’s never ending the fight against science. Christianity says that science set out to disprove Christian intentions. But all science wants to do is find out more about the world. Christianity doesn't give scientific discovery any consideration. By some measure of hypocrisy, Christians insist that unbelievers explore their faith with an open mind, but do not look into the science to improve their own lives.

According to the Bible, the events that had occurred are so miraculous. One being the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Things such as stopping of the sun (Joshua 10:12-14), the reversal of the sun's course (Isaiah 38:7-8), the resurrection of the saints. The Christian Bible is very contradictory but just because of today's beliefs, but in itself. Today's belief is that all people are created equal, and Christians submit that their god is the same belief. Modern Christians believe that god loves everyone and that they are all equal. However, after Adam and Eve ate from the tree forbidden, “God” said to Eve "I will intensify the pangs of your childbearing; in pain shall you bring forth children. Yet your urge shall be for your husband, and he shall be your master." (Genesis 3:16). This tells us that, according to the Christian religion, women shall naturally be dominated by men. This kind of behavior that shows everyone isn't made equally.

Women are repeatedly treated like objects in the Bible. According to the bible, women should be quite in gatherings. This a form of having them be submissive. “If they want to learn anything, they should ask their husbands at home. It is a disgrace when a woman speaks in the assembly." (1 Corinthians 14:34-35). "Man was not made from woman but woman from man. Neither was man created for woman but woman for man. For this reason, a woman ought to have a sign of submission on her head." (1 Corinthians 11:8-10).

The thing that holds Christianity together is belief. Belief can be used for any religion. Christianity teaches thing that are not real. Christianity is built off of blind faith. Through Christianity, you're taught certain rules of life and do certain things because the Bible says so. But not once has the Bible or a peace gave actual evidence to back what is being learned. Remember back to when you first started adding in math. If you're told you 1+1= 3, you would have seconded guessed or did anything on your own to make sure it was right because the teacher's job is to teach you things that are correct. Christianity is sorta the same way, you're told one thing and never really confirm if it's correct because you expect it to be true. The stories of what Jesus and others experienced can suggest God was seen and spoke to them. There is no way to say he didn't, but there is also no way to prove these stories. Their religion is based on people's stories and recollections, as something others cannot disprove.

There's also a huge flaw with the theory of sin. It is the number one thing Christians are taught to accept. If you sin you are flawed in the eyes of “God”. This is because a woman named Eve was tricked by a talking snake into eating magical fruit. The original sin is why Christians are told to never ever question god. The theory of sin is that one's person's sin is passed onto the next. The famous story of Jesus dying for “our” sin. If humans believe that they are flawed and imperfect because if the sin of themselves and others who is this “God” making sin available to us? It's almost like a trap and if we are to accept that we cannot possibly figure out his ways because they are so beyond us. If you really do your research it is easy to see what the people (humans) that wrote the Bible in “God's name were just trying to scare people. A giant talking snake, magical fruit these are element of the supernatural tied in so it appears to have some type of higher power being involved.

Another flaw is that Christianity denies the acceptance of all other religions. “God,” says that Judaism will be the “one eternal and exclusive religion”. “Has any people heard the voice of God speaking from amidst fire as you have heard, and lived? Or has God miraculously come to select one nation from others with miracles, signs, and wonders, and with war, and a mighty hand and an outstretched arm and with great awesome deeds, as all that Hashem your God did for you in Egypt in front of your eyes?”(Deuteronomy, 4:33-34). In this scripture, Moses reminds the Jewish people of their selection. God selected the Jews of all nations. This was never performed
