Christians: You do realize it's not a game of "Musical Chairs", right?

Even if every single piece of evidence gathered by astronomers, paleontologists, cosmologists, etc. was proven a hoax tomorrow, and every single theory about evolution, the origins of life, the age of the universe, etc. were proven false, that still doesn't prove a single word of the Bible is true -- any more... show more Even if every single piece of evidence gathered by astronomers, paleontologists, cosmologists, etc. was proven a hoax tomorrow, and every single theory about evolution, the origins of life, the age of the universe, etc. were proven false, that still doesn't prove a single word of the Bible is true -- any more than any of the thousands of other mythologies humans have believed over the millennia would win by default.

Update: So by that way of "thinking", Tigerlilly, since Molly Brown (the Kathy Bates character in the movie "Titanic") was a real person, I guess Jack and Rose must have been real, too...right?
Update 2: EDIT: To clarify -- I didn't say that everything in the Bible MUST be false; just that, even if the theory of evolution, the Big Bang Theory, et al., are false, Christianity doesn't win by default.
