To atheists, how do you know or test that you are rejecting actual Christianity, and not rejecting someone's false interpretation?

Just about every Christian I converse with tells me that I carry too much baggage from false teachers, and the Christian God is independent of crazy stuff like creationism, predestination etc.. and they are just man made ideas not from God

    All interpretations of Christianity have one thing in common: there is a creator god. That by itself is being rejected by atheists. So it does not matter which interpretation is being rejected.

    How do you know or test that you are rejecting actual Zeus, or actual Odin, and not rejecting someone's false interpretation?

    Not for me to justify my non-belief in your myths - it's for you to prove they are right. Stop shifting the burden of proof.

    Yeah, I've been told that too.

    The fact is, it's all batshit crazy.

    The bible is the result of mad men.

    Nobody gives 1-flying f~ck. 

    Atheists are fully aware that 

    Existence does not need 'religious' interpretation. 

    False interpretation + Rejection = Religion 

    No harm ... no foul.

    Jesus prayed in John 17 that all his followers would be 'as one' so that the world would know that he was sent by God. Why would God allow all these man made ideas to discredit him?

    Curiously the Abrahamic god that Christians worships got other religions that are not Christianity...and even Christians got many branches and hundreds of denominations... just to show how real and correct interpretations theist can do.

    So we must admit that religions are a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality and the very idea of gods is a product of the human imagination.

    The same way you test to see who is a witch - Throw them in a pool and if the sink they're a witch .

     Throw a Christian into a pool and if they don't get spirit baptized and start speaking in strange tongues and sound like an African being chased by an Elephant they're fake christians

    Have you ever studied christianity?

    The entire thing is absurd and dishonest.

    There is no other 'interpretation', just read their rhetoric, then you'd know.
