What amount of contrary evidence would it take to get you to change your religion?
Since only one of the thousands of different world religions could be correct...chances are your religion is false. Would any amount of solid proof conviince you to change your religion?
It is very difficult to change the religion. Per say, one who spends his or her child hood with a family and later comes to know that they are not their parents and the new family enter as the real family, the situation could be worst for him/her. Finally moves with the first family only.
Like wise, switching over from the religion which we followed, practiced, lived from the childhood because of some reasons, would be very difficult and one could feel discomfort on it.
Few people are moving from one to another, may be because of some financial gains or family compulsions for marriage or adoption etc, but still they will have the belief on the original where they started learning. It is purely psychological issue.
Since I literally studied every major world religion for 8 years and concluded not Christianity but the Bible is a divinely inspired book--(hypothetically speaking) only God saying to me in person "The Bible is false. It's not my words." would I change.
But they're a catch-22 with that. Since I'm firmly convinced the Bible is spiritual testimony I doubt 100% that its false. So chances are the Bible isn't fraud in my eyes.
In fact I wrote answer around here showing how it beats out other alleged sacred texts.
I'd first have to be convinced that the concept of "religion" is viable at all. The idea itself suggests exceptionalism and mechanisms for non-exclusion for some. If there is a God–and I believe there is, although quite a different one from the superhuman version most fantasize about–this supreme force or being will have no interest in picking and choosing favorites among the enormous varieties of an evolving universe.

The mass of the people are forced to believe into certain religions by ways of culture, traditions, family & now the media. I challenge you to ask yourself, are you truly practing your religion because of your true faith? Or is it because it's all you've ever known?
