    Christian God and miracles are called real, same things in other religions are called mythology why?

    It depends on the source of information really.  I think it's more common for us to hear about "Christian miracles" over "Hindu miracles"

    The Christian god is supposed to be the only true god. What scriptures of other religion say is therefore deemed as stories, myths, wisdom, lies and so on. For Christians, "The word of God" tells "The truth". If you're not a Christian, you may call that "prejudice". If you are, you may call stories that look like myths "The truth". It depends on who you think you are, really.

    The arogance of 'we are right everyone else is wrong.'   It is probable that, that sort of arogance exists within all other religions too, and all coming to the truth that miracles are mythology.

    Only Christians believe that their designated miracles are real.  All other religions do the same. 
    Anthropology states (and probably most correctly) that religions themselves are centered on superstition, mysticism, and magic.
    I have stated many times that not ALL religions can be the true religion above all else, therefore this concludes that none of them are real, true, or above all others.
    One cannot refute logic, or reality. 
    We MUST stop this bickering about religion and concentrate on spirituality.  God is NOT a religion.

      I hear ya!
      It's only the true religion for those who believe it's the only true religion.

    i have never said any miracle is real regardless of the religion they fall under. there has never and never will be a true miracle as claimed by any religion. sure things occur that can't be explained in simple terms but the term "miracle" is for the simple minded. anyone with half a brain knows that miracles are a joke.

    Miracles are undisclosed science, flying was considered a miracle at one time. As for the direct answer I would have to believe it's because people believe what is told to them without question, Christian children are indoctrinated at a young age of a place called hell if they don't believe. One must come to their own realizations to really understand anything, not someone else's. We're still pretty under evolved as a race considering we still have wars and a monetary system of material based success.

    Perhaps your experience is too limited. Personally, I think all miracles are potentially real. The flying Buddhist monks, like those supposedly observed by Marco Polo. Jesus walking on water, and Peter, too.

    I've experienced my own miracles, one comparable to Moses parting the sea.

    The problem with most people is that they think they are their Homo sapiens body and that restricts their abilities.
