    Great question. Prepare for a storm made of nothing but sheer handwaving.

    It's not bad to ask God for proof. You can literally do it by praying.
    Asking people for proof is however nonsensical

      Isn't there some verse in the OT about never testing God? Isn't asking him for signs/proof a test?

    When did this happen? Last I checked, God didn't need to prove himself to anyone, being God and all. The demonstrations of his power weren't about "proving" anything, they were merely the enactments of his will.

      Burning bush, lighting the fire for Elias and other "miracles"

      Not an argument. Exactly the type of deflecting I'd expect from a brain damaged israelitelover.

      Well, not anti miracles, but in the sense that "I've come not to do miracles, but my missions is bigger and different"

    Yet another thread trying to refute Christianity without knowing enough about it to do so.
    >A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it.
    Thread over, OP's entire premise is just wrong, so there's nothing else to say.
