Well that's very accepting of you... only Christianity states that the those who do not believe in Jesus will be damned for eternity does it not? Why would God lead others astray? Or is Christianity only broadly true, as in only the parts about love and the nice bits are true and all the stuff about lakes of fire is poppycock?

I don't know how accurate the OT was, but I know some of the NT is true. If the Crucifixion is said to be false, I would be very skeptical indeed, because my own experience tells me otherwise. If it were proven without doubt, I would probably just believe in God as a universal energy. If it was proven there is no God or afterlife I would just be depressed and nihilistic for my remaining time here.
What in the NT is true? You seem to not to know what the so called OT and the so called NT are.

I'm an atheist so nothing would happen to me, however i believe that your entire post is a logical fallacy. No matter what evidence is presented there will always be those who have faith. Consider Evolution, it is beyond a doubt that Evolution occurs, the evidence is overwhelming and yet we still see people saying "god gone and dunnit".
Theres no way you will stop some people believing in the magic man, all that can be hoped for is that these people don't let their religion get in the way of human development.

Pascal's wager is a great answer to your question and I agree with him
"Belief is a wise wager. Granted that faith cannot be proved, what harm will come to you if you gamble on its truth and it proves false? If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing."

So, What happens to you if/when religion is proven false?
How would your life be impacted? Would you still go to your local church? Would you still pray? Would you find more value in this life (its all you got), or less
