Religions and ideologies cannot be proved

One thing I’ve learnt: You can’t prove a religion to be true. And those basing their religion on so called proofs are ultimately living on delusions. Looking for proof could even be dangerous as Leonard Cohen sings in his song ”Hallelujah”:
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah
A second thing I’ve learnt: You can’t prove any ideology or any other world- or life-view either. … And of course, that goes for the view I’m putting forth here and now.
So all we can do is lean on assumptions.
I still talk to God, but I don’t demand any proof anymore.
