Strongly disagree. It is eminently possible to have such convictions* when it comes to specific, well-defined claims. There just happens to be a serious lack of specific, well-defined religious claims.

*Barring, of course, the related-but-only-distantly argument as to whether any knowledge can ever be considered certain.

Yep. As far as the God of the Abrahamic religions, it is possible to prove them false. It is easy to do and doesn't even take that much intellect if one accepts reason as a means to knowledge.
