When you are looking at your receiving addresses. Are all those addresses valid? As in, can any one of those addresses be given to someone to accept some bitcoins?

Thanks in advance

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

By default, the client displays a new receiving address for you each time you receive BTC at one of your other addresses. This is for your benefit in case you prefer that it not be obvious to others on the network how much BTC is going into your balance. But like mewantsbitcoins said, all the receiving addresses in your wallet remain valid, and some people prefer to keep all their BTC at one receiving address.
