    I don't think there would be a question if he were obvious. That's kind of the definition of obvious.

    Without faith you have no litmus test, to test the truth with. For hope faith judges life, for confidence faith judges the self, for trust faith judges the truth.

    Lol, the truth doesn't need to be tested, it was tested and then became the truth. Faith is what needs to be tested before it can become truth.

    Faith is what test the truth thus creating trust.

    If you understood truth, you wouldn't need faith, truth is trust. Faith is useless.

    Really? After 50 posts, how much more potential did it have?

    Seattle felt that it had very little. Sea is very intuitive that way.

    If you understood truth it would be an example of faith. Anyhow, faith as an absolute is fundamental to life.

    So is scientific knowledge and facts like Darwinism and the theory of evolution.
    Get your nose out of the mythical crap, written by obscure men in an obscure age, in the mythical bible you have your head buried in and learn some science.

    I have my own religion in the works, and it's science friendly.

    Okay. But that original , transcendent cause, is why everything occurs the way it does.
    Who is to say it was chance?
    None of us know. We only say it was chance, because we cannot fathom the original cause that lead to that encounter.
    Yes.

    Easily perceived or understood; clear, self-evident, or apparent. Based on the numbers who think God is obvious, I would have to conclude God is obvious.

    A goalpost shifter I see.
    How does one, surround oneself, with truth?
    And while we’re at it. Where does truth come from?
