    Self evident. I suppose to oneself it is.

    Just not to another.

    once you realize everything is happening for a reason and his name is Jesus Christ, you and God become self-evident.

    That sounds a lot more like confirmation bias.

    It depends on your definition of God.

    I believe that it is self evident that in order for anything to exist, something must be eternal.

    How would you properly support your claim then? Do you have anything more than confirmation bias, because right now with all of the waddling and quacking going on it looks like we have a duck.

    No. If you want to try to use the Bible then you have a huge burden of proof that no Christian has ever been able to meet. Quotes from religious books are not evidence.

    faith is faith, if you don't have it, it's because you've not been illuminated as of yet.
    i actually prefer people not believe me, i like relishing in my pearls alone. with my cat, too.

    If God is truly within, the through wise introspection through meditation, God should be self evident.

    Only IF self IS the image of god. IF self ISN'T the image of god then it wouldn't be self-evident.

    Faith is not a pathway to the truth. It appears to be merely a comforting sort of confirmation bias.

    You may have faith, I have knowledge and knowledge trumps both faith and belief.

    Odd isn't it that people that make these claims can never properly support them. Why, it is almost as if they are completely false.

    you have a limited standard level of detail, the type adopted by decaying mortals on the way to the morgue.
    not interested.
