I believe that everybody can have certainty in the existence of God. Not just a god but specifically the god of the Bible. I believe that this ultimate reality contains absolute truths that man cannot account for without the existence of a god. The god of the Bible however is the only god out of the multitude of options available that has the capacity to be the creator of this ultimate reality. An ultimate reality that is logical must have God as a precondition to account for the impossibility of the contrary. We will explore the Transcendental Argument for God and compare it to the Cosmological Argument for God. Next we will look for apologetic arguments for topics such as other gods, Genesis and the flood, the theophanies, the voracity of the Old and the New Testaments, and Early Church history.

Absolute Existence:

You absolutely exist. René Descartes said, “I think, therefore I am.” This is true; but why? Think about it for a minute. Can you disprove you exist? If you say no, then you absolutely exist. If you say yes then i’ll tell you it's impossible to disprove you exist. You know you exist because you have thoughts, those thoughts come from your mind and will. It follows that in order for you to disprove you exist you must first presuppose you exist in order to make any argument. Your first thought before you even open your mouth requires your will, mind and being to be real. Through reason we can conclude you absolutely exist.

Absolute Truth:

There are no absolute truths. Say this statement out loud. This statement is absurd because; if there are no absolute truths how could the statement there are no absolute truths be absolutely true? To say, there are no absolutes: is to say that there are no independent universal truths. All truths are therefore dependent. The truth is relative makes exactly this claim. Then the statements become dependent on themselves. The truth is relative is a relative truth in of itself so it's a self refuting statement. There are no absolutes is a contradictory statement because the statement itself would have to be absolutely true to claim there are no absolute truths so it becomes self refuting. We can come to the conclusion that there is absolute truth in our ultimate reality through reason.

Absolute Logic and Reason:

How do we conclude a fact? If a fact is a conclusion we reach, we must reach this fact through evidence. Evidence correlates with facts because we can use reason to understand the correlation. It is true that people have different standards when it comes to how evidence correlates with fact which can result in different facts. The differences across people in how we reason are biological and environmental. This is how many come to the conclusion fact and truth are subjective. But the preeminent principle above both human reason and facts is logic. The laws of logic are immaterial rules that govern the boundaries of our reasoning. We can’t think outside of logic itself. Logic is the principle which gives us a consistent connection between fact and reason. This principle therefore makes the connection between fact and reason intelligible. It's obvious that you as an individual can connect facts with evidence and evidence with reason. You understand what I'm writing in this paragraph because you learned English, the English language has rules and an alphabet which allows letters to form words, words to form sentences, sentences ordered by rules and conventions. Being able to autonomously follow this chain back to reason means you presuppose and ultimate reality a priori. This means without even knowing about it you follow the absolute principle of logic to reasonably correlate evidence with facts. If the only possible way you can know truth or fact is through logic, and logic consistently makes reality intelligible to the human mind, it means the laws of logic are an absolute truth in our ultimate reality.
