One of the regular mantras of Presubullshitters is that they can have thing revealed to them in such a way that they ‘can know them for sure’. They claim that they know they are correct because an Omniscient being has told them so.
But how can they be sure? Bottom line, they can’t. Yes, they may have a revelation that they believe to have been from the Creator of the Universe, but they have no way of checking – they are taking this revelation on faith. The only way one can know if the being revealing things to you is actually omniscient is to be omniscient oneself….otherwise they are merely believing what they are told, without any way of confirming that what they’ve been told is true, and the source of the ‘knowledge’ reliable.
Even if gods existed, which none of these people can actually prove, they would have no way of knowing whether their revelation had come from the right god – the Bible might have been written by Satan to steal souls from the actual creator, the god they worship might be omnimalevolent, there may be a cavalcade of gods and their revelation from one of the lesser, trickster, gods. The only way to address this problem would be to check, something they can’t do without being omniscient themselves.
So, next time you read a blog post or comment from a presubullshitter wherein he holds forth with extreme confidence about his views, remember – he cannot prove his god exists, he cannot know for certain that his revelation is trust worthy, and he eventually (when pressed) has to admit that his is entirely a faith position, unsupported by evidence. He may claim the contrary, but he is merely speaking from within a deep seated delusion. Never forget that he believes in a literal Adam and Eve, often a literal flood, and a literal resurrection of Jesus.
