GOD'S CHARACTER OF TRUTH EXPRESSED IN CREATION.
Presuppositional apologetics have revolutionized the way I view life and creation. I truly see how everyone lives as though God is real and true, but there are those who deny it, and must continually suppress God's reality. In part one, I will attempt to simplify a complex philosophical study, epistemology. In part two, I will attempt to apply epistemology and will show the bankrupt thinking of atheists
First, I want to define keywords to avoid equivocation, a logical fallacy. At times, I will use the redundant phrase: “100% guaranteed certain” to make abundantly clear my meaning. Many Atheists equivocate or change the meaning of this word to mean other than it's most common usage.

I don't like definitions which includes the word or root being defined, so I will use the correspondence theory; that which corresponds to reality, or that which God thinks.
