Do You know That God Exists? p5
The question is, "what do 'fiducial knowledge' and 'evidentiary knowledge' have to do with the question 'DO YOU KNOW That GOD EXISTS?'"
There are innumerable empirical evidences that provide "evidentiary knowledge."
The heavens with the sun, moon and stars declare to all men everywhere in the world the wisdom and orderly design of an all-wise Designer. Did it just happen by accident or coincidence that the sun is 93 million miles from the Earth? If the sun were closer, the Earth would burn; if farther away, it would be a ball of ice. Did it just happen by accident or coincidence that the moon is 238,700 miles from the Earth? That the moon is in the exact position to control the tides and keep them from inundating or flooding Earth Did the consistency of time for each day happen by accident or coincidence?
How is it that by that consistency man was able to design a watch dividing each day into 24 equal parts?
What about the design of the world in such a way that man and every creature will have provisions for life. The rain falls to the Earth, it waters the land, provides crops, goes into the creeks, rivers, and oceans, evaporates and then is picked up by the clouds and is once again deposited upon the Earth in the form of rain. The seasons were designed to provide for man.
IMAGINE A WORLD IN WHICH THE SEASONS HAD NO ORDER! How could man survive?

God is good, I love you all. In the name of the King.
