Darwin Time for Atheism

One can discover God by doing a simple inventory of (1) the assumptions we use to recognize an object as a person and (2) the assumptions that the principles of thought are authoritative, ultimate, adequate, universal, objective, and relate crucially to persons.

These assumptions are treated as a single personal object because we apply them to persons (ourselves, for example), and because we must assume them as a comprehensive integral unit of ultimate ruling factors that arbitrate what is true and what is real.

We also assume an ideal of personhood in using that set of ultimate interrelated assumptions through which we think.
And an ideal of personhood is an ideal person.
