Evidence of God
Creation is proof of God. But it is proof that we cannot prove, it can only be known by faith. However, faith that is true is knowledge. Faith that is true has the same virtue, and in some instances more virtue than those things that are believed because they are undeniably evident. True faith is knowledge of God.

Evidence of knowledge

Eternity
If you wish to be in the non-smoking section in the afterlife, you must call in advance to reservations.
