“Jamie, how do I know I actually exist?” Mandy asked.

“Who’s asking ?” Jamie giggled, Mandy hitting him .

“Science can’t disprove Solipsism: that only your mind exists, and everything else isn’t just an illusion,” Jamie continued, “nor Brain in a Vat: that a mad scientist has taken your brain, and is prodding it.”

“Nor that the past didn’t happen [but instead, you were created five seconds ago with all thoughts in place],” Mandy continued, “but you’d be crazy to think that!”

“The axioms of mathematics and logic, introspection of one’s own conscious sight, hearing, thoughts, feelings, right and wrong, beautiful and ugly,” Jamie continued, “all things not falsifiable, and hence unscientific.”

“The statement ‘science is the only way to acquire knowledge’ is in and of itself, self-refuting,” Mandy continued, “You can’t use science, to prove, that science is the only way to acquire knowledge.”

“Philosophers call these beliefs ‘properly basic beliefs,” Blaire remarked, “In the same way, God can be immediately experienced, wholly apart from argument.”

“God does not exist in arguments for God, or even the Bible: He is found in reality,” Mandy continued quoting John 5:39-40, "You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life… yet you refuse to come to me to have life."
