I'd like to interject here that it is not a "fact" that 2+2=4.
It is a previously agreed-upon definition of the arithmetic operation we've agreed to refer to as "addition," and nothing more.
Hence, IAmson is twice correct when he claims to know God exists like he knows 2+2=4.
First, he "knows" it through faith.
Second, he "knows" it because he's defined God in the same way we've defined what is meant by 2+2=4.
