The problem, magicmiles, is that your belief could be completely and totally wrong, as you admitted.  You don't have any way to confirm whether it's correct; everything you can reasonably draw on as support is fundamentally drawn from a belief that you can't be sure is true at all, whether it's yours or someone else's.  For example, you cited the Bible to support your belief, but you can't show proof that the Bible is anything more than human writings, not divinely-inspired at all.

Do you see the problem here?  You're basing your belief that your god has revealed himself to everyone on a house of cards, belief stacked on belief stacked on belief.
