     Yes, and the existance of absolute certainty in consciousness
is itself possible evidence that consciousness is God-stuff.

     I am absolutely certain I exist and care.

     Some people are incapable of absolute certainty.

     Or they have 'absolute' certainty of things that are false.

     Some say Maybe I am just a hallucination.  Maybe I just
THINK I exist.

     These people are CERTAIN they can not be CERTAIN of anything.

     Their minds do not function.

     If you are uncertain you exist and care, then you are also
uncertain that others exist and can be hurt.

     Wouldn't you rather be around someone who had certain contact
with their own existance and yours?

     People who deny the existance of certainty have developed this
condition on purpose in order to deny certainty of being CAUSE.
They do not want to admit they CHOSE to do something and DID it.
So they say, Maybe I don't exist, maybe it didn't happen, maybe you
can not know anything for sure.  Maybe, maybe, maybe...

     They dig their own pit.  Push them in.
