To Be Aware Of Ourselves

Do not we all know that our minds are inclined by indwelling conscience to that simple acknowledgement – God is – and that to deny this would be to deny our own rationality? Nay, without this attribute, we would be reduced below the lowest rank of beings, have no dignity and no honor, and not even be aware of ourselves! This factor, so clearly set forth in us all with unshakably established testimony, can it ever be rational to dissent from?
