If so, then your creator must need a creator. Then that creator needs a creator. Then that one ... and so on. Infinite regression, and thus proving your creator is impossible.
No!
Unless you don't understand or know the meaning of God( YAWEH).
Any one that bears that title can never be created. Only YAHWEH has that title.

By stating it's "self evident" you destroy your entire case instantly.
Do you consider yourself an intelligent process of the Universe, or a non-intelligent one?

So you're asking for a holy book that talks extensively about the Flying Spaghetti Monster, right?
You're not familiar with the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster? It was written by Bobby Henderson and published by Villiard Press in 2006.
The central belief is that an invisible and undetectable Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe. Pirates are revered as the original Pastafarians (a portmanteau of pasta and Rastafarian),[9] and Henderson asserts that the steady decline in the number of pirates over the years has resulted in global warming.
So that's what you asked for.
Are you satisfied, or are you going to move the goalpost?
From your post, the said liar was never a christian. Christians always follow the tenets and precepts of the bible.

No, my existence is not self evident. Evidence of my existence includes, but is not limited to:

1. I can be touched.
2. I can be seen.
3. I can be tasted.
4. I can be smelled.
5. I can post responses to people.
6. I can be heard.

You need to learn what evidence is.

So if you have one exception to your "rule," then why is it there can be no other exceptions? Demonstrate the boundary, the mechanism that prevents anything else from coming into existence through natural processes.

Flying Spaghetti Monster?

Just another Science cult.

Actually, I think it was back in the 1800, there was a atheist's cult that worshiped Satan mock Christianity.

Nothing new under the sun.

Wow, you are really naive. It's actually not even a belief, it's an analogy that demonstrates the folly of your religious nonsense. Just wow, I never thought anyone could be as ignorant as you, no one actually believes there is a FSM.

This was covered before...the concept is that God created time and space...therefore he is not subject to the limitation of time and space.
God would be of an infinite nature...or immortal.
God created all matter that has movement and time is just a manmade idea of measuring things that move.

That wasn't the question.The question was...

Do you consider yourself an intelligent process of the Universe, or a non-intelligent one?

Well the Atheist cult that worshiped Satan, said they didn't believe in Satan either...they said it was set up to mock Christianity.

Your wording is ambiguous, to the point that it can mean anything, literally anything the person wants. So I did answer your question, I answered your question on how I read it.

This story sounds like thousands of other ones we had heard over the years. You have photos or movies maybe? Were you using??
Give your report to MUFON, see if they can help you.
MUFON? Might as well talk to the a manikin. Humans need to realize whats out there in the cosmos. Think, to many galaxies to count...Hello!Earth is just one planet out of infinity. The odds that humans were engineered by an advanced civilization is real. Listen, the Holy Ghost story had a good run. The primitive human animal will destroy this little planet because the rich and powerful are blinded by greed and corruption to realize the truth. Its like drug addicts, they think it cant happen to me, I'm to smart for that result......Anyway, our experience was real, we both saw the same thing. We were also like you and all the others. Once you do encounter the other side you to will understand. We now know the truth. The real ghost have shown us their world. Now, it all makes sense!The first encounter I had a witness. The second time I was alone, its was just as real as the first time. I don't expect you to believe, that's not why we are telling our experience. We understand why they don't want primitives in their world. They created all earth life. The human animal will never accept the truth. They planted the God seed and they knew it would confuse the animal.....and it worked, is working and will always work. Look around at society, people are struggling with everyday life. Pill popping is at epidemic levels. How do you think humans would handle the truth? They could not!
