[In response to the statement that saying a book can be used to prove itself is circular logic and doesn't work]

All logic is circular. Logic relies on unproven premises or "presuppositions."

The Christian presupposition is "In the beginning God ..."

Everything else is argued from that.

Can you think of a presupposition that has a better chance of being non-circular?

If you try to prove the premises, you are engaging in circular logic.

In stating that "a self-contained argument does not prove itself" you too are using a circular argument!

If an argument does not prove itself, then what does?
