It is true that sometimes rarely we wonder whether we are in a dream or in objective reality, but we always in the course of a dream sooner than later notice that we are dreaming, and wake up into the reality of our existence outside of dreams.

Of course I am not insisting that you bang your nose against a concrete wall, there are other ways to assure to yourselves that you do exist, and that is for examples, harmless ones, like you can kiss your babies, in this way you at the same time assure yourselves that your baby or babies exist.
Do you get my drift?
Or you want to insist that there is no absolute certainty that you exist, in which case for writing here, you are wasting your time and labor - and conducting yourselves illogically, because you are not sure that your posts here will be read by anyone here.

Tacitus's "among the gods Mercury is the one they principally worship" is an exact quote from Julius Caesar's Commentarii de Bello Gallico (1st century BCE) in which Caesar is referring to the Gauls and not the Germanic peoples. Regarding the Germanic peoples, Caesar states: "[T]hey consider the gods only the ones that they can see, the Sun, Fire and the Moon", which scholars reject as clearly mistaken, regardless of what may have led to the statement.

Would that mean the dream exists and we exist in the dream?
I just wasted two minutes posting this comment in it.
"And Jesus said unto them, 'Who do you say that I am?'
And they replied, 'You are the eschatological manifestation of the ground of our being, the kerygma in which we find the ultimate meaning of our interpersonal relationship.'
And Jesus said: 'What'?"
The following was found among the graffiti on a wall at St. John's University:
And Jesus Said, "What?"

f God truly is the inspiration behind this purportedly divine declaration to the world, he shows absolutely no interest in its understandability or accuracy in astronomy, cosmology, zoology, botany, anthropology, geology, ecology, geography, physiology (just examine the bible).
Nothing can be more detrimental to the authenticity of a statement than contradictory phenomena that we readily observe and experience. With no other evidence to consider, these natural manifestations should always override what we might hope and think to be correct explanations for unignorable discrepancies. Such is the power of science and reason. They are the impartial pursuit of an answer to a question, not the search for supplements to a predetermined answer.
