He's in front of your nose

Book One - the Knowledge of God the Creator
Chapter 5 - Knowledge of God shines forth in the fashioning of the universe and the continuing government of it
Section 1-10 - God manifested in his created works
Section 1 - The clarity of God's self-disclosure strips us of every excuse
The point of life is to know God (John 17:3).
We are also compelled to see God in His works of creation.
(Psalm 104:2-4; 11:4; Heb 11:3; Ps 19:2; Rom 1:19-20)
Anywhere you look, His traces are plain.

Section 2 - Divine wisdom displayed for all to see
Anyone can see God in creation, not just the well-educated.

Section 3 - Man as the loftiest proof of divine wisdom
Man contains several miracles and attributes of God, within himself.
Acts 17:27-28
Infants show His glory well enough to debate with atheists (Ps 8:2,4).
Paul quotes Aratus in Acts 17:28, that we are God's children.
