It seems that according to theists, the only requirement for something to be true is that it is written down somewhere. This being the case, then I have a little enigma for them. An angel of the LORD came to me and said "God now speaks through you. All you write with your hands and speak with your lips will be absolute truth. You are now God incarnate." After that, a glorious chorus of angels sang of my glory and then ascended back into heaven. After that, I wrote an entirely new holy book, one that supersedes all others because, as we now know, it is the true word of God. This would meet all the theistic requirements for being considered true. So go on, prove I am not god. Otherwise, begin worshiping and presenting gifts to me immediately. I accept cash, checks, delectable foods, etc. etc. Oh and no animal or human sacrifices please. Disemboweling your pet goat Zippy or your friend Joe will in fact, make me sad.

First you must die and rise from the dead, and have many people, from different religions write about you and your many miracles over hundreds of years.

This reminds me of the other question which claimed that mainly religious people make logical fallacies. This question is full of them and is based mainly on a "strawman" logical fallacy in "the only requirement for something to be true is that it is written down somewhere" is not remotly true for most religions.
