Quare: Those of us who do not have absolute epistemic certainty in the truth of Catholicism are not formally Catholic, right? 

What is a person to do, if they have gone to Mass for 40 years, made around 2000 holy communions, around 200 confessions, was confirmed, has consciously tried to avoid deliberate venial sin for years, has done daily mental prayer for over a decade....and yet still does not have absolute epistemic certainty in the truth of his faith?  Do you really believe, Quare, that such a person should stop doing all of it, and keep the whole Catholic thing on ice until he receives the illumination of epistemic certainty?
