Believe - by Tom Maguire
beliefs are just constructions of how the world works,
built up through our daily experience. There is no problem with
that unless we succumb to the
temptation to believe that our model really explains how
the world works.
Believe - by Michael Mallows
I think it must be nice, comforting, to believe in something
with absolute certainty. Then I think back to when I had the
comfort of No Doubt. How arrogant I was, how contemptuous of
others’ beliefs, how ready I was to tell them how wrong they
were (and how right I was!).
as a Belief System - by Aaron Davidson
of the greatest features of science is that it works as an
algorithmic process of belief revision. No scientific
belief being held can be said to be absolutely true, no matter
how convincing it is. This is how science compensates for the
small amount of faith it requires. . .
strange to me that people are still attempting to unify science
and religion. These two types of belief systems are entirely
incompatible. Someone holding both religious and scientific
beliefs cannot be thinking scientifically, as it is inconsistent.
