Belief

« Glossary Index

Trust, faith, or confidence in someone or something.

Everyone has beliefs that something is the case, and it is difficult to substantiate fact or truth, even within scientific endeavor.

“It is still a metaphysical faith on which our faith in science rests—that even we ‘knowers’ of today, we godless anti-metaphysicians still take our fire too, from the flame lit by the thousand-year old faith, the faith which was also Plato’s faith, that Truth exists; that Truth is ‘Divine'”

(Frederick Nietzche)
