    I think it may be more of a notion of 'something more', or 'seeing through' rather than being attached to a specific religion. I think that most people in the course of their lives ask themselves this question, or look to something greater. Is it better for the 'something more' not to be discovered?

    Hi, pleased to see that I am the first to welcome you to sciforums!

    Welcome!

    Yeah, I think it might be better for the 'something more' to not be discovered.

    It might even be essential that it is not discovered.

    That would not be believing in it, but simply mulling it over in your head, it has nothing to do with belief. I repeat you do not switch belief on and off.
    Exactly, you should only belief something with direct evidence, that is why you would not sometimes belief in Christianity.
    Yes we all have belief based on our imagination, which brings us back to mulling a thing over to decide if it is true or not. it is not belief and then no belief.
    No not of emotion, animals are sentient, but you need knowledge for emotions, you cant hurt a Deer's feeling. but you can harm it. there is a huge difference.



    Wow you lier.

    And I repeat, that is not what I said! Belief comes naturally, not something that you switch on and off.

    Why would you say that you believe in direct evidence, you know for a fact that it is true! That's why belief in that sense has a much broader purpouse than just scientific facts.

    It can very well be belief then not belief, since new ideas can arise so that you need to correct yourself, belief is fluid - not fixed. When you think about a concept, you can either disbelieve it or believe it, it's not something you decide first hand, but given the right arguments you can feel either belief or disbelief. Then it is for you to decide what makes the most meaning to you.

    Sentience is the ability to feel or perceive subjectively. There are discussions on whether animals are sentient (if they suffer).

    Don't accuse me of lying. I recognize that the poll question seem absurd. But I also see that there is more to it than that.
