A belief can be true based on scientific fact, or it can be false based on scientific fact. But a belief is still a belief. On the other hand, there are beliefs that can't be disproven, at least not as of yet. And these are the beliefs I wanna dig a little deeper into. Christianity for example, no one alive today, was alive during the time period in which Jesus died and apparently resurrected. Due to the fact that I wasn't there, and can do as much research on it as humanly possible, I still can't know for certain if Jesus truly did come back to life. Therefore, based on logic, who am I to say (as well as others) that this is false?
In a world where possibilities are endless and we're constantly finding that our original ideas are false and/or different from what we thought they were, how can one say that something such as the example I've provided based on Jesus' ressurection is false OR true? What I'm saying is, it's perfectly acceptable to believe in something, but isn't it more acceptable to believe in the fact that something and almost anything can be both true as well as false?
Didn't really get to articulate myself as much as I'd hoped but I guess I'll let you guys debate on this while I organize my thoughts and think this through a little more.
