What stuff do you believe in even though you dont have evidence and are atheist? I believe in aliens and some sort of afterlife. I also believe theres a 4th density that has different laws of physics. The 4th density im talking about is not about time. I believe theres alot of stuff the universe can do that would seem supernatural. I believe in magic and supernatural like powers that humans arent capable of.

I reason to be healthy in all aspects of life.  If you reason, does it take you somewhere?  Do you have hope for something, do you hope for a reason.  Do you have what you reasoned for or do you need what you reason for?  Have you ever been lied to and felt discomfort by it?  What is your preferences and do you want someone else to take that away from you?  You may reason anything you want and you may get it and you may not.  Who is to prophetize this for you?
I'm an absolute materialist.  If you can't measure it, it's meaningless.

Hm. I don't really believe in anything supernatural unless you mean the power of the human mind. Not in the bending spoons bs, but like "Doctor told me I can't walk again. Well i'm going to do everything he tells me medically and do physical therapy". A year later you can walk with a cane. I think that's pretty amazing.

I believe in love, but who doesn't?

 

I believe in my cat knowing what I am saying and choosing not to listen. But does he have a soul? Nope.

...and that reminds me of Rainbow Bridge. There's a Rainbow Bridge in Norse mythology but I mean this Rainbow Bridge http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccH7ffwpMuw

 

 

that doesn't make sense - we have the term death for a reason - and when we die that's it - also as far as I'm away energy diminishes or is lost as it's processed.

I believe that zombies make terrible household pets.  I have no proof of this, but it seems like something to be sure of.  Outside of that, I require proof.

 

I think religious people take pride in using the word faith in context to not needing to know - whereas I think that we want to know - and faith just doesn't cut it - and so saying I accept the facts lead to evolution or I have faith in science and scientific methods - it has different implications.  Because we are having faith in the method of seeking evidence that stacks up - rather than having faith without facts.
Faith is quite useless. Gimme logical deduction and truth any day.
Sure I agree - can't quite remember why we needed to use the word faith - but it seemed important at the time.... for example - I'm not going to do the research of an astro physicist - so I can say that I have faith in what they tell me - because I trust their scientific method.

How do you logically deduce that the next restaurant meal you eat won't poison you?

Induction might do the job; a coin toss might. Deduction won't.

 

Perhaps I used the wrong word. It happens without brain fuel. I would deduce that the absence of ambulances and camera crews outside the establishment probably signify that its going to be okay to eat there.

You did more than use the wrong word; you placed too much faith in deduction, which is just one of the means we use to make decisions.

An absence of ambulances or camera crews outside the establishment would allow you to deduce that no one was poisoned perhaps fifteen minutes earlier. Their absence would tell you nothing of what happened two hours ago, what is happening right now, or what might happen after you enter and order a meal.

You might deduce from the number of people at tables and eating whether it's okay for you to eat there. You might, as I did once, infer from a restroom's uncleanliness that the kitchen is unclean and decide to eat elsewhere.

Your "brain fuel tank" isn't empty; your "experience tank" isn't full enough.
