I was talking to one of my friends the other day, about a conversation I had with a mutual friend of ours. She was irritated about the fact that people (like me, aparently) can believe in things with out, and/or DESPITE scientific facts and figures. We both agreed that this was an absurd thing to feel confused or irritated by, as we felt that the whole concept of belief is that you believe in some thing with out the logical reasons, the scientific facts, or the hard evidence. The whole essance of believing in some thing is because its in your heart, and you know it to be true. and when you believe it, you believe hard. It is not dictated by science, or logic, and certainly not other people. And I believe that belief can give you the power to achieve any thing.
So I ask, (and im sorry if the subject has come up, im still kinda new)
What is belief, and what does it mean to you?
