Believe to exist… Can humankind survive without beliefs?
Believing in nothing is to lose the meaning of life and to become apathetic. But then, why and what do we need to believe in? What do YOU believe in? Maybe God(s), yourself, astrology, magic, legislation, or science? All humans live and (inter)act in the same world, but they do not believe in the same things. When it comes to beliefs, so many questions arise! Whether it is the content and idiosyncrasies of some type of beliefs (such as myths concerning the Loch Ness, the Yeti, dragons, paranormal activities, beliefs in the theory of flat earth…) or the reasons why we need to believe!
Why do we need to believe in something?
Are there Universal Beliefs?
What about derives of beliefs?
