this isn't actually for school! just interesting.

posted by .

On September 8, I posed the question "Do you believe what you believe in is really real?" This was NOT a homework question. I was just curious as to what everyone's different answers were. If anyone else wants to answer, that would be great. This is just kind of a personal survey for my own curiosity. :)

    i do believe that what I see is real, because I want to trust the world.

    i'm not talking about what you SEE here, but what you BELIEVE. are you saying here that you only believe in that which you can see? what about gravity?? or oxygen??

    is your trust only in the world? because one day the world will end.

    just think about that, ok?

    I tend to believe only what I can see [evidence of]; this includes intangible but proven things such as physical laws.
    Lacking a belief in anything which is not readily proven, I have no reason to not believe that anything I think to be real is real.

    It looks as if you all need to go read Plato's "Allegory of the Cave."

    Choose which one to read. Be sure to take a gander at the drawings, too.

    hmmm...interesting illustrations. not sure what this has to do with my question. i asked if YOU, personally, believe what YOU, personally, believe is really real.

    thanks for the link, though. that was unique. :)

    Hey, while you're answering "Do YOU, personally believe what YOU, personally, believe is really real?", ponder the question "What is truth/reality?", and let me know what you think.

    Again, this is NOT, I repeat NOT for homework! I am just curious and doing a sort of random survey on here for my own personal benefit. And just wanted you all to think about what you believe...and truth/reality.
