Then what good is belief? Perhaps that it allows one to formulate ideas and evaluate things mentally without the having the facts.
Belief allows one to have certainty without evidence. The less evidence one has, the more adamant must be the belief because without a degree of certainty, we become enervate, helpless frightened.
