This is a controversial question and not one that necessarily implies a Super Natural intervention, but I am curious about your opinion.
Many of you I would hope is aware of the fact that living our lives requires a lot of faith. I am not a philosopher or know the whole panoramic overview on what all needs to be understood with this (hence my inquiry), but I do notice an extreme degree of attention being focused on the matter of epistemologically catering to the need to 'believe' what we accept to be true.
If this were not the case, we would never fly to Hawaii because, who knows, it might not be there anymore! Our senses limit our ability to see that far, but we are certain that it is still there. We would never reach down to pet our cat because this would assume that he still likes us when really, he might not! It takes the belief that he does, just as it takes the belief that Hawaii still exists. . . catch my drift? Clearly, we go beyond the truth determined to us by our senses everyday and everything we do and discover requires belief (any suggestions against this claim would be gladly appreciated!). Because of this situation, I must ask, assuming for this instance that existentialism is dead, could meaning be measured in life by the fact of believing as the object? Could it be as simple as that?
It is a stretch, I know. I only aim for perspective and your opinion.
If everything requires for us to believe then we live in a world that means much more than to just simply exist; what if we were born to believe?
Thank you for reading!
