    Re: Stuff you believe in

    Most of these are things you believe in without sufficent evidence yet it still includes alot of people.

    I have no beliefs i wouldnt change my mind on with sufficent evidence.

    I believe alien life is overwhelmingly likely. It truly stretches credulity to assume that out of hundreds of billions of galaxies, each with hundreds of billions of stars in them, that Earth is the ONLY world to develop life.

    And obviously I believe in scientific theories.

    I don't believe in any of the other things on your list, as there is no credible evidence for any of them, and (unlike aliens) no particular reason to deduce their likely existence. The Matrix is an intriguing possibility though...I have difficulty refuting some of the philosophical arguments supporting it.

    I agree however i cant say i believe in aliens as i have no evidence for their actual existence.

    All of the above. Only scientific theories that are observable. I believe there are aliens but I seriously doubt any of them have abducted people or flew over the night sky for everyone and their mom to see.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I did not choose science as it is in my opinion stupid to try and compare the metaphysical to the physical, period.

    I'd just like to point out that the Big Bang is a lot more heavily disputed in science than evolution, and to put all "scientific theories" into one option is silly.

    The universe is literally full of millions of forms of intelligent life and much of which is likely billions of years ahead of humans in technology.

    That being said we still cannot rule out there being a God in some form because the beginning of it all had to start somehow.

    The Big Bang is not disputed. There are certain ASPECTS in the theory (e.g. whether the universe started as a point or just a very small volume, whether there was inflation, etc) that are still disputed. But the basic idea that the universe as we know it was born from virtually nothing 13.7 billion years ago, and has been expanding ever since, is not in dispute at all.

    Yes well I couldn't be making a hundred options could I now?

    The big bang is not a fact, Evolution is not a fact, hence, there is no problem here.
