So I have had this argument with people for years, that I am so happy to finally have some evidence to support my postualtes.
Specifically that anything we think is true, regardless of it's veracity, is a belief. Including 2+2=4. Lots of people will say "I can show you,
therefore it is not a belief".
Well, along comes a UCLA brain scan expert whom has performed some studies on brain imagery given belief, disbelief an uncertainty.
Remember, that what we believe effects who and what we are to such a grand degree, that it is worth believing the opposite of what the evidence states
sometimes in order to make your life easier ;-)
