Pittsburgh Freethought CommunityPromoting Science, Reason and Humanist Values in the greater Pittsburgh area.
This month's topic is about believing things we cannot prove. What causes people to believe in things they cannot prove? Can it be rational for a person to believe in something they can't prove? What are the personal and societal effects of such beliefs? Is belief in the unprovable restricted to religion and conspiracy theories, or do we all hold unprovable beliefs?
120 scientific thinkers write about what they believe but cannot prove: https://www.edge.org/q2005/q05_print.html
