Belief and Certainty
Well, to kick things off on this.
I believe that it is a certainty that at some point in the future, the human race will become extinct.
I believe that there are people who don't believe humans could ever become extinct;.
People who believe humans are the rightful heirs of the Earth, and that this is a forever thing.
I believe that the Earth has life which will always remain.
I am certain that there will always be a life form which carries as a vessel, the consciousness of the planet.
I am not certain anyone will understand my certainty.
I believe that the vast majority of people believe in things which are fed by a need to believe in something.
I am certain that most beliefs are distortions fed by a nagging sense of knowing nothing.
I believe that while people search for these things, their lives pass by.
And desperation sets in to feel like there has been success in that search.
I believe that things will change. Change is a certainty.
I don't believe it is possible for anyone to affect change.
I am certain even that change is a result of failed beliefs and failure to believe.
There are so many beliefs, which battle each other and force people to choose certainty..
I believe that in these cases, certainty and stubbornness are interchangeable descriptors.
I have certainty that some humans believe they know with certainty, the most, the truth.
I believe that those humans would kill any who they believe have worked out what they know.
I am quite certain that 90% or more of that which people concern themselves with, is fiction,
and that it is only their belief in these concerns that breathe life to these things.
These things like shadows and apparitions, depend on people to believe in them, to make them real.
Meanwhile, the things which are most certain, continue uncelebrated, drowned out by the search for certainty of belief and the fighting over which delusion is to be declared the most convincing.
