Pillars of Belief:
I. Adherence to ideational, experiential, sociocultural, and relativistic paradigms; which are founded on scientific and empirical principles. These are assumed to be granted by our human cognition.
II. Agnosticism and guarded skepticism of absolutes. Coupled with an acceptance of human limitations of knowledge (acquisition, maintenance, development, and other manipulations of information and knowledge).
III. This faithful behavioral pattern is innately non-hegemonic; as agnosticism is inherent to this perspective. In other words: this belief system cannot be preached nor forced upon a person. It is held self-evident per believer and holds no true validity. So nothing can be known such that it’s believable enough to preach. Things are always uncertain or novel.
This belief believes in belief. So if someone believes something, it is real. It exists. In their mind for sure. Outside it, we don’t know. But the sheer fact that they believe it is enough for me to believe it too. All in all, I believe it’s all in the neurons.
So, my conviction manifests as a man holding faith in science, humanism, and their philosophy. I believe in science and humanism. I have faith this is the path to righteousness. I am a man of faith, a man of humanity. I am not a man of God in any specific sense, but I am willing to stand with, under, or over any god nonetheless.
