  • Whatever they choose to believe in, would be my guess.
  • They don't "have" to believe in anything - free will; it is up to each and every one of us to decide on our own beliefs.
  • Due to an overdose of religion in the first 18 years of my life, I now find the natural world far more interesting and exciting. Try camping and white water riding on several different rivers and you'll see what I'm talking about.
  • You believe in yourself and all that you stand for...you believe in the truth and the way that has made you the person that you are...that is what you believe in my friend :)
  • Maybe science, or art, or love, or thier fellow man. Maybe they could choose to believe in the inate potential of a child, or liberty, or justice, or even themselves, and thier ablity to rise above ignorance, and oppresion and be a better version of themselves.
  • Life through their own experiences,and the collective knowledge of all humans history as a whole for myself.*+++++*
  • They believe in themselves. They believe in those things that can be proved. They believe the sun will come up in the morning and that the day will have more challenges to it. They believe that life has no meaning and that is the result of a series of cosmic events and a moment of passion between a human male and female.
  • well i think you mean "what have we to believe in" and not "what must we believe in".. so... i believe in our ability and potential to uncover the unknown..
  • mayb read other holy books and follow your heart...believe in something though ;)
  • I believe in me, my own judgments & knowledge of experiences & common sense! :-/ the bible is just a guide some bloke wrote to give the masses something to aspire to, to give the uneducated some direction & also to make a few bob out of too, it maybe needs updating as it has been over & over again to fit in with modern thinking throughout the centuries!! Lol…
  • You seem to be suggesting that because a book exists and we know someone wrote it, one must believe what it says. If that were so, we would also have to believe that Gulliver really traveled to Lilliput and was taken prisoner by 6-inch-tall humans, Paul Bunyan really lived and had a blue ox so huge its footprints made the Great Lakes, and a Alice really followed a White Rabbit down a rabbit hole to Wonderland.
  • I understand that the absolute limits and character of belief may be discovered, and fairly quickly too. What I am Not is next to discover and after that , what I Am lives me without reference to either written or spoken word.
  • I believe in myself.
  • Things that actually exist
  • (2 Timothy 3:16) All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, So if you do not believe in the Bible, then you do not believe in this scripture... What you are doing is blaming the bible when you should be blaming the FALSE teachings of religious leaders. Who are NOT teaching what the Bible states. Example... (Exodus 20:23) YOU must not make along with me gods of silver, and YOU must not make gods of gold for yourselves. Do not the catholics have statues that they bow down to...Staues of even Jesus and Mary...even these are not acceptable to God...because they are statues. We should be obedient to this.//.// (John 4:23) Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshipers will worship the Father with spirit and truth, for, indeed, the Father is looking for suchlike ones to worship him. Spirit and truth do not include statues.,.. (Exodus 20:4-5) “You must not make for yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or that is on the earth underneath or that is in the waters under the earth. 5 You must not bow down to them nor be induced to serve them, because I Jehovah your God am a God exacting exclusive devotion, bringing punishment for the error of fathers upon sons, upon the third generation and upon the fourth generation, in the case of those who hate me; """A FORM LIKE ANYTHING...which clearly implies ANY carving...
  • Everything else.
  • A person has to keep looking. The bible is not the only book in the world. Sit still and think long and hard about what it is you are searching for. Read about people whom you admire and what they believe and see if it makes sense to you. I went through this for years before I found very solid answers that make total sense to me. Everyone's path is different and dismissing the Bible is not dismissing every belief system. Picking up the Bible and just trying to make sense of it is really for scholars in my opinion. I went to the East and read the lives of the spiritual masters from that part of the world. They have been around for a lot longer than the history of the Bible. Jesus came from the East. Study some of those great Masters that Jesus also studied from.
  • lots of things to believe in: The intrinsic benevolence of mankind, the power of love, and most importantly, believeing in myself.
  • Himself and his fellow man. What else do you need?
  • The Muslims would say the quaran, and that's just one of infinite answers.
  • Listen to the words of John Lennon's song "IMAGINE" and that's a really great start to belief.
  • Probably all the same things you believe in...except God. Basic morals have been around long before man invented God and the Bible. We needed morals and rules in order to form societies...it's simple. I'm so f***ing tired of Christians claiming that they created the morals of today. How do you think we formed societies? Take a f***ing basic sociology class for God's sake! I'm amazed that we don't run around stoning homosexuals and people who haven't accepted Jesus as their personal lord and savior...we're surprisingly well mannered, in SPITE of Christianity's influence over our society.
  • They can believe in many different things. The earth, the moon, the sky, paying taxes, going to work, and finding love. There is more to life then just a book wrote by a bunch of middle age guys sitting around telling us what we need to believe in when they didn't believe in it.
  • They could believe muslim mythology, or hindu, or any of the numerous religious mythologies of our world. Or, they could believe in none of them. Why MUST we believe in something?
  • You can be an atheist.
  • They could always believe in themselves and being a good person. I am sure that counts for something! Plus who the hell WROTE the Bible and how do you know for SURE? Did you see them write it? Not that I don't believe, but I know enough not to believe everything I read and am told.
  • By that you already admit and believe that the religion is false.
  • Everything else.
  • They believe in things of this world that they can feel and touch. They believe in themselves. They believe in things that they can prove and do not require faith.
  • people can live without beliefs and that's all some people need to know
  • Themselves, their family, their friends, their society, their leaders. You know, real things...
