  1. How can you know what to believe?

    • A belief can never be certain.
      • A currently known fact might be discovered that will overturn the belief.
      • There’s no way to know if such an undiscovered fact is out there waiting to be discovered.
      • So, there is no way to know with absolute certainty the Truth of a belief.
      • All you can do is develop a reasonable judgment as to what is true and what is false.
