I have repeatedly requested that YOU provide your personal definition of “belief” in this thread, and with your own words, and you fail to understand that myself and others do not play the “clickbait” game.
Stop saying “see above”, or the sole conclusion I can reach is that all you are doing in this forum is self promotion.
Nitpick: I did not say explicitly say you claimed that people need to believe in Science for science to hold true.* I said you claimed that humans (who I said happen to be the actors of science) need belief, as seen in my quote below. I’ve highlighted the target (with “[” “]”) of my comment, since you seemed to have missed this.
It looks like you misread the highlighted portion of my words “…amongst humans [who are science’s actors/communicators]…”. I specifically mentioned that you said humans (who I said happen to be Science’s actors) need to believe, I did not explicitly say you said humans need to believe in Science for it to hold true.
Notably though, scientific methodology does constitute interacting with the world.
A snippet of the quote of mine, quoting you, related to your comment:
I did say humans need to form beliefs about the world in order to interact with it, which of course they do.
AT NO POINT DID I REMOTELY CLAIM people need to believe in Science for science to hold true. As you claimed I had, it’s in the opening line of your opening post above, and here it is again:
You lied and you’ve even lied again in that post, offering edited and clipped quotes, to misrepresent my post, pathetic. I challenged you to quote a single poster making THAT CLAIM, and all you did was make up more lies and offer quotes that didn’t remotely say that.
