Try to rank them on the following 7 point scale: Strongly agree - Agree - Slightly Agree - Neutral - Slightly disagree - Disagree - Strongly disagree Please post your beliefs/rankings of these statements. However, please enclose your answers in [spoiler][/spoiler] tags so that other people aren't influenced by your answers before thinking about the statements. It is better if you do not read other people's responses before posting your own. Here are the statements to consider: Believing something without evidence is admirable. When something cries out for an explanation, any answer is better than no answer. It is okay to accept that something is true or false because it is comforting. I give all claims the benefit of the doubt when I first encounter them. Everyone is justified in their beliefs until they are proven wrong. The most important criterion for my beliefs is that they match reality.
