To clarify, when you wrote ". . . but this belief is not necessarily do
to first hand knowledge, or experience," did you mean to write "due"?
What do you mean by doing or not doing what is agreed as true? Doing what, exactly, apart from believing?
What do you mean by, "and it would seem that without question, belief is not only essential to living, but could be the difference between that which lives, and does not live"? Surely you're not saying that belief is necessary to live, because there are those that don't believe and are alive.
