They believe precisely what they agree to believe, at the time of the
agreement, and only as long as the agreement lasts. For example, they believe
it's wrong to murder people, unless they agree that mass murder is called for
during the Inquisition or the Crusades, etc. You see, as Charles Lutwidge
Dodgson pointed out, they can believe several impossible things before
breakfast everyday. They seem to thrive on cognitive dissonance.

Useless hypotheses, etc.:
 consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, Cyc, Eliza, cryonics, individual
uniqueness, ego

     Everything that can happen has already happened, not just once,
     but an infinite number of times, and will continue to do so forever.
     (Everything that can happen = more than anyone can imagine.)

We won't move into a better future until we debunk religiosity, the most
regressive force now operating in society.
