how can anyone ever know with 100% certainty?
    #3050707 - 08/25/04 11:26 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

i am curious as to what some people think as to how a person KNOWS something. personally i do not belive it is possible to know with 100% certainty. then again i also believe anything could be possible because we cant know if it isnt (dont even ask).

so a coupel things come to mind when someone thinks something is definate. how do you know you are not dreaming/hallucinating etc. how can you be sure what you see or feel is not induced by some unknown force?

if you believe in some form of god, how do you know it is not his/her/it blinding you from truth or fact?

i jsut cant seem to see how anyone can say anythign is actuall, but i try and keep an open mind. just cause somethign seems really logical and no other way seems to fit, does that make it fact?

anyway im interested to see what others opinions are about this.

NOTHING is known for certain. We can only "know" things given certain assumptions, such as the world we percieve being real, and the laws of physics applying equally everywhere,

my thoughts exactly. but im trying to get a grasp on how some people seem to know, 100%, that something is real. god IS real, 1+1 IS 2 etc.

i find talking to religous extremeists, for lack of a better word, very much liek that. historians as well...kind of aggrevates me, but its quite interesting.

... as there is no way to verify anything with absolute certainty, All we can do is say that we are as certain as is pertinent to be and move on with our lives...

that's how i feel anywho, and I doubt anyone will be able to prove with 100% certainty otherwise :wink:

I am never sure that anything that I experience or believe or think or feel is real. Well, it feels real to me, based on my reasoning, but I often think, "I am probably just delusional."
