Unprovable beliefs:

Do you believe in anything that can't be proven to exist, either because it's literally impossible to prove or because people currently do not have the means to do so?

In case it wasn't clear, I mean things like ghosts, fairies, magic, God, other deities, etc.

I believe in God and aliens.

NOTE: This is not a place for telling other people their beliefs are ridiculous. Please keep things like that to yourselves.

Are aliens unprovable though? :o Unless they're like an intelligence distributed across the galaxy, doesn't seem that unprovable.

You can speculate and use probability and stuff to make a case for aliens being out there. But outside of micro-organisms frozen on Titan or something, there's no proof there is another civilization out there.

I don't think we can prove that they exist currently. Maybe some day.

[up]Yeah, what Para said.

All hail
YOU'RE BELIEFS ARE STOOPID AND REDICULOUS!!!

Anyway, I believe that every planet with (sufficiently advanced) intelligent life is at a similar stage of space travel technology as us (if they have it at all) and, thus, have no way to reach our planet yet, which is why we haven't yet seen them.

I also believe they also have media involving aliens, some of which may resemble us (and a show like "Ancient Aliens" where people speculate that their equivalent of the pyramids were built by us).

For now they are.

Seconding belief in life on other planets. The universe, or hell, even the galaxy is just too big for me to fathom there not being anything out there.

For sillier things, I believe in the whole "rabbit's paws are good luck" thing. Mainly because I got my first date ever wearing one, and found fifty euros in a pocket the same day.

Depends on what "provable" means.

If "prove" means "give a convincing explanation" that's a subjective criteria because it's ultimately up to you to accept the proof as satisfactory.

That said I believe that the Zermelo-Fraenkel Set Theory with Axiom of Choice is true, and that's not really provable.

I don't think a convincing explanation is really "proof".

God exists and he has a sense of humor.

Beware.

I meant as in "Can you really prove God". I'm not sure how I would answer that if to prove is a vague idea.

Blurrggghh.
Proving God's existence?

With current technology, no.

Are you saying we could do it with technology in the future?

Yeah, Nothing doesn't like to be believe in. Nothing's kinda testy like that.

So does proof mean 'stands up to basic logic/rigor' then? :o Cause I mean, even logic isn't all that basic.

You believe in nothing and nothing believes in you? Or are we just the myths of nothing?
