Justified, True, Belief, and Epistemology.

I hear a lot of atheists saying that Science doesn’t require belief.  I direct you to Plato’s theory of knowledge.  

Justified true belief

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 
 Justified true belief is a definition of knowledge that is most frequently credited to Plato and his dialogues.[1] The concept of justified true belief states that in order to know that a given proposition is true, one must not only believe the relevant true proposition, but one must also have justification for doing so. In more formal terms, a subject S knows that a proposition P is true if and only if:
  1. P is true
  2. S believes that P is true, and
  3. S is justified in believing that P is true

This theory of knowledge suffered a significant setback with the discovery of Gettier problems, situations in which the above conditions were seemingly met but that many philosophers disagree that anything is known.[2] Robert Nozick suggested a clarification of “justification” which he believed eliminates the problem: the justification has to be such that were the justification false, the knowledge would be false.

I reject that Gettier falsification because it uses a narrative fallacy to create a scenario by creating a compound piece of knowledge.  Nobody thinks like that, if Bertrand Russell were alive he would trounce him soundly with the reductio ad absurdum.  Anybody that does think like the way Gettier proposed is an idiot anyway.  Who makes predictions based on arbitrary compound elements like that?

The fact of the matter is that knowledge does require belief, I can’t remember the last time I saw atheists walking into walls, they know they are solid so they operating tacitly on belief don’t try to walk through them.

  1. Science would not have any value in case the researchers and writers did not believe what they found and wrote. Without believing in something they could not do any experiment or research. Before we go looking for something we must believe there is something.
