I am the guy who invented 'non-beliefism'.
Ever wonder why scientists believe in science?
Belief definition: "To accept as true, especially absent evidence".

Belief tends to facilitate that beings ignore evidence, on the boundary of confirmation bias:

"Belief memories" are typically false:
(Neuroscience paper on belief)
Belief is observed to oppose science by definition/research. (i.e. belief lowly concerns evidence, while science highly concerns evidence)
SO, WHY DO SCIENTISTS (EXCEPT Neil Degrasse Tyson...) BELIEVE IN SCIENCE (especially when Science is true regardless of belief)?
