So...I think that evolution is true. (Or, pace by understanding of "truth," the best explanation we have at hand for our observations of the world.)
I *believe* something that I've basically copied from Csikszentmihalyi, the idea that live exhibits a teleology--what might be considered a moral imperative--to resist the second law of thermodynamics--that trying (even if it's ultimately impossible) to increase the degree of order in the universe, is what life is *for*. This, unlike scriptural religions as we find them in the contemporary world, is suggested by what we see in the natural world, but is in principle not something that follows from what we see there...thus, "belief" rather than "knowledge."
I believe that there is no such thing as the supernatural (I am a scientific humanist) and that logic, science, democracy, and compassion are all that is needed for mankind to thrive. And I also believe that there is not a moral imperative (I think some of Kant's consequentialist ideas explains morality just fine).
