But see, it's not really. If you understand that you
cannot know for sure, you can still hold a belief

believe differently are wrong.
It's entirely possible to hold a belief is true without having any
evidence that it is true. It's even entirely possible to hold a belief
is true, have no evidence that it is true, and have it actually be
true. It's also possible to have very good reasons for believing that
something is true, and have it be false.
Consider the proposition "All unicorns have one horn." It's either
true or false regardless of whether or not you have any evidence for
the existence of unicorns, or any faith in their existence for that
Of course there is an ultimate truth. We'll find it out
when we die. Unless of course there is no afterlife,
in which case we won't find out anything, but it won't
Until then it's all speculation.
What's your point?
Why would we find out after we die? Even if there is an afterlife? If there's
no afterlife, then we won't know for sure.
I never got this where we are *necessarily* going to find out after death.. do
