You shouldn"t believe anything on insufficient evidence.
Debate Rounds (4)
MP: You do need insufficient evidence to believe something.
Argument: According to Gomberg, you need insufficient evidence to form a belief because insufficient evidence requires trust and modesty, which is an underlining basis to believing. Therefore, insufficient evidence is required because it aids in trusting the acquired knowledge that helps us from our identities and a sense of whom we are. Insufficient evidence is most prominently used during childhood which leads to us create a foundation to our beliefs.
If we don"t believe in insufficient evidence and only believe in scientific evidence we would never have the basic knowledge to grow into a better individual through understanding that maybe what we believe isn"t always correct. To contain the assumption that your beliefs are never faulty, Insufficient evidence doesn"t always have to be right but it allows you to question your beliefs which allows you to gain a better perspective and understanding of what you believe in which will actually enhance your beliefs.
