Belief is important. It is the foundation of faith and truth. Without it there’s little chance that full faith and trust can be placed in someone or something.
Of course some things totally overwhelm and beggar credulity – either because you, because of who and what you are, could not conceive that people would fail to supports your actions or because your actions seem so atypical for anyone claiming the specific knowledge, training, and loyalties pertaining to the situation. 😉
