Sometimes you have just have a feeling about something and you KNOW that it’s true, even though you have absolutely no evidence or facts to back it up.
I guess some call it faith and others would call it ignorance, but each person is definitely different in this respect.
And I think it’s safe to say that some of these beliefs are harmless and some can be extremely dangerous, especially when it comes to conspiracy theories and politics…
AskReddit users sounded off about what they believe to be true even though they have nothing to back it up.
1. A famous true crime case.
“Casey Anthony killed her daughter and her parents know it too!
The justice system failed that poor baby.
And to me, what’s worse is last year she apparently said she wants another child/children.”
2. Very confusing.
“That my last boss secretly hated me even though we had, on the surface, a very positive relationship.”
3. Hmmmm. Maybe?
“The Truman show was made to make me think the entire world watching my every move was a ridiculous notion.
But I know better…”
4. Might be true.
“That the key to happiness is low expectations.”
5. Mob front.
“There’s a travel agency that’s been around in my town for as long as I can remember.
I wholeheartedly believe it’s a front for the mob.”
6. Hollywood legacy.
“That a LOT more famous actors than we realize are secretly the children of other famous actors from the previous generation.
I call it the Hollywood B*stard Theory.”
7. A lot of people will be mad.
“George R R Martin will never finish the last Game of Thrones book.”
“I’m convinced I watched Flight 93 go down.
I would never share that in real life because it’s grim and no one would believe me (the geography of the reports are off ). I saw it clear as day from Kent State’s main campus in Ohio.
I didn’t know what I was seeing other than I remember thinking “that plane is way way too low (we had a aviation college so planes were common) and too big and it’s jerking around like how a toddler drives a power wheels truck….”.
Continued on to class. You don’t wanna be late even at a liberal college.”
9. Could be…
“Flat Earthers are just doing it for attention.
They really don’t think the Earth is flat.”
“Gut bacterial imbalance can change a person fundamentally — physically, mentally, emotionally.
One day they’re going to cure some impossibly vexing diseases and conditions when they figure out that it’s all connected to what lives in your guts.”
11. A scary thought.
“That actual, proper snuff films exist.
There’s too much depravity and perversion in the world for that not to be the case.”
“That Andy Dufresne was guilty in the Shawshank Redemption.
It’s never actually proven that he didn’t kill his wife and her lover. We just have his word and a story made up by an inmate that wanted to be liked by Andy and his friends.
Also what are the chances that his wife and lover were murdered the same night that Andy was going to kill them himself, before he changed his mind?”
13. From the deep…
“There is some Godzilla sh*t at the bottom of our oceans.
Deep sea gigantism will not fail me.”
14. I started it.
“Back when I was 18 I got my first tattoo, the Squaresoft logo on my upper arm. It was 2001 and I was also on my own in a new state.
I was and still am a huge RPG fan and it’s the height of my geekdom. Well, I sent in a picture of me and my tattoo with a short letter about me and my favorite games to Official PlayStation Magazine.
They published my letter and photo along with the caption “We don’t know whether to be impressed or frightened.”
The very next month they started a “Tattoo of the Month” section and I am absolutely sure 100% that I either started that or was the story that proved the concept, the test.
Unless someone can come from that team’s time and tell me I’m not, I’ll always believe I was the start of that.”
Do you have any extremely strong beliefs like this?
If so, please share them in the comments.
We look forward to hearing from you!
