Saying it is my belief that 2+2=4 is quite different from saying it is my belief that burritos are delicious. One is an objective "belief," one is subjective. The same holds true here. Saying "I conclude that, since there is no definitive evidence for the existence of God, and since the universe doesn't seem to require God to function, I don't think he exists" and "God exists because it's written right here and it makes me feel so good" are on two ends of the spectrum. Are you saying that something's true because we say it is or are you just splitting hairs?
