To what extent must our beliefs be based on rational grounds? This knowledge issue is based on the main prescribed question “To what extent do we need evidence to support our beliefs in different areas of knowledge?” emphasising specifically on the word “need” the irony in the question is that a belief may be irrational, and may not need evidence to support it. This is the case of the knowledge area of Religion. People may seek religion because of various reasons, because they were brought up with secondary knowledge from their parents who made them believe in a divine power, because of cultural backgrounds, in a search for purpose of life or simply to find comfort that there is a life after death. I for example, was brought up as a catholic by my grandparents and parents, I am a believer of God and I prey almost every night, I don’t have any evidence to believe in God, but it comforts me to think that someone up there maybe protects me and listens to me. In fact the only source of evidence in favour of religion is the bible.
