I think his issue is that while he does not believe it, it might be true.

No, it cannot be true any more than Santa can be real. Now, if you'd like to assert that there is a real chance, that it's just possible, that the fat man in a red suit comes down your chimney every Christmas Eve, then I'll be glad to watch that argument unfold.

I think you misunderstand what I said. What I meant what was that he seems to want ultimate immediate certainty. He does not start with it is not real until I see an argument. He starts with , what if, against everything I have seen, Santa or anything else is actually real?what if I am missing something? And, granted we humans miss stuff all the time. Things can be real, even if we lack the evidence for it. So he seems disturbed by any remote possibility, however proven or unproven it might be. 

    It asks a very unreasonable and possibly unsustainable burden of proof. Like I have no evidence that a meteor is going to hit earth in the nect month but it might be true. 

     This is how many people stay in their groups for life, even though they are 99 percent sure it is false. The 1 percent is too risky. Normally 99 percent sure is more than our usual chance or certainty.

     Some ppl with OCD have this issue. You wash your hands 22 times bk it MIGHT be still a virus somewhere.

I think most folks here will approach the question from a logical perspective. For me the biggest reassurance is not being alone. I'd recommend googling Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln's views of religions. Also George Washington (though it will be very limited). Another good one is Andrew Johnson (regardless of what he did as president, his views on religion make for interesting reading). Taft is another good presidential read in religion too. Nixon was very interesting as well. Basically - I'd recommend looking at world leaders or whoever you look up to, find the ones that also struggled, doubted, and found strength in the courage of their convictions. It helps to be not be alone, even if you feel alone without friends nearby.

True.  I think most of us look at the facts, evidence, and lack of evidence.  And not depend on what others "think".   We believe in doing our own thinking.  The truth is more important than being part of the "in crowd".
