The “B” Word

By Hani Hamdan, Engage Minnesota

Whenever I hear a question being asked about an issue of public debate, I can’t help but notice the verb “believe.”

“Do you believe in global warming?”

“Do you believe that President Obama is a secret Muslim?”

“Do you believe that silver amalgam dental fillings will make you sick?”

“Do you believe in vaccinations?”

Is it just me, or is the word “believe” being patently misused here?
