belief : (a) a state or habit of mind in which trust or confidence is placed in some person or thing (b) something that is accepted, considered to be true, or held as an opinion (c) conviction of the truth of some statement or the reality of some being or phenomenon especially when based on examination of evidence — Webster
Belief is the state of mind in which a person thinks something to be the case, with or without there being empirical evidence to prove that something is the case with factual certainty. Another way of defining belief sees it as a mental representation of an attitude positively oriented towards the likelihood of something being true.
In epistemology, philosophers use the term “belief” to refer to personal attitudes associated with true or false ideas and concepts. However, “belief” does not require active introspection and circumspection. For example, we never ponder whether or not the sun will rise. We simply assume the sun will rise. — Wikipedia
