The system has the particular belief that P if its behavior conforms to a pattern that may be effectively captured by taking the intentional stance and attributing the belief that P. Belief is thus characterized in terms of (pre-existing) practices of belief attribution.
Although pattern/interpretation approaches to belief treat behavioral (and possibly cognitive or experiential) patterns, rather than mental representations, as fundamental, the representational and pattern/interpretation approaches can be married if one holds that the existence of the relevant patterns implies, or is implied by, the possession of appropriate mental representations.
On this view, people's everyday conception of the mind, their "folk psychology", is a theory on par with folk theories about the origin of the universe or the nature of physical bodies.

There are a variety of articles on wikipedia that list people of a particular religious belief.
These lists are not exhaustive: there is no encyclopedic benefit to listing every single member of each religion.
People are selected on various criteria - ideally they should have wikipedia articles of their own, and be in some way noteworthy for their belief.

 Major Religions Ranked by Size
This list is based primarily on the degree of doctrinal/theological similarity among all the various sub-groups which belong to these classifications, and to a lesser extent based on diversity in practice, ritual and organization.
People who specify atheism as their religious preference actually make up less than one-half of one percent of the population in many countries where much large numbers claim no religious preference, such as the United States (13.2% nonreligious according to ARIS study of 2001) and Australia (15% nonreligious).
Finally, a larger number of people answer "none" or "non-religious" when asked asked an open-ended queston about what their religious preference is. Although figures vary for each country, average numbers indicate that roughly half of the people who self-identify as "nonreligious" also answer "yes" when asked if they believe in God or a Higher Power.

 Belief (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Forming beliefs is thus one of the most basic and important features of the mind, and the concept of belief plays a crucial role in both philosophy of mind and epistemology.
However, a philosopher approaching belief with the specific goal of defending physicalism or materialism—the view that everything in the world, including the mind, is wholly physical or material (see physicalism)—might have reason to be dissatisfied with liberal dispositionalism, for the very reason that it abandons the reductionist project.
The difficulty of sustaining such a view of belief is often held to reflect badly on the a coarse-grained possible-worlds view of propositions in general, since it's generally thought that one of the principal metaphysical functions of propositions is to serve as the contents of belief and other "propositional attitudes" (e.g., Field 1978; Soames 1987).

 derrickjensen_discussion - Discussion of Derrick Jensen's works and the ideas contained within
This list has been an evolution since it first was created almost two years ago, and it is through the list participants and the will of that somewhat amorphous group that guidelines and practices have been established as we have built an online network of individuals disaffected with civilization.
What this list is mainly about - the central theme - is that Civilization as it is defined by this list, is unredeemable and needs to come down (or be taken down by helping forces if possible).
List participants generally explore this and other themes related to the collapse of civilization as a way of inspiring and connecting with each other and further exploring the emotional, political, ecological and social dimensions of what this means.

 Draft Debian Position Statement about the GNU Free Documentation License(GFDL)
There is some concern that the requirements to list the authors of the modification on the title page and the history sections of the GFDL covered work (especially since these sections are otherwise invariant) appear to prohibit anonymous modifications to a document.
List on the Title Page, as authors, one or more persons or entities responsible for authorship of the modifications in the Modified Version, together with at least five of the principal authors of the Document (all of its principal authors, if it has fewer than five), unless they release you from this requirement.
Possible developers are people who claimed to be Debian Developers but did not have a well-formed GPG signature on their responses, so I was unable to verify their claims.

 Belief - "Jesus Would Not Be Fundamentalist" (by Brent Elskan)
This page was written while I was very irritated by several encounters I'd had earlier that week and during the stress of a schizophrenic neighbor choosing our family as her focus for all the anger and unhappiness she had inside.
So, those claiming that being "fundamentalist" means that their beliefs are based on fundamental principles of Christianity shouldn't have one problem with my doing just what the early Christians did and assuming the three Synoptic Gospels to be the authoritative texts by which to study the phenomenon of Jesus.
The lowest common denominator, people who can't even see the hypocrisy of their own belief structure, who think as little as possible and think television programs are discussion-worthy (shudder), have a capacity for generating large-scale and sweeping changes in the United States, including voter turnouts for important political elections.

 Norsys - Bayesian Belief Networks   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-18)
Belief networks (also known as Bayesian networks, Bayes networks and causal probabilistic networks), provide a method to represent relationships between propositions or variables, even if the relationships involve uncertainty, unpredictability or imprecision.
They capture knowledge in a modular form that can be transported from one situation to another; it is a form people can understand, and which allows a clear visualization of the relationships involved.
By adding decision variables (things that can be controlled), and utility variables (things we want to optimize) to the relationships of a belief network, a decision network (also known as an influence diagram) is formed.

Some would argue that what we call knowledge is a form of belief: that knowledge should be given no privileged position.
Others would argue that belief is subordinate to knowledge and should be subjected to critique from what is known.
While some scholars separate the objects of belief and knowledge into discrete domains, protected by category, language game, or contest from one another, there are no commonly accepted norms for adjudication among these positions that currently operate in either the academic or the wider public sphere.

So many people get caught up in their fears or in limiting themselves with their beliefs that they are not able to do anything and therefore can't get anywhere.
Instead of taking their beliefs and moving forward with action, they run on the same treadmill propelled by self-sabatoge, excuses, fears, bad beliefs.
And your beliefs need to come from your core, your gut, your soul and not from what you've read, have been told by your family or media or the part of the brain that makes you rationalise away what your heart is saying.

While he says it's great that people are more interested in other religious faiths, he also says, "It's a world where religion is kind of a spiritual smorgasbord." The popularity of choosing personalized religious paths and practices erodes the authority and tradition meant to accompany religious practice.

Kaplan advocated dropping chosenness for two reasons: to undercut accusations of the sort made by Shaw that the Chosen People idea was the model for racist ideologies, and because it went against modern thinking to see the Jews as a divinely chosen people.
