Buddhism says that you should not believe in anything without reason. A quote by Buddha from the Kalama Suttra: DO NOT believe in tradition, merely because they have been handed down for many generations and in many places. DO NOT believe in anything because it is rumoured and spoken of by many. DO NOT believe because the written statement of some old sage is produced. DO NOT believe in what you have fancied, thinking that, because it is extraordinary, it must have been implanted by a divine being or a wonderful person. After observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, only then accept it and live up to it.
