It is here where the debate started to degenerate. DoDo was speaking of possible beliefs in general, taking in a wide range of things people believe in.
You examined DoDo's non-denominational list looking through a Christian prism.
They put their faith in what they see, in what appears to be real, trustworthy and objective - safe ground, IF and only IF there really isn't anything else and real there that escapes their five senses which are bound in space and time.
Actually, relying on what we can determine from empirical observation would be safe even if there were supra-empirical entities or phenomena "out there." That which cannot be reliably detected is unlikely to harm or benefit you. After all, if it could reliably harm or benefit you in some way, it could be reliably detected by examining the harm or benefit it occasions.
Friends come and go. Enemies accumulate.
