    Re: Believe

    Believes in God
    ''believes '' sounds as ıf they are friends and she or he believes what he or she says.(this is my opinion)
    ''Believe in ''is used for more abstract nouns.

    Re: Believe

    hi all,

    this is my opinion..

    believes in means that you have faith in something..

    i.e I believe in you. same as i have faith in you./ i trust you

    as for believe.. i think that there must be some kind of explanation to stress out why did you choose to believe.

    i.e i believe you, because you are my friend.

    She believes me as we've known each other for quite some time.

    but still for above poll, the correct most matched answer would be 'believes in'. =)
