A belief, whether asserted or not, is what one treats as being true without any evidence to support it or even despite evidence to the contrary. It is clear from his posts that Bob believes that what is in the Universe of Discourse has no bearing on database theory--that whether it is just a collection of mathematical constants or a collection of things that can change is irrelevant. I claim the opposite, and though I have supplied copious evidence to support my claim, it has been either dismissed or ignored. You also appear to share his belief, but instead of submitting a rational argument to refute my claim, you resort to ad hominem attacks.
