Ve believe in nossing.

They’re nihilists, Donny, nothing to be afraid of.

“I do not affirm anything;
I also do not affirm the fact that I do not affirm anything.
Absolute doubt has now begun. This is doubt as the total impossibility of affirming anything at all, even its own nonaffirmation. Progressing stage by stage, manifesting the idea that inheres in it in nuce, skepticism reaches its own negation but cannot leap across this negation. And so, it becomes an infinitely excruciating torment, an agony of the spirit….What we see is not even affirmation and negation, but insane convulsions, a furious marching iin place, a tossing from side to side, a kind of inarticulate philosophical howl. The result is an abstention from judgment, absolute epoche, not as a tranquil and dispassionate refusal of judgment but as a conceled inner pain, a pain that clenches its teech and strains every nerve and muscle in an effort not to scream and not to let out a completely insane howl.”
Fr. Pavel Florensky
