Basic Description Edit
"Astevism" is the phenomenon whereby people do not believe that Steve McRae exists. Those suffering from this position usually fall victim to this due to the rather bizarre claim they they do not have any beliefs. As this "lack of all beliefs" position entails that they don't believe anything, they must also not believe that Steve exists. Thus, they are Astevists.¹
This would also seem to entail that they do not know anything either, since knowledge is a subset of belief. (You can not know p, unless you also believe p.)
After working past his existential crisis and coming to terms with his own lack of existence, Steve wrote about this very peculiar phenomenon in a blog.
¹ In the colloquial sensu lato sense of the word. In the sensu stricto sense it would be someone who believes Steve does not exist.
