Tiiism: a belief that all philosophies, and religions, have some things in them which ring true, as well as other things which ring hollow, and that no amount of belief, or faith, will ever make the hollow things ring true. Conversely, no amount of disbelief, or lack of proof that a truth was divinely inspired, will make it any less true.

Tii is Estonian for "Path" "Road" or "Way".

also see Tao.
You may not believe that Jesus or Buddha were divine, but the Golden Rule is still tiiism.

The following quote by Buddha is a tiiism . . .

"Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace."
