It depends on what you believe.

Not all the cases of "creer" imply suppositions of course, but I was answering Fazor's question about the opposition "creer"-"saber".

As for certainties:

Creo en Dios.
I believe in God.

Creo que nuestro deber es ser honestos.
I believe our duty is to be honest.

Creo que seremos muy felices.
I think we will be very happy.

Ain't it wonderful to be alive when the Rock'n'Roll plays...
