Shopping is Important

Monday, February 19, 2007

Belief is involuntary. I read that in the New Yorker, a famous philosopher, Churchland, said it. So belief is more like an emotion. I feel, therefore I believe. Some people don't believe in global warming, said a letter writer to the local paper. Just like so many smokers didn't (don't?) believe that cigarettes can kill you.

When you're invested in a belief, like you believe you need a giant car, you have a hard time believing that your big car is contributing to climate change. Conflicting beliefs, like conflicting emotions, just don't feel good. I believe it's going to take a long time for many people to feel the urge to make changes that are good for the Earth. I hope it doesn't take too long.
