...But I think you are being dishonest in saying that you "donpt choose what I find believable".
YOU actually choose what to believe by describing the set of things that you find worthy of belief. How else do you justify the fact that you believe scientific concepts more than religious concept (if you believe any religious concepts at all)?
I believe you misjudge this person by calling them dishonest. I agree with their statement. If something is not logical to me, I have absolutely no power at all to "choose" to believe it. I would have to use the "Jedi mind trick" on myself, so to speak. I have no more capability to believe in most people's "gods" than I have to make myself believe that 2 plus 2 equals 5.
