I was responding to Cuchulain's  "will it make you a better person?". The context there seems to me to imply a conscious choice.

 

I think its a mixture - we think about where we are internally led.  There's a saying I like it that respect - man(kind) is not a rational animal, but a rationalizing animal. In that view we do, and then we find reasons for what we have done. I don't think that's the whole truth, but IMHO it is a lot closer to the mark than the alternative.

 

your right.  i thought of it as a choice when i said that, but i dont view belief as a choice, so my premise was flawed.  thanks for further explaining that.
