Choice is rarely black and white

"You have a choice about what to believe in one very important respect. You could choose to strive to overcome distorting desires to believe what it suits you to believe, and cultivate the desire to want your beliefs to be well-grounded. The beliefs you would then come to hold would be chosen in the sense that they would be the result of choices you had made about what kinds of reasons to value and how far you were willing to question and challenge your motivations."
