In the End We Have to Choose

Johan Lehrer’s article “The Truth Wares Off” talks to what we know.
He wraps it up in the final lines:
The decline effect is troubling because it reminds us how difficult it is to prove anything. We like to pretend that our experiments define the truth for us. But that’s often not the case. Just because an idea is true doesn’t mean it can be proved. And just because an idea can be proved doesn’t mean it’s true. When the experiments are done, we still have to choose what to believe. 
And so we’re left where we began, with ourselves.
Science and all its innervations are great, but it falls apart when it goes against our nature.
When science tells me that GM food is better, that’s not right. 
That my organic fruit hold’s no value, that’s not right.
And that the future of health is found in a pill, it’s just not so, not for me, I don’t believe it.
When it comes down to it the other stuff just feels better.
Sometimes things can’t be measured.
 In the end we have to decide, we have to choose: courage, boldness and a life that fits.

 And if that means paying a little more for an apple, I’m up for it.
