Have you ever wondered why people believe things like religion, spirituality, conspiracy theories and political ideology without evidence? Why it’s so hard to change their minds, even after presenting the facts?
Reasons To Believe is a thought-provoking documentary by filmmaker Ben Fama Jr., that explores the psychology and science of belief and why we believe, sometimes falsely, in things that may not match up with reality. Facilitated by leaders in the fields of science, philosophy, neuroscience, moral reasoning, psychology, perception, memory formation, and indoctrination, these experts answer a variety of thought provoking questions and provide tangible structure to the definition and creation of belief in the human brain.
Fama asks the question: Why do we believe?
Starring Michael Shermer, Peter Boghossian, Jennifer Whitson, Caleb Lack and Chad Woodruff.
Directed by Ben Fama Jr. Produced by Mesa Fama
