This is part of a comment I left on someone’s site, they were talking about how atheists just kick back and don’t try to believe in god and how much effort it takes. I said:
As for believing in god taking work – I put a great deal of effort into my worldview, the difference is I work hard to try to understand the universe, not believe this or that about it. I’m sure believing in allah and the koran takes a great deal of work too. It is hard to understand how and why the earth is round, but it is not hard to believe it because we can prove it. It would be hard to believe it was flat though.
True things tend to be hard to understand but easy to believe, false things tend to be hard to believe and easy to understand.
