    since it lacks the strength of the religious sense of the word "belief."

    •  Sometimes it is important to review (2+ / 0-)

      some of our "older" thought forming concepts such as that of the "true believer" put forth in:

      "The True Believer: Thoughts On The Nature Of Mass Movements is a 1951 social psychology book by Eric Hoffer that discusses the psychological causes of fanaticism." Wikipedia.

      I think that the false beliefs of the climate change denier in fact emulate the false beliefs of most religions.  Whether it lacks the strength or not remains to be seen.
