    Yup. People deceive themselves with what “seems” true, even if faced with non-conforming data that conflicts with their beliefs.

    Part of the reason why Atheists argue so much… useful up to a point, but if no action ever results, just a waste of time.

    It is very difficult to give up your preconceived notions at times. Even some very intelligent people are prone to this. Einstein, at times, when arguing against quantum mechanics sounded exactly like the detractors to his theories of relativity. But many a time the things that are worth doing are not necessarily the easiest.
