Why do people argue facts when it's presented to them?

Is it because they can't accept the facts? That truth is stronger than beliefs? Why are we so set on believing in something that can't be proven and deny everything else that is real? Ever wonder this?

  • It does seem odd but who am I to judge.

  • Perhaps because each person's facts don't match anothers?

  • Because everyone is entitled to their own opinions and have the right to express their opinions.

    Those are opinions and opinions can change which is why it's hard to rely on opinions. Facts can't change. The grass is green. The sky is blue. Things like that. Whether you like it or not that's how the world is.

  • Because one mans facts are another mans fantasy everyone is entitled to believe as they wish. I work on what I believe and let others believe what they want.

  • Everything is debatable... Even "fact." Especially if we're talking religion, where there is little to no "fact" involved in.

  • Yeah facts do not change but the people looking for them do.

  • I was brought up Catholic, but am an extremely pro-science atheist now and I can say getting past the whole "leap-of-faith" thing is VERY tough. You are taught to believe that people will try to mislead you, so you are always wondering if that is happening. Once you finally get past that, it's like stepping through the smoke screen, everything seems clear and you feel silly for ever believing what you did.

  • The truth is too ugly where as beliefs are far more beautiful. It's more beautiful to keep your head above the clouds than it is to see the ugliness that it conceals.

    I guess it depends on who's eyes you're looking through... If you're color blind, it's all gray.
    If you don't ever question something, simply because someone else tells you it's fact, you're going to fall prey to A LOT of propaganda, schemes, lies and misleading "facts."
