"Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong.

When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted.

It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance.

And because it is so important to protect that core belief, they will rationalize, ignore, or even deny anything that doesn't fit in with that core belief."
