The mob, having heard Christ, turned against him, and applauded his crucifixion. What it yearned for was the old comfortable balderdash under a new and gaudy name. The result was a code of doctrines so discordant and so nonsensical that no two men since, examining it at length, have ever agreed upon its precise meaning.~ H. L. Mencken, Notes on Democracy

It's a human failing that once you come upon an idea or belief it is very hard to shake that belief and contrary evidence often serves to reinforce the belief. Unfortunately, the petulant ignorant religious fanatics who ignore and distort evidence don't go gently into that good night and would rather burn down The Library of Alexandria than allow knowledge to exist when it does not conform to the bible or koran...
