Cognitive Dissonance | "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 the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief." --Frantz Fanon

I'm fully aware that challenging a person's beliefs cause them to double-down. It's a common cognitive quirk in the human mind. Like when a gambler is losing, they put their kid's tuition and food money down to try and regain their losses. If what you believe was never derived from facts, then facts will never change your mind. It takes a major life event to recalibrate most people's belief systems.
