I have been studying this phenomenon for some time and have come to the view that there are basically two reasons for this.
If that's all you can come up with, then I suggest you do some more studying.
Yeah, yeah, responding to an off-topic message. I know.

It was the past and there is little record.
Actually, there's quite a bit of record. In several different fields of science. That is confirmed by several independent methodologies. And the record is quite clear what the past was. Some people don't want to acknowldege that, though.

"We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the same sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart."
