because the truth is less believable than the lie.look at it this way my grandparents have a set belief system there pretty old so if i was to tell them about the horrible crimes the vatican have committed their belief in "heaven" in the traditional sence would be shattered in there twilight years,same goes for my parents they have too much to deal with just trying to live in a world that changes evey week with new tech.it will be this generation and the next one and so on that will change if its not to late if there given the chance but this wont happen without huge sacrifice from everyone.

Because...

The only truth I have ever come across has been subjective. So it must be to everyone else as well - even CornBread.

Because they don't want to think that they've been living with all these lies around them since they were born. That's why most people think you're nuts when you talk about what's really going on. They want to stay happy even if it means living in a lie.

Ignorance is bliss.

Still, we need to keep digging for the truth and wake people up.

"knowing the truth" is a dogma

Wiki says...Dogma is the established belief held by any kind of organization: it is authoritative and not to be disputed, doubted or diverged from.
I say truth is universal...there really is only one truth...either the football player fouled or didn't. just because people perceive the truth differently doesn't change the truth.
People don't want to know the truth because they suck....that is my final answer

There is so much truth, but its mixed up with lies and hidden agendas and when you work all day all people want is an easy life, is that too much to ask for?, not if it means that your gift of free will/thought is indeed regimed.

All of written history, is filled with those who quest for truth.
How could this be?
Because there are those that benefit from lies.
As long as those in positions of authority and rule, benefit from lies, the truth may never be known.
So we are doomed, on a never ending quest.
Because we do not demand justice. We fail.
