When faced with the undeniable people “blank out”. They try to sympathize saying it is “only theory” and how things ought to be but are not now. Yet when the “ought” becomes the “is” they still do not want to concede that the undeniable is right.
Some even go as far as to pretend to accept it in the hopes of playing Brutus in the long run, draining the blood out of Caesar slowly until he dies.
I have realized that no one can be old what the truth is. You have to see & accept it for yourself.
