I remember reading somewhere that the brain is notorious for filling in gaps of real memories with other images to form coherent thoughts. Unfortunately humans misinterpret these brain puzzle pieces as real memories despite reality. Extreme suggestion and conspiracy theory mentality plays into this. Their brains assemble dissident pieces of information and combines them together.

Since it is "their" mind. Anybody doubting them is questing all other memories that may be true. People make the mistake the concept that their brains are infallible.
