The answer, at the root of things, (for Christianity, in the least) lies in the nature of the belief itself.

The Bible claims to both be the complete word of God and possess no fallacy. The Bible states that it is fact, and those who believe in the Bible and God, by default, must believe that their beliefs are fact.

It's the nature of belief, I suppose, to be contradictory and emotional in and of itself.
