Some truths just hurt too much. Acknowledging them won't set you free, but drag you down to the pits and ruin your constitution. Sad truth be told, some simply cannot withstand the fires of emotional and mental hell that comes with knowing certain facts.

Capt. Religion to the rescue. He'll drug and delude you, intoxicate you with touchy-feely fantasies of love and care by larger than life, larger than Superman characters made out of whole cloth. His analgesic comes in many saccharine flavors: Nothing happens by accident. There's always a silver lining. All will be fine. You are never alone. Death is not the end.

Fiction is palliative care for the weak of heart and mind. Fiction is the truth of choice of those who flinch and turn a blind eye to reality.
