How do you deal with people who argue and insist they are right when you know they are wrong?


Why do some people argue even if it is obvious they are wrong? I once had someone argue with me that A.D. in dates means "after death" rather than a Latin phrase meaning "in the year of our Lord." They were adamant about their stance. I have a relative with a creative memory. She'll argue points from the past about events that never happened. How do you handle arguments when you know you're right but the other person won't hear your reasoning? I've taught my kids not to argue with the creative memory relative since it's pointless to argue even when you're right. Is that really best?
