Why do people believe weird things?


I know someone who genuinely believes in faeries. Some people believe Uri Geller really bends spoons with his mind. Some people believe Jesus and the Greek gods were aliens. Some people believe the Queen of England is an evil reptilian creature in disguise. (Google "David Icke.") And the weirdness certainly doesn't stop there. Just because an idea is weird doesn't necessarily mean it's wrong. I'm curious about why you think people come to believe such odd things. Feel free to take your answer in any direction that seems right.
