it's because they know they will fear the answer.

Religous belief becomes part of a person's identity.  Mucking with identity is extremely painful, even though identities change throughout life.

being confronted with the possibility of changing one's identity based on outside factors (not, say, becoming a parent by choice or picking up a new hobby/sport) will cause defensiveness and evasion.  This is why believers go through apologetics and other mental gymnastics to answer what should be simple questions.

Now you may close the thread.  :-)
