Disregard for facts

Today’s Pearls Before Swine is the latest in a long series of strips on penguins on an ice floe being pursued by a hungry polar bear:

There’s no point in confronting some people with facts; they’ll just deny the evidence, and are likely to cling even more strongly to their beliefs.

(An oddity of these strips is that the first panel has three penguins in it. They devise some method to avoid being eaten, but the polar bear eats one of them anyway. And then in the next strip there are three penguins again. The penguins are, of course, indistinguishable.)
