or since I was reading Demon Haunted World by Sagan:
There is child abuse, and there are such things as repressed memories. But there are also such things as false memories and confabulations, and they are not rare at all.

They occur even in cases where the subject is absolutely confident - even when the memory is a seemingly unforgettable flashbulb, one of those metaphorical mental photographs.
