It's proverbial.  And the reason has always been the same, that liars can make a better and more attractive story.

In modern terms, science's problem is that an honest scientist will rarely say "we know this for certain, no ifs or buts."  But charlatans are absolutely sure they are right, which makes them far more convincing.

Than play a sanctimonious part with a pirate head and a pirate heart.
