Why do some people feel the need to make up an answer to a religious question, when they could not possibly know the truth?

E.g. In answer to the (admittedly rather silly) question, "Was Jesus a good dancer?", one Christian replied, "jesus did not dance". I realise there is no verse that recounts him dancing, but surely it would have been a perfectly normal and respectable thing for someone to do in that society.
