In Harry Potter why didn't they just show his memories in the pensive?

They showed Dumbledore's memories why couldn't they do the same to show that Harry was not lying about Voldemort being back?

Well maybe because they know that even if they show Harry's memory in the pensive... the Minister is so close minded that he will believe only what he wants to believe... he will also say that the pensieve changed was magically changed by Dumbledore so it will show that Voldermort is alive... There are so many what if's in Harry Potter that the only person who can really explain is J.K. Rowling...

You have a good point about it being majically changed.

I believe that the ministery of magic, just didnt want to believe Voldemort was back. If I remember correctly, they were making up rumors too about Harry Potter, that way he wouldnt have any credit. So I believe they just didnt want to believe it, that way it wouldnt be true. Do I make any sense?

I get you. They were all just in denial about the whole thing.

As seen in book six, there are ways to edit your memories in the pensieve by magic. Anyway, the minister didn't want to prove harry right, so he would never think of giving him a chance to give evidence

Because J.K. Rowlings is not that good of a writer.

Excuse I beg to differ. Then why is she an author of books that everyone on the face of the planet knows about it? She probably did this because it was to keep the anticipation up or maybe the suspense in it all. if she did that then there wouldn't be much left to write about. She is a very good author. I wouldn't doubt if she came up with another book series that the world falls madly in love with again. Harry Potter has not only made children's imaginations come to life, but adults. She did all of that. Not you, not Steven King. She did!

Well Fudge was not going to believe Harry anyway....till he sees who-know-who with his own eyes he was in denial wasn't he? so even if someone could show him Harry's memory he would have argued it was tampered or something.....

i had to be like it was because the plot was planned in that way and one more thing the ministr of magic did not want to believe that voldamort is alive as he was afraid that dumbledore was try to take his office and no matter what would have happened he would not have believed it

we know that, Harry is the most special one at that school, maybe, the reason is that no one has the power to show his memory because of his background and his strong and strong born ability.
