This is the sort of thing that almost makes a believer out of me

It's as if there's a hidden power actively interposing between people's souls and the truth. A dark power that is, which subtly and spiritually threatens them when they are confronted with uncomfortable notions.

It's not a matter of 'i don't believe you'. These people seem to be willing to believe, but would rather avoid the question than know the answer.

In reality, I think it's that fear of social pressure. People are programmed to fear some imaginary bully that will call them crazy, weird, or a nerd were they to explore alternative ideas.

Public schooling at its best.
