It's not actually hard to understand, but does, unfortunately, require a small amount of thought.

Hello, unimaginably great and kind beings. I hope you are well and kicking ass.
There are a lot of things in the world that are very easy to understand, and, yet, most people don't and won't. I think a lot of the reason behind that is that it's hard to think, even just a tiny amount. And there's no reason to think if you know something is a certain way. People usually know things because they are social or religious norms they are brought up with.
Some kids need detailed explanations regarding the earth going around the sun before they believe it. Some kids think that Jews killed Jesus (this is an example from Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, but I'm sure there are real people alive today who believe that).
Maybe something is not quite right?
