3. When I was younger, I'd mention to friends/family certain things I'd read and almost
always they'd say, "Why do you believe that ? That's so stupid." And I'd tell them I didn't necessarily believe it, but I just read it. I learned over time they couldn't discern the difference between reading something (entertaining a thought) and believing it. It was like in second grade when I was the only one who could spell the really hard words. Some people just couldn't see the patterns.
