People think that by relying on over-simplifications, they will achieve a clearer understanding of things. Inaccuracies never made anything clearer. People are afraid to analyze not only because it is more difficult than making a pre-judgement, or relying on faith, or being satisfied with a hypothesis. What they are more afraid of is TRUTH. Because the truth will make them realize the gravity of their responsibility. Not just as individuals but as a specie. And no one wants to face that reality.
