Kids don't have ruts yet that adults have carved into their minds. They're born logical. Crooked thinking has to be taught.
The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people are full of doubts.
Scientists are the easiest to fool. They think in straight, predictable, directable, and therefore misdirectable, lines. The only world they know is the one where everything has a logical explanation and things are what they appear to be. Children and conjurors - they terrify me. Scientists are no problem against them I feel quite confident.
