While patternicity (I enjoyed Shermer's last book) might lie at the root of this problem, I wonder if education might share part of the blame? High School science, for example, seems more intent on nudging students past the finish line (via standardized tests) than helping them to think critically. When one questions everything (a la Einstein), and thinks critically, the "truth" becomes suddenly attainable.
