Why people don't get science

Old science texts are highly descriptive of properties of materials, Today's science texts contain theories of matter and energy, but very little description. Observation first hand often does not correspond to what is written in the book. But - nothing written is an obvious falsehood - or even a deliberate falsehood. We just need to go back and check premises. And be in touch with reality, which doesn't quite ever fit theory.
