Simple answer

Most people are scientifically ignorant. They don’t learn enough scientific fundamentals in middle and high school. They don’t understand the scientific process. They confuse the scientific term “theory” with “idea.”

Besides, the word “belief” is inappropriate because science is about learning to “know” things. Belief belongs in religion which should never be involved in science.
