People are not stupid and they know very well when they have seen something out of the ordinary.
The problem with this statement is that it ignores the subjectivity of what is ordinary. An event that one person finds incredible may be entirely normal to another. Failure to recognize this is ignorance. Additionally, it is arrogant to assume one's knowledge of a subject represents the extent of humanity's knowledge.
