Do people actually understand the theory of relativity?

Generally, no. After watching some relativity youtube videos, remembering the stories my teachers told me, and reading many of the answers on Quora, my conclusion is : no. People here and on youtube do not understand relativity at all. Even those who teach the stories of the paradoxes to students largely don’t know what they are talking about.
