Beliefs and opinions sure can get in the way, but the problem is not necessarily that they are always changing; on the contary, they are all too often stubbornly resistant to change. On the other hand, the capacity and tendency of our understanding to undergo change is proportional to our ability to assimilate new data and acknowledge its relevance.
