JSH: Let's play a game

For this game I need you to as they say in literature, movies or other fictional settings: suspend disbelief

For the sake of argument, let's say I'm right: I have solved the factoring problem. I found a proof of Fermat's Last Theorem years ago. I found a devastating error in number theory.

But the world has not recognized any of it. Why?

Is there ANY explanation—beyond the obvious that I'm wrong, remember the beginning of the game is the suspension of disbelief—for that happening?

I mean, we have a world of people who should be excited about any one of those things, how could someone have incredible discoveries on such a scale and not have them accepted?

Is it possible that the human species is devolving? Or could there be an alien influence?

It's brainstorming time. Any and all ideas within the parameters of the game are welcome.

Is the human race getting stupider on a worldwide scale?

Or are possibly aliens insuring the demise of the species by acting to prevent its growth in science and technology by blocking continued development of mathematics?

Or something else?
