Why can’t people openly express disagreement instead of treating me like a kid they don’t want to upset (see description)?
“Oh, I didn’t know X was true.”
“Oh, where did you hear that.”
“Oh, that’s interesting, I didn’t know that.”
“Oh, is that true?”
I know it’s coming from a skeptical perspective because when they say things like that, it’s in response to something I’ve overheard them disagree with.

Because we are taught to critically think. To not believe everything we are told unless from credible source. And possibly they do not see you as a credible source on all things. Children lack credibility because of their limited experience, but limited experience is not limited to children, many adults suffer from the same deficit.

Some people are not comfortable openly disagreeing with another's opinion, so they try to soften/play down their opposing mindset, rather than assertively sharing their perspective.

If more than one person handles you this way, then it's one of two things:
Either they are convinced you are crazy (#1 rule of dealing with a crazy person is, don't argue with the crazy person,) or they find you so disagreeable when disagreed with that it's just not worthwhile to engage with you.
