I can explain it, if you want to join CircvsMaximvs and start a thread on it with your question.
McKellen's character spells it out in the movie, but it was a little disjointed if you didn't listen to every single word he says. Now, things may not go down as he says; he's an obsessive looney-tune willing to go to tremendous lengths and murder to cause what he thinks will happen. Probably what would happen is that the proof would just be ignored after all this long a time. It might change the minds of some of the undecided or the especially dogmatic but I don't see things going down as he seemed to think they would.
