What is the mean of "Many come to think that ..."?

Hi all,
I read these words “Many come to think that …” on a website. But I don’t clearly understand the mean of them.
Please explain it for me.

Thanks,

Many-just a short form of ‘many people.’
come to think- the people never thought about that way before, but now they started think that way.

Hi,

I would suggest an improvement to indicate that this is what people are now thinking:

Many (people) have come to think that …

To Alan,
Many = Many people
But what is the difference “Many come to think that …” and “Many have come to think that …” ?
