Hey Sueacct - welcome to the Paleo lifestyle. Not a silly question - you will find a lot of seemingly contradictory information in the Paleosphere.
As a general rule, beans can be hard to digest for many people, but there are also many in the Paleo world that are less negative towards them, so it depends on whose advice/opinion you are following (you will find this with many things Paleo - dairy, agave, etc.).
My advice would be to keep asking, keep searching for answers and ultimately, it is all about finding out what works for you. Here are a couple of links for some additional reading.
