10. There is NO Gravity in space
This is utter rubbish, Often a myth taught in schools.
We actually have something in space called zero-gravity or rather micro-gravity that keeps the gravitational physics of things like planets in orbits and forms solar systems.
There is a degree of gravitational force in space, but it's just a considerable less in percentage to that of the earth's gravity where there is something it drops immediately to the ground.
Gravity is what holds the moon in orbit around Earth. Gravity also causes Earth to orbit the sun.
9. We came and evolved from apes
This myth is the biggest misconception among most people and often is taught as a pseudo- scientific fact in school, hence the reason why people always ask....
If we evolved from apes, Why are the apes still here??
The truth is, and scientists will tell you this themselves, infact a quick read of evolution on wikipedia will tell you the same thing.
that we actually just share a common ancestor with apes and primates, and the apes and monkeys we see today evolved from the same ancestor we evolved from.
8. There was three wise men
Actually the bible never once states how many wise men there were, just "wise men".. It does not specifiy the number.
This is another myth created by the roman pagan festival of sol invictus (read more on that 7.)
7. Christmas is the birthdate of Jesus
Many people will often associate Christmas with christianity as the offical birthdate of the messiah, but it's often overlooked.
The roman empire officially adopted christianity as the new faith , but prior to that there has there own pre-existing pagan polythiestic religion, with many roman gods like Venus, Mars and Jupiter.
The Ancient romans did'nt want to get rid of there pagan rituals too much, so they kind of mixed it in with christianity and created "Roman catholicism".
There was a pagan festival called "Sol Invictus" (Meaning birth of the sun in latin) Which idolized the sun worship, it was on 25th of December.
This kind of messed with the romans too much, so when the gregorian calender was created by the romans they change the date of jesus origial birth date to the sol invictus date, so they could still practice their rituals.
Hence why the Christmas tradition to put up a Christmas tree in the house, was already a pagan tradition.
The truth is noone knows when the actual birthdate was, some speculate it could have been near Easter time of the start of the year, others debate calenders.
Infact even some sects and denominations of protestant christians refuse to see Christmas as a actual christian holiday and consider it a pagan holiday.
6. Coffee keeps you awake and gives you energy
Studies have shown conclusively that coffee has no direct link to keeping awake or giving you extra energy.
Infact, it's been observed that drinking coffee actually slows you down and drains you of energy in the long run.
5. Germs don't get on the food if you pick it up fast before 5 seconds
Infact this has no correlation to germs being on the food, regardless of whether the food is on the floor for 5 seconds or not.
The germs would still get to the food...
4. Eve ate a apple of knowledge good and evil
Actually this is a misconception and myth taught by athiests and commonly believed by many.
The bible does not actually specify what kind of fruit it was, only that it was a "fruit", but it does'nt actually say what fruit it was.
So remember eve ate a fruit, not a apple...
3. Illuminati and Freemasonry are the same
Often confused by conspiracy theorists, the illuminati was a bavarian freethinking athiest society formed in 1776 in bavaria,germany by adam weispaut with attempts to infiltrate the catholic chruch and rule the world, they are not known to exist anymore.....
The freemasons are a separate fraternity and secret society having their roots in the knight's templar orders and going back to the crusades of the middle ages, but having the first grand temple constructed in england in 1611.
Often many conspiracy theorists confused the two...
2. There is 365 days in a year
There is actually 365.25 to be precise, the 0.25 accumalates to 1 after four years and a extra day is added evrery four years known as "leap year".
So to be precise, there is actually 365 days and 6 hours in a year
1. Prostitution is Illegal
Actually within many American states it is illegal and a criminal offence, but some states like Nevada it is legal.
Within U.K. however it is legal, the act of soliciting in public however is illegal.
How it goes, is that the trade is often associated with exploitation and drugs and gangs, hence why it is illegal to solicit or curb crawl, but done in privacy it is perfectly legal.
