Dumbest Things People Actually Believe


The Top Ten

1 Video games ruin society

So stupid - Pokemonfan10

I'm pretty sure a lot of people would be pretty depressed and probably do much worse things with their life. and why is Christian theology at the top? Just say religion in general because I think Christianity makes the most sense out of all of them. I mean there's a religion that worships a pasta god or something. Really when you think about religion or atheism or anything reality just doesn't make sense. So just accept the existence of earth and go with it.

I actually feel sorry for these people. They try to find great things to do with their life; and the best they could find was criticizing video games for one stupid reason or another. Wait, did I say I feel sorry for them I meant I feel sorry for myself for having to listen to these people - sagat2010

Video games don't ruin society, especially with how interactive they have become over the years.

2 Only white people can be racist

I learned in History class that during the 19th century, non-Chinese were considered barbaric by people of said country. So this is not true. - KalloFox34

If you actually believe this, that means your a hypocrite and a racist yourself for having prejudice against them. - christangrant

3 The earth is flat

How stupid do you have to be to believe this? - CharismaticKat

It's already proven that it isn't. Why do people still believe this? - Misfire

Flat earthers bring up dumb reasons.

How stupid can people be?! There is are real taken photos that prove the earth is round

4 Christian theology

Its called faith. there is nothing dumb about it. you all live your lives day in and day out relying on faith though you might not realize but you do. do you ever question a chair before you sit down into it? If you ride in a car you have faith that the people that made the car did it right and that it wont explode the moment you turn the key. you have faith that the bus driver knows what he is doing. you will even trust that your heart, which you can't see, is healthy and that you wont drop over dead when it has happened many times before to people that are health fanatics and you go on about your lives trusting this. you have faith that you wont get mad-cow disease from the meat that you eat cause you have faith that the people who checked the meat were thinking about what they were doing when they were checking the meat and not day dreaming. this is just a very tiny amount of your life. - llamabaconllama37

There is nothing stupid about faith - hockeykid58

To believe in something without any evidence is stupid. Would you believe me if I said that big foot was in my house? - ARandomPerson

I think theology in general is stupid. Not only Christian but also Islamic, judaism and all others are stupid. Every theory that include a god as belief is stupid because irrational!

5 All guys think about is sex

Oh, I barely even think about sex. - JoeBoi

I never think about sex - Userguy44

I don't think so because most of the things I think about are what I should do for a video game review and things related to that. - sagat2010

This is false as %$#@

6 All Arabs are terrorists

That's racist - BananaBrain

It's in the Quran.

7 Life is simple

For some people, maybe but for most, especially those who live in poor/war torn areas, it's difficult. - CharismaticKat

Only the naivete believes this. life is more complex than you think

I believe it is - Bouncy

I actually don't think anyone believes this - SpectralOwl

8 The "Tails Doll Curse"

But it is real! Everything on the internet and especially on creepypasta.com has to be real! - nerffan8000

Yeah, cause a doll version of Tails is going to jump out of your SEGA Saturn and murder you. - sagat2010

9 Modern rappers are "talented"

Well Kendrick Lamar is talented and he's new school. - DarkBoi-X

Some are. - CharismaticKat

No rappers are talented. - KalloFox34

No, of course they aren’t. They just use autotune just so they could sound good when in reality they sound even worse. - JoeBoi

10 The Illuminati

Overrated. - Userguy44

The Contenders

11 Metal is "satanic"

Only stupid normies who listen to pop music believe this. - CharismaticKat

Well, I should make this clear to everyone that all metal is not satanic. In fact metal is divided into various genres, like Thrash Metal, Death Metal, Black Metal, Speed Metal, Metalcore, and so on. It's only the Black Metal which is somewhat Satanic (It's name makes everything clear) and death metal too indulges in supernatural themes (like biblical allusions). But Thrash Metal is different from all of them. It talks about real life problems and the dirty political situation of a country. Thrash Metal consist of bands like Metallica, Megadeth and so on. So it's a prejudice if you consider all Metal Satanic. And if you still have any doubt in your mind, listen only to Thrash Metal. That's the perfect solution and an eye opener. - Kiteretsunu

I honestly think this is the dumbest thing people actually believe.

I love Metallica! 1 - SammySpore

12 The USA is the greatest country

Bullcrap. My homeland is so flawed (in fact, almost all countries are flawed in every way. There really isn't any greatest country at all).

Greatest country in terms of military power and global influence, yes. However, in terms of quality of life, healthcare and wealth, no, there are much better 1st countries in those categories. But however, the United States is not one of the worst either. It heavily depends on the state and area too. Having a good life in the US can be as good as most other 1st world developed countries if you make the right financial decisions and live in a good area with low poverty and crime.

Not true! People elected a clown ( yes, I'm talking about Donald Trumpet ) who said many times during his campaign " America will be great again ". Which means that America isn't the greatest country. FYI, it will never be the greatest country. There are too many stupid people in the US.

This is a true fact.

No piece of land belongs to any specific group of people. Everyone should have the liberty of choosing where they want to live. No borders, no wars, just freedom!

Israel is the biggest post WW2 mistake the world has ever made.

It's still music, just very noisy music. - Userguy44

Ehh, I've never listened to it. - CharismaticKat

It's just screaming and random thrashing. If you hear one song you hear all of them. - SammySpore

26 Santa Claus

Only little kids believe in him - ElSherlock

I've never believed in Santa. How can he be so fat, rides a sleigh guided by FLYING REINDEER, delivers over 1,000,000 presents to people all over the world in less than one day, and go through a CHIMNEY?! I would also be creeped out knowing that a stranger is coming into my house, giving me charity I don't need. I don't get why people actually believes in this. Even I (I'm not even a teenager) do not believe in Santa, so other kids should not be brainwashed into believing such a stupid legend. And no one can live forever and make a list about EVERY CHILD. I don't need him watching me to see if I am good or bad, I need my privacy!


My brother is 9 years old and he still believes in santa. I tried to convince him otherwise but he doesn't believe me. There's even scientific facts but he still doesn't believe me. If santa really existed he would have to travel so fast that he and the reindeers would explode and create a sonic boom that would make every pane of glass explode. Also where does he get the money to make his presents? - SammySpore

Little kids believe this. This ain't that dumb.

Atheists are mean and evil? No. we just have actual logic, that you religious do not properly understand.

I'm an athiest and I'm really nice I bet Brian Griffin was the cause of the belief that athiests are mean because he is an athiest - Ihateschool
