Dumbest Things People Actually Believe


The Top Ten

1 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

2 Video games ruin society

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.

True.Moms are so dumb.They think all games are violent even though there are tons of nonviolent games and this theory has been debunked so many times.Games can be creative or even help concentration.-TheCoolGuy1

3 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

The main reason religion (Christianity) is so bad, is because people are practically brainwashed into stupid garbage that does exist. if I told you, that Bigfoot was in my house without PROOF, would you believe me? no. if I told you I got laid 5 times in a Day, would you believe that? NO!

4 The earth is flat

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

If the earth is flat then howcome no-one has took a picture of the edge of the world? The idiots who believe this can't answer that question because their claim is wrong, it is a proven fact that the earth is round. - christangrant

Did these people go to school or what?!

People still believe this - Dvafan2

5 All guys think about is sex

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 %$#@

This is stupid u so dirty minded people

Well, if you're 12 years old, sagat, you sure think more in other things. - keyson

6 Deathcore/Grindcore is music

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

7 Life is simple

I actually don't think anyone believes this - SpectralOwl

I believe it is - Bouncy

8 Modern rappers are "talented"

The people who think this have no musical taste...

It's just reading off a script!

True, the talented rappers were the rappers from the late 70's and early 80's. The real talented rappers were from the 60's ( just listen to the group " The Last Poets "! )

No rappers are talented. - KalloFox34

Overrated. - Userguy44

10 All Arabs are terrorists

It's in the Quran.

The Newcomers

? Barney the Dinosaur dropped the F-bomb on live TV and/or got busted for drugs

The Contenders

11 The "Tails Doll Curse"

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

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

12 Metal is "satanic"

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

Christian : god this is from the devil due to the heavy sound

Me: dude are u %$#&ing kidding me!?

I Christian and I like netal ;3

13 Scene bands are "metal"

Yup. People actually believe this - sagat2010

14 The USA is the greatest country

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.

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).

25 The Theory of Evolution

Yah, right. I'm willing to believe that the entire universe in all of it's complexity and wonder is only six thousand years old and was created in seven day's time by a giant old man with a toga and a santa claus-beard and that dinosaurs existed side by side with humans. All of that well proven scientific research, geological study, fossil excavation, DNA comparison and common sense is all just a lie by the homosexuals to create a world government - right ( :

This stupid theory is all the fault of Charles Darwin. Don't get me wrong, he was an intelligent person, but I really think Darwin should rethink his methods before arriving at a conclusion. - RockFashionista

I bet some dumb conservative put this here. I just know it. Not that I'm saying it's wrong to be conservative. Still, I thought it was universally accepted by everyone that the theory of evolution is real. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

If we come from monkeys, then how come there are still monkeys today?

26 Santa Claus

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.

33 Homosexuals are born gay
