Top 10 Factually Wrong Statements

I made a list of morally wrong opinions and now I'm gonna make one about factually wrong ones. And like I said on my previous list, I respect opinions that CAN'T be proven wrong such as liking a show, movie, game, song, etc. that others don't.

And if you have one to share, feel free to add it.

The Top Ten

1 The earth is flat

Nobody ever actually believed this, it was metaphoric. People knew the earth was round nearly 10,000 years ago, once they started sailing the ocean. What they did not know was how large it was.

The dinosaurs died when a meteor hit the Earth and flung them into space! - Cyri

The sun round, moon round, stars round, but the earth is flying through space like a frisbee. - Batmaniscole

I mean, all of these statements are equally factually wrong (almost)

2 The holocaust never happened

Bull crap statement. There are photos, survivors, and some of the survivors literally have their camp numbers still tattooed onto them. And the ruins of the camps are still around. Need more evidence? - PackFan2005

Right, even with an incredibly large collection of artifacts, documents, videos, stories from holocaust survivors, and locations, it couldn't have POSSIBLY happened. - isaaonrtdmtr

3 There are more than 2 genders

Gender is about self identification. If you can identify with neither male nor female, then nothing speaks against that. You are what you feel like.
One could say that the person who added this meant "sexes" instead of "genders", but even this wouldn't be a factually wrong statements as hermaphrodites do exist. - Martin_Canine

Gender is not biological, it's a social construct. There are however many genders as a society recognizes, and some societies recognize more than two genders. - Y2K

There are 3 genders, pumpkin is 1 of them. - AlphaQ

Ok seriously there are only 2 genders.As a left leaning person myself I am sad that SJW's had to ruin Centre-left politics.I consider them to be far left though. - DarkBoi-X

4 Santa Claus is real

I once heard from a friend of mine that he knew this 13-year-old kid who still believed in Santa at the time. Pretty weird isn't it?

I believed in Santa Claus right up until I was 10 going on 11 years old. Even THAT is much older than when most children give up believing in Santa. - clusium

Parents are basically Santa Claus - Mcgillacuddy

If you want to prove he's real, go travel to the North Pole and search for him. - isaaonrtdmtr

Santa is a naked mole rat. - AlphaQ

5 Dinosaurs never existed

Don't insult Christians. You obviously have no idea what 'most Christians' believe.

This is what most crazy Christians believe (they think that Satan actually put dinosaur bones into the earth to fool us into thinking they were real).

6 Jesus Christ was white

This is an odd entry in the top 10. Jesus was a Middle Eastern Jew, which arguably can be considered white. (Like gender, race is a social construct.) - Y2K

That's an interesting twist... - Metal_Treasure

Wrong again! He was fictional! - PositronWildhawk

Jesus isn't fictional. Most historical scholars agree that Jesus existed. - Crwth

He was probably Semitic, but he was not an "Arab."

7 Redheads turn into vampires after death

But seriously, who believes this? - SpectralOwl

If this is true I want to be a redhead now. - AliciaMae

If this was real, I'd die to be a redhead. - Swellow

My dreadlocks are kind of red. DOES THIS APPLY TO DYED HAIR. HELP! - AlphaQ

8 Adolf Hitler is still alive

He died in 1945 at 56. If he was still alive today he would be 129. I know some humans live long but I'm not sure if they can live that long (but hey ya never know).

He died like what, over 70 years ago…? That’s a long time and he died in his 50s. - AlphaQ

9 Only girls have blonde hair

Preposterous. However, in correct spellings, only girls have "blonde" hair. Guys have "blond" hair. - Crwth

My hair proves this wrong. - PackFan2005

That's a strange myth! - clusium

Have you people seen anyone? - B1ueNew

10 Communism works

If it does work then why was it always a failure. - DarkBoi-X

No, this is perfect. - Not_A_Weeaboo

The Contenders

11 Our eyes shoot out beams of invisible light

The bottom four are only things people believed in the Middle Ages.

12 Vaccines cause autism
13 God is a woman

No one believes this statement other than Ariana Grande - B1ueNew

14 Bees are birds

Who even believes this? They have similar things like wings and they are both capable of flying, Well some birds. - EDT

Bees are ’ ants, Dude. - AlphaQ

15 Elvis Presley is still alive

Okay but like even if he's not still alive rn he could have lived longer than he supposedly did.

16 Princess Diana was murdered

She was killed in a drunk driving accident, while trying to escape the paparazzi. Accept it everybody! - clusium

She wasn't murdered, just killed in an accident. Get your dictionaries straight. - isaaonrtdmtr

I only voted on this because it's the only way I can comment. Don't there have to be definitive proof for something to be fact or not? People probably would of assumed that the terrorist attack at Oklahoma City was caused by arabs, if it weren't for the detectives at the scene that figured out an American had caused the attack. There are things in life the public may never know the truth to, like who killed 2pac, or if the deaths of Marilyn Monroe or Kurt Cobain were really suicide. Since there's no definitive evidence that Princess Diana being murdered is factually wrong, this really shouldn't be on the list.

17 God is male

Deities don't have sexes so this doesn't make any sense.

24 Evolution and the Bible are compatible

Wrong! That is not a "factually wrong statement." They ARE compatible. - clusium
