Mythconceptions Debunked

Here’s a place to correct popular belief and set the record straight. I’ll start.
Juan Ponce de León was actually the first person to set foot on what is today the USA.
Lemmings do not commit mass suicide.
We have over 20 senses.

What are the other 15? Do they include the power to read minds? :trollface:


ITS THE 6TH SENSE!!!1!!!1!!

So I decided to post most of the ones i know. This will be a large post, will try to minimize it as much as I can.

Satan is not the ruler if Hell. He is there being tormented, not ruling over it.
Quote from Revelations [quote="Revalation 20:10"] and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into a lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. [/quote]

There is no mention of there only being three wise men in the Holy Bible (New Testament).

The type of fruit that the forbidden fruit is, was never stated in the Bible. Most people say it was an apple, but it’s more likely to be a fig, or possibly a pomegranate based on assumed location.

Jihad does not really mean 'Holy war'; only in a linguistic sense.
More info about the word 'Jihad'.

Jihad means 'struggling' or 'striving'. The word that means war is 'al-harb'. From the religions side, as stated in the Qu'ran and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad(s), 'Jihad' used in a variety of ways. It can refer to the internal as well as the external efforts to become a better Muslim or believer, as well as working to inform people about the faith of Islam.

If Jihad has to be used in a military sense, to protect the faith against others, it can be done with any LEAGAL. diplomatic, and economic to political means. ONLY IF there is no peaceful alternative, Islam can allow the use of force with a set of strict rules of engagement. Them being: Innocents (women and children, or invalids) must never be harmed, and any peaceful overtures from the enemy must be accepted.

Jihad is not the following:

  • Violent Concept
  • A declaration of war against other religions
  • Military action in the name of Islam.

Nowhere in the Qu’ran does it state there are Martyrs and 72 virgins in their heaven. However, it is contained in some supporting texts. It’s a really big debate.

There is no such thing as a sugar rush. It’s just a placebo.

It’s not harmful to pick up baby birds and return them to their nest. I don’t know why people thing mothers would reject their babies…

Blood is never blue in your body. De-oxygenated blood is dark red, oxygenated blood is red. It only looks blue because of your skin.

Penguins don’t mate for life. They have multiple partners in their life.

You more than five sense. The original five sense model is credited to Aristotle!

666 is not the mark of the beast, but instead what the actual “thing” looks like. Ends up it looks like “Jihad” in Hebrew, which is a “beast” in a completely different sense.

Ferdinand Magellan did not make it all the way around the world, but died in the Philippines, due to a spear through the torso. (direct descendant from him, the disappointment is real)

Except, of course, for the people who already lived here (the US).


Nice<No way am I bypassing the char limit (oh wait)

I am a muslim and I agree about what you said. I wish I could really hug you for taking your time and effort to type that and help clear this “myth”. :blush:


Bats are blind.
Nope, they can’t see color, but they can see better than us at night. There are 1,100 species of bats that can see. While they do not see as well as other night hunting animals, they still are not blind.

First Spaniard, maybe. You may have forgotten all the people who were living there when he arrived.


We must also not forget Leiv Eriksson, the most incompetent sailor ever to grace the seven seas! He ended up in Newfoundland in modern-day Canada by accident some 500 years before ol’ Juan, after failing rather spectacularly at returning to Iceland from Greenland :wink:

Oh, and vaccines? They. Don’t. Cause. Autism.


Yes, they do. My pastor told me.


Contrary to popular belief, if a penny is dropped off the empire state building and it hit someone in the head it wouldn’t kill them.

Well then, let me go get my video on why it doesn’t and my video on “let’s say it does, and why you should still do it”

Completely true, because everything has a maximum velocity it can travel at.

Atleast when you’re talking about gravitational pull.

The real question is: Can I throw potatoes down without killing people?

No, the real question is: “Can I throw potatoes down and get instant mashed potatoes?” :trollface:
