And scientists are wrong.
Therefore, lying can be ideas and versions that have nothing to do with reality. However, the scientists themselves believe in them and even manage to convince them of the truthfulness of the inhabitants. Calms only one without the constant trial and error there would be scientific progress. In this review, the most crazy theories, which until recently seemed to be a worldwide truth.
It was the idea that the child may inherit features from previous intimate partners of their mother. Telegonia was very popular among Nazis, who believed that the Aryan woman who had an intimate relationship with “non-Aryan” men can not give birth to “pure” Aryan child.
The theory was that miasma (bad air) is to blame for the disease. Before the advent of knowledge about germs in the end of 1800 years, it was the most common explanation why people get sick. The results of the theory of miasma began some very interesting medical decisions. During the middle Ages, doctors often prescribe the patient to smell “the smell of flatulence”. Apparently, it was believed that like cures like, and if the bad air has caused the disease then he can heal her.
3. “Universal popism”
That the Earth is the center of the Universe, believed for many centuries. Only thanks to Nicolaus Copernicus abandoned the model of the Solar system of Ptolemy (Earth at the center).
4. Neanderthals and Homo sapiens
In fact, once identified the gene of the Neanderthals in 2010, researchers found that about 4% of people living outside Africa have this gene. This means that there has been some interbreeding species.
5. Racial genetic variability
In fact, between the human races there is almost no genetic variability. Recent studies conducted in the twenty-first century, even showed greater divergence between African tribes than between Africans and Europeans.
6. Ulcer and stress
It is fundamentally wrong. Ulcers are caused by bacteria, and researchers who proved this, was awarded the Nobel prize in 2005. Moreover, one of the researchers even deliberately infected himself with bacteria to prove it.
7. “Flat earth society”
Previously, it was believed by all, and that it is on the backs of elephants. Despite the fact that this theory was long ago disproved, there are still people who believe in it (for example, the “flat earth Society”).
8. Newton’s laws and quantum mechanics
Quantum mechanics has completely changed the way people understand the world. But before people who would have said that Newton’s laws do not always work, scientists would simply be ridiculed.
9. Bloodletting and germs
Physicians and scientists of antiquity believed that the human body consists of four fluids or “Gumerov” mucus, yellow bile, black bile and blood. If the body ceases to maintain a healthy balance of these Gumarov, then the person becomes ill. This is why bloodletting was so common until 1800 years (when people found out about germs).
10. Hollow Earth
One who ever read “journey to the center of the Earth”, is probably familiar with this theory. Until the end of 1800-ies a lot of people believed that in the center of the Earth is hollow.
11. “Sheep tree”
Although the Greeks were ahead of their time in many ways, they showed crazy confidence that… you can grow lambs on trees. This belief allegedly originated from stories from India where people have described trees on which grew wool. The idea of the lambs, growing on trees, lasted until 1600 years.
12. Time constant
So I thought before Einstein. When he said that light is the only constant, the world thought that the scientist was crazy. Today, however, NASA is forced to constantly adjust your watch, because time works differently depending on how far away the source of gravity. For example, a clock at sea level are faster than the clock on the summit of Everest.
13. Monkeys or birds?
According to a recent study, birds are pretty smart. In fact, some studies have shown that they are even smarter than apes.
14. The Expansion Of The Universe
Until recently, scientists believed that the Universe’s expansion slows due to gravity. However, in the 1990-ies new data showed that the expansion of the Universe is in fact accelerating.
15. “Gold” By Isaac Newton
Although sir Isaac Newton made huge contributions to physics, he was convinced that can turn base metals into gold. Although alchemy was useful — it has been the modern science of chemistry.
