School: Don't Believe Everything You Hear
"Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear."
Granted, those words represent an exaggeration. Still, we shouldn't accept everything we hear. And that includes everything we're taught in school. Some of it is bound to be wrong. This is historically proven.
"The sun rotates around the earth."
"The earth is flat."
"Blood should be let to improve the health of the sick. It lets out the bad humors."
Statements of supposed fact need PROOF.
In addition, one theory might be proven. This does not automatically mean the other theory is wrong. Consider my article (one of my very favorites) entitled The Origin of Crude Oil or Petroleum: Biotic or Abiotic?
It's really not hard to understand, to follow.
