5 lies I grew up believing are true

Well, before I started using my brains I used to believe everything that was said by my teachers or my parents or anyone without researching it. So, today I want to share 5 lies I grew up believing are true.

Trust me once you start researching about things, you may one day discover that your whole life is a lie.

So, here are 5 things that I always thought were true. But, with time I discovered they are not. Maybe you could relate to a few of them. Do tell me in the comments if you did relate to any of them.a

1. Humans come from monkeys

Well, we think that Charles Darwin said that humans come from monkeys. But, the reality is that he never said it directly. In his work “On the origin of species” he stated that monkeys, apes, and humans must have a common ancestor because of our great similarities compared to other species.

5 lies I grew believing.

2. We have only five senses.

Well, some scientists insist that we have at least 21 senses including balance, pain, and temperature.

5 senses of humans.

3. If you eat your nails a tree will grow inside your stomach.

I think most have us have heard this lie by our parents a million times during our childhood whenever we used to chew our nails, so that we stop our bad habit of eating nails.

5 lies I grew believing.

4. Complan increases height.

No, No, No it doesn’t. But you can still drink it if plain milk sounds boring to you.

5 lies I grew up believing.

5. Bulls hate red.

Hmmm, ever ran away from a Bull because you were wearing red? Well, I did many times. But, Bulls are actually color blind. It’s not the color red. They actually perceive the motions of bullfighters cloth as a threat.

5 lies I

Well, those were the 5 lies that I grew up believing are true. I hope you could relate to some of them. Also, if there are any more lies that you always thought are true until now, do share them with me.

Bye, bye till the next time. Stay safe, stay happy, and stay positive.

So interesting! Truths debunked haha I too thought bulls dislike red! I also think the idea of us having more than 5 senses it’s so fascinating, in school I loved learning about pain, temperature, and balance and how we perceive them. They really are like senses! Thanks for sharing

Yep I definitely believed these too. Also that eating carrots will help you see in the dark and eating crusts of your bread will make your hair curly?

Such an interesting post! The one about senses I think is so interesting I hadn’t considered that things such as balance or temperature are a sense but of course that makes sense!

Wow, I never knew about either the number of senses or the bull stuff!

Hahaha great post, it made me laugh a lot! The nails thing actually never really made sense to me, but I can’t say I haven’t been scared when I saw a bull when I was wearing red 😂

Interesting food for thought! I am curious your first hand experience with the bulls. Did you grow up on a farm? Or do the infamous running of the bulls? Oh my! At any rate, I shall take your word for it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

Interesting post! I had never heard about 3 and 4 before today. I had heard similar ones, but not that. Also, not sure if you ever saw the Rugrats cartoons, but since I was younger (because of that show) I used to think if you swallowed seeds, they would grow inside you haha I think they say that about watermelon seeds. Thank you for sharing.
