Lies we were taught

I remember it being beat into our heads in school: "Until the modern era, people hardly made it to old age, cuz diseases and everyone was dumb. A 50 year old was an ooooold person. But now we're smart, we got modrin medduhsinz and all, so now the average lifespan is 70 years old! Hur dur!"

Was reading Herodotus' description of Solon's dialogue with king Croesus. He mentions the average lifespan is 70 years. That was in what, 5th or 6th century BC? 2500 years ago? I think the Bible mentions something about people being expected to live on average 70 years (80 if they got some strength).

What lies were YOU taught?

Re: Lies we were taught

the biggest lies we have been taught are in reference to health and nutrition
*micronutrient vs whole foods
*prevention vs pharmacology
*sustainable vs industrial farming
*relying on annual checkup to stay healthy vs lifestyle

This is a good one. Of course in times past infant mortality rates were high so that brought down the average life expectancy. If you made it through childhood you would usually hit that 70 years.

Energy crisis in late seventies, Al Gore's repeat of the idea with added twist of the polar ice cap totally gone by 2013. Now same old lie that we must have no carbon emissions at all by ten years to save the human race.

Re: Lies we were taught

Implementing the metric system in the U.S. was the begining of the mark of the beast and thus a one world government. This was from the 1970's. That attempt has long since been abandoned. I still remember that being preached when some highway signs were changed from miles to kilometers.

That communism, on paper/in theory, is the best form of human government.

Artificial sweeteners were safe, WMDs were in Iraq and Anna Nicole married for love.
