Common Misconceptions, Part 2

Common Misconceptions, Part 2

If you thought this was a one parter, no worries. A lot of people thought that.


A common misconception is a viewpoint or factoid that is often accepted as true but which is actually false. They generally arise from conventional wisdom (such as old wives' tales), stereotypessuperstitionsfallacies, a misunderstanding of science, or the popularization of pseudoscience. Some common misconceptions are also considered to be urban legends, and they are often involved in moral panics.
