7 Things That May be True

Wisdom may be the collection of knowledge that you gather over your life but what’s to say that the information is correct? We’re not discussing the fact that science can often be mistaken or that conventional wisdom shifts on things like red meat every 50 years or so. No, the question here is aimed at your personal storehouse of knowledge: how do you know that what you know is true? Do you have a good source, can you even remember who you heard it from? Not that we’re trying to rock your perception of what you know or to make you doubt everything you’ve ever learned, all we are pointing out is that information, as they say in spy movies, is only as good as it’s source.

On that note, what we’re going to do is give you 7 “facts”- little bits of information that you have to decided the veracity of- think of it as your own little True or False test and click on the sentences to see if the statement is correct or not:

The human head weighs eight pounds.

James Garfield was the 21st President of the United States.

Mars is the fourth planet from the sun.

Dracula is NOT a real person.

An arrow can never hit a moving tortoise.

The Mayans predicted the world would end in the year 2012.

Animals can sense earthquakes.

So, how’d you do? Did any of the correct answers surprise you or were you sure of your information? Maybe now is a good time to consider how you judge the information you receive and which of it, if any, is really wisdom.

    I like this challenge. Wasn’t sure if I had a few of my facts straight on some of them.
