5 Wrong Theories in Old Science

Humanity has gone through  many studies and thousands of discoveries so we could know what we know today. But not everything has been easy, numerous theories and hypothesis turned out to be wrong thanks to the perseverance, intuition and curiosity of great scientists that brought them down.

With this said, I number 5 theories that long ago were thought to be absolute truths but we now know are far from being facts:

  1. Alchemy can change lead into gold, is able to create the philosopher’s stone and the life elixir.
  2. The Earth is 6,000 years old.
  3. The Atom is the smallest particle in the Universe.
  4. Heavier objects fall faster than lighter ones.
  5. The liver is the organ who is in charge of sending blood to the entire body.

The statements above were firmly believed. This is one of the main reasons why we must not be surprised if what we think today turns out not to be true in a near future. That’s why it is really important to constantly:

  • break paradigms,
  • refuse any type of dogma,
  • think outside the box,
  • innovate,
  • question what has been stipulated by others or by ourselves, and
  • always keep questioning.

Finally, I would like to bring out this video in which Steve Jobs shares a couple of thoughts with Stanford’s graduated students in 2005. If you haven’t seen it, it will definitely leave you a couple of things to think about, and if you have already seen it, it’s worth watching it again.

How far is it to the center of the Earth?

The distance from the surface of the Earth to its center is about 3,963 miles (6,378 kilometers). The planet is mainly fluid. The solid part of the Earth, manzanaits surface, is only 41 miles (66 kilometers) thick; thinner than the skin of an apple, relatively speaking.

Food, Inc. I Want to See it

As it seems this movie will make us open our eyes to see what’s behind and how the food industry really works.

TakePart has developed many documentaries with the purpose of promoting an eco-friendly culture and social equity. It has developed works like An Inconvenient Truth, Angels in the Dust, Darfur Now and The Visitor.

Some ideas to think about and consider that will be exposed in the film:

  • Food nowadays is no longer produced in farms but it is instead produced in factories.
  • Fruits and vegetables seasons no longer exist. You can find tangerines in summer and mangos in winter. The cost and environmental pollution of their importation are just part of the problem.
  • The profit of food companies is in many cases much more important than the health of the final consumers.

Below a taste of what we’ll see:

According to this link it will come out in the summer in the United States, I hope it soon gets to Mexico.

After seeing this film, will we all become vegetarians?

I want it

I have to say that I have a little problem with having to wake up early in the morning and for the same reason I have a problem with the sound of the alarm clock too. I don’t recommend anyone to wake me up, I can assure you you’ll not receive the best reaction. Fortunatelly I have found the ideal product, and if you have the same problem, for you too.

reloj despertador

To turn the alarm clock off the user must punch the device and by doing this he can vent his anger with the cause of his misfortune. And besides, it’s pretty.
