WHAT DO WE REALLY KNOW ABOUT OUR WORLD?
We might reply everything or nothing. Both these answers are wrong and right at the same time. Some facts are lies in our History Books.
Confused?? Yes, of course.
We know some pieces of general information about the universe, historical events, and personalities. Some of us believe that the information we find in there can’t be 100% trusted because some of the facts are really doubtful.
Here We Have Listed The 7 Biggest Lies Told in History Books That You Still Believe In.
DISCOVERY OF AMERICA
Look into any history book and its pages will tell you that Christopher Columbus put his foot on the American ground in 1492. We were taught that Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492, But he did not actually discover America.
Thousands of years ago, Nomadic tribes from the Bering Land Bridge across Alaska used to be settled in America. After a few days of the Nomadic tribes living in that land (which was then not called America), the Vikings also moved there. This is not a made up story because the fact that the Vikings moved into that land, had evidence.
You must be wondering why did the history books lie to us. Well, the history books did not lie to us completely. Before Columbus’ voyage, nobody knew about the land and it was he, whose voyage created colonization and conquest of natives. He was the man to give the land the name “America.” So that he basically discovered America but life in that land was even before Christopher Columbus’ voyage in 1492.
