#1 That Jesus in the new testament was *wildly* opposed to what would become the traditions and practices of Christian fundamentalists.
#2 Based on some disturbing podcasts and articles I’ve been hearing, womens health issues, particularly their pain. Apparently most doctors of both sexes, are quick to dismiss and downplay our pain rather than oh I don’t know treating it?
#3 That financial success has largely to do with Luck (Where you were born, who your parents are, etc)
#4 Built in obsolescence (planned obsolescence) – shocked how many people dont believe it happens
#5 “Invisible” health conditions like Dysautonomia, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Also ADHD. People think you are faking just to get Adderall.
#6 That our memory is very fallible, and does not work like a video camera.
Autism diagnoses. Myself and lots of autistic people I know are often told by people who seem to base their entire knowledge of autism off the movie Rain Man are like “but you don’t seem autistic.”
Research on autism has changed a lot since the 80s but public perception has changed very little.

Skin cancer from not wearing sunblock. It absolutely blows my mind when grown a*s adults brag about not wearing sunscreen. Like it’s a real point of pride for them. Enjoy your early wrinkles and spots.

#19 MLMs are a f*****g scam .
#20 Being 35-50 wasn’t considered “elderly” back in the day. It was common for people to live into their 70s and 80s. The reason we get “average lifespan” data with such low numbers is because so many babies died, skewing the average values downward.
