"George Washington was the first president." OK, I'll buy it. "There are billions of stars in the galaxy." I believe that one too. "Columbus sailed to the new world in 1492." He sure did. "Careful sir, the plate is hot." I'm going to test this one out for myself, amirite?

OP is saying that whenever someone tells you something you usually believe them. but if they say something is hot, you touch it anyway.

Ah, a smart person. They consider him the first president because the Articles of Confederation SUCKED and very few people liked the government at that time.

Wait, he was the first one to sail to the new world! The Native Americans walked there, so he was the first to SAIL there, just not to ARRIVE there.

nope the vikings were. they sailed to Canada's coastline.

The Vikings are touch and go on that subject. Some historians say Canada, some say Cuba, and others say around the US.
You're correct, but I felt the need to point out that he was *in some people's opinions, not all* the first to sail there. The first comment said that it was wrong. I pointed out a technicality.

WE do this because we can prove whether or not the plate is hot for ourselves. But we cannot prove for ourselves that Columbus even existed... so we just believe it because everyone else says he sailed in 1492.

To be perfectly honest, he never once believed it was a new continent. He died still believing he had reached India. It wasn't until much later that people discovered the error.
Also (for anyone that's curious) America was named after Amerigo Vespucci. he did not name it after himself, though, but a German mapmaker named it.
If you don't know who Amerigo Vespucci is, Google it, because that's all I got!

So this comment conversation has basically turned itself into a discussion about Christopher Columbus.

There's arguments about that one. Many people believe that, others believe the Columbus/America story and that the Vikings found Iceland, Greenland, and parts of Canada.
