"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?

i believe he's referring to "I believe that one to" as in the mistake

actually Columbus made it to the Bahamas. Vikings found North America.

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.

Hahaha I never noticed until now that nyou pointed it out and your so correct XD!!!

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.

I've definitely seen this somewhere before. Yeah, it's funny, but 0 points for originality.

Yes, but you stated obvious facts before, then you stated a strangers opinion. I would try it out.

he (columbus) actually didnt go to the Americas, he landed on some island and thought it was america.

well he was ACTUALLY looking for India. not America.. so how could he think it was america? he thought it was India.

@CompletelyAwkward7 well he was ACTUALLY looking for India. not America.. so how could he think it was america? he thought it was India.

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!

@he (columbus) actually didnt go to the Americas, he landed on some island and thought it was america.

yeah thats why he called the Native Americans "Indians" because he thought he was in India

(Common Sense): but the post doesn't state that he was the first one to sail to the new world..

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.

@mlpanda13 Wait, he was the first one to sail to the new world! The Native Americans walked there, so he was the first to...

nope the vikings were. they sailed to Canada's coastline.
I was just pointing out to "Common Sense" that the post doesn't specify that Columbus was the first, only that he sailed in 1492.

@CompletelyAwkward7 nope the vikings were. they sailed to Canada's coastline. I was just pointing out to "Common Sense" that the post...

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.

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