People are superstitious. Who knows if it is natural or a product of evolution on curiosity and exploration. In modern times this phenomenon has manifested into weird and unreasonable superstitions. Some are urban legends, some conspiracy theories, religion, folklore and old wives tales. I would like to focus on "sayings" that people actually believe to be true but have no basis in fact.
One I particularly abhor is the saying and belief that
"what comes around, goes around".
For some reason, people actually, believe that this is a fact. They think that all things even out and there is a natural justice in the world. If there were an actual justice in the world at some point the disadvantaged would get a break....all of them not just a meager few.
So do you have any sayings, legends, that is widely accepted but has no basis in proof or fact?
