For a long time, people thought our solar system revolved around the Earth. Copernicus (or Galileo to some) came around and proved the planets revolved around our Sun.

Models are important - they are the perspective of an individual's perception of any given event. Models are always biased, but the objective should be to choose a model with the least bias possible.

How is this achieved?

Scrutinize opposing aspects, think critically, and have an open mind.

"All Truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident."

- Arthur Schopenhauer

Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.

- Mark Twain

The Stone Statues in Easter Island Have Bodies! - Thanks to J!!

This is absolutely incredible.  Here we’ve been thinking for all these years that they were just heads.  They are going to be absolutely huge when they are completely excavated.  It all just adds to the mystery of these amazing sculptures.  Maybe now they can get more information about them seeing as they have writings on them.
