8 minute lesson
Imagine one day we found parts of an alien spacecraft, or skeleton of a Yeti, or Bigfoot! How would finding this kind of evidence for something once believed impossible change the way we looked at the world around us?
Sometimes, we are confronted with the knowledge that changes our perspective on the world around us. Shooting stars changed the way we understand space. The story is a fascinating one, and luckily we have the fabulous content creators, The Good Stuff, to fill us in on this fascinating leap in knowledge.
This story is a good example of how people often hold to beliefs even if there is evidence that points in a different direction. It is important to look at all of the evidence before forming an opinion and to not make a judgment based on a single perspective. By accepting new knowledge, we begin to learn so much more about the world around us and how it works.
Great leaps open up doors for possibility and serve to more fully expand our perspective on the world around us.
