"The idea that all humans are equal."

That's actually a great truth, just have to wait until death. We all end up in the same place.

I'm going to take the contrarian view and say this is the biggest myth:
Everything in the universe has a scientific explanation and we are all just here by random chance.
Something can't come from nothing, so this statement can't be true. Atheism is a fail.

Clark Gable refused to cry in Gone With The Wind because he was afraid it would tarnish his image! And how many others refused to cry on screen?

Close scrutiny of some of the moon shots lays them out to be highly suspect. Simulating the moon men did no harm.
That is an interesting idea, and one that I had never heard before. Thanks for sharing.

For modern U.S. history -- The Warren Commission report on the JFK assassination and the 9/11 Official Report.

(I don't know how much of either one was true and how much was false, but neither one contained the WHOLE truth, imo.)

For older U.S. history -- That the main reason that the first European settlers came to what is now the eastern U.S. was for religious freedom. Although that might be true for all or most of the Mayflower Pilgrims, it was not true for all Europeans who settled on the East coast, and particularly not for those who settled in the Jamestown area.
