Not sure if this is the right forum but because it’s for a song I’m working on I figure it’s appropriate.
Anyway, I’m working on a homeopathy song and I need some examples of some really old beliefs that people (at the mainstream society level) have held about life and the world, that are generally accepted as false today. E.g that the world is flat, that the earth is the center of the universe, that you can make it rain by doing a dance, etc.
I’m not looking for anything that is controversial to any significant degree. E.g though the scientifically literate among us know the truth of the vaccine-autism scare, the mainstream lay public is still confused.
