You Shouldn’t Believe Everything You’re Told (and That’s a Fact!)

Be wary of the “experts”
Don’t believe a word they say –
‘Cause have you ever noticed
That what is right today

Will be wrong come tomorrow?
So it seems, they’re telling lies
Because their “facts” aren’t facts at all,
So don’t be fooled, be wise!

For instance, a palaeontologist
Was sure there was a horn
On an iguanadon (he was wrong).
It wasn’t a unicorn!

And what about discoveries
Made by TV’s “Time Team”?
The ancient bits of pottery
May not be what they seem.

They swear a tiny sliver of clay
Is from a Roman pot –
A massive urn with handles.
How can they tell? I bet it’s not! (Most likely a bit of old flowerpot)

What about astrophysicists
Who choose not to believe
In aliens? It’s ludicrous
To claim it’s certain we’ve

Never had a visit from
An interplanetary alien.
If something has been here
It may not be mammalian.

We might not recognise it
As an entity at all.
It might move too fast for us to see
Or look like a beachball. (Like in John Carpenter’s Dark Star – unlikely, lol)

Years ago we used to think
The world was flat, not round.
It was when that “fact” was challenged
That the truth was eventually found.

What about the scientists
Who told us eggs are good
Then said that they are bad for us?
It’s really a falsehood. (Everything is fine in moderation)

Facts really are not facts at all –
Belief comes into play.
So maybe you should ask yourself
“What facts can I change today?”
