10 Scientific Hoaxes We All Fell For


Science is such a varied topic; encompassing so very much throughout our world, and even into the known galaxy. Unfortunately for us, we all fell for the tricks that some scientists and members of the public pushed into our faces. Things like crop circles were once thought to be incredible proof of aliens, but in fact was nothing more than a false event taking place. Honestly, guys? People need to get themselves together so we can have more true scientific findings. Here are ten hoaxes many of us fell for throughout the years.

Crop Circles

Crop Circles first began forming in English wheat fields sometime in the 1970s. At the time, many people thought this was due to a UFO landing within said field, but two pranksters came forward claiming it was all them.

The Spaghetti Tree

The Spaghetti Tree, which was shown by BBC in the mid-1950s, was simply amazing. It was thought that a family could harvest spaghetti from the tree, but it turned out to be nothing more than a April Fools joke instead.
