"All I know is that I don't know nothing", said Plato's Socrates. Actually that is the lyrics of an Operation Ivy song, but it's close. When you peel back the onion you find that you know even less than you thought you did. I am full of not knowing, i'm full of questions, and I can write faster than Plato because I have a computer.

I am not one to shy away from an onion over the fear of a few tears. I apologize in advance if I mucked up an issue. Keep in mind this site is a collective search for truth, not gospel.

As a FactMyth.com author I consider my gig more like 'dirty jobs' than a soapbox speech. I'm not an expert, i'm just a guy with a keyboard who knows how to research and write. Expect nothing less than prolificness and many revisions.

On that note, I need your help to make this internet great again!

My team and I need your help to make this free-to-use site the great community driven site it wants to be. It’s as simple as rating factoids, commenting, and sharing the site. Every contribution matters and every contributor is part of the FactMyth.com team.

Together, we can create an epic novel of fact-checked truthiness that can act as a guidebook for up-and-coming generations. If that sounds lofty, it is. All greatness is lofty.

Thomas DeMichele is the head author and content strategist for websites like FactMyth.com, CryptoCurrencyFacts.com, and ObamaCareFacts.com. He also does consulting and is the CEO of Dog Media Solutions; among other things.


98.6°F (37°C) is the Normal Body Temperature Myth

98.6°F (37°C) is generally accepted as the normal body temperature of humans, but this commonly thought of average isn’t normal for everyone.  Studies have shown normal ranges from from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C) according to Mediineplus.gov.

Democrats are Responsible for Trump’s Immigration Policy Myth

President Trump has claimed that Democrats are responsible for his administration’s policy of separating migrant families apprehended at the border. However, this is mostly false, as existing laws were passed by both parties, weren’t commonly enforced to their full extent in the past, and don’t actually require families to be separated. In short, there is no law that requires families to be separated, and it was Trump’s administration who enacted the current “zero tolerance” policy.

Honey Lasts Forever Fact

Honey is sometimes called the only food that doesn’t go bad, this is mostly true. Honey stored properly will essentially last forever due to its unique chemical composition.

Whatever is the Case, is the Case Fact

Whatever is the case, is the case. That is to say, whatever is true is true within a system, is true within that system (for example, whatever is the case in reality, is the case in reality; or, whatever is true in mathematics, is true in mathematics).

Our Solar System is a “Vortex” Myth

There is a video that shows our solar system as a vortex and says the heliocentric model of the solar system we know is wrong. However, the video is wrong and the heliocentric model is correct.
