Common Misconceptions Thread
I just saw someone say that they went to an "astrology museum". It boggles my mind how someone would not know that the correct word is "astronomy", even after they went to the astronomy museum. What common misconceptions have you encountered?

They're obviously wrong but I think it's because the problem of evil is often brought up, and they misinterpret that as "being angry at god".

I used to have a book of these lying around. Lots of stuff contrary to popular belief, misquoted quotes, an entire section dedicated to the fact that Paul McCartney didn't die, etc.

That one can believe in evolution.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
