7 Epic Facts You Should Know

There are a number of facts in this world that can be described as epic. If you think that you already know all there is to know in this world, please reconsider. The best thing about the facts is that they exist independent of us. In other words, the facts do not require the human mind to comprehend to their existence. What? The facts are the only things that can be defined as realities. The ones I would be sharing with you below would truly come to impress almost some of you, if not all. Moreover, it is also likely that some people might not even agree with them. You might have heard about the saying that there is no such thing as reality. Well, I personally do not agree with this saying. The actual definition of reality is the state or condition in which something exist and not what it might appear to us. How can we determine the reality of things while knowing that the human mind and rationality is bounded? We can’t even see most of the wavelengths of light, so on what basis can we falsify things that some people term as unverifiable? This philosophical debate can go forever, so it is best that now I share with you the 7 epic facts you should know. Here they are.

7. Nazism in Modern Germany

It is a fact that Nazism is still visible in the modern Germany no matter the government might accept it or not. But to show the world that Germany has moved on, making the Nazi salute in the country is considered to be a serious offense. Till now, it has not been easy for Germany to undermine the facts of their Nazi Past. Although the approval rating of Hitler in the country is quite low, but still it is enough to make the world thing again.

Most of us

love to criticize the billionaires and millionaires just because we are not what they are. Yes, it is true that some of them might not deserve the fame and fortune that came their way, but applying the same to all of them is not rational.
