It's normal to be curious as to if a century from now what we believe in today, such as the tales that have been passed down through the generations will be laughable.
Just consider this for a moment. Our ancestors have passed down several “truths” and they even put these “tales” into print in the past. Today we consider a lot of these common pieces of knowledge and tales by laughing and being tolerant.
Perhaps it's our great-grandparents who should consider our knowledge today as valid as opposed to thinking everything they learned in the past is true. However, it's important to realize that not everything truthful today is factual, either. Just because we live in a society that has a lot of new technology and we are attached to our smartphones doesn't mean that those “tales” from the past aren't true. At least some of them, that is.
