Some facts are so weird or strange that it becomes hard to digest them. Our history is hiding so much that if we start to turn the pages, they will never end.
There is a lot about past which we haven't heard even once but when we start to unwrap the covers, a lot of unexpacted and unimaginable facts can be found which may break our old myths.
Here are some pictures from the history that you know, but your eyes can't believe.
Christianity has always been the religion of choice for Western people for well over a thousand years now, the most prominent figure in that religion, Jesus of Nazareth, has come to be popularly depicted as a white guy. Jesus was of Middle Eastern origin. Moreover, scholars agree that he was an ordinary man, and would have looked like an average man of his place and time. The following picture is an artist's rendering, but Jesus would have looked more like this portray on the left than the on the right.
The famous ancient Pyramids at Giza are made of marvel. These ancient Pyramids have gone through extreme weather. The sandy bricks we see now are merely a base structure. Few originals still left inside the Pyramids.

Columbus has not only discovered the America but changed the idea that the Earth was flat in the process. We know that Columbus deserves praise for neither of these discoveries, as scientists have opened evidence of ancestral knowledge on both subjects. We now know that ancient scholars such as Aristotle and Pythagoras knew that the Earth is round. Literate Europeans in Columbus' time also knew that the Earth is a sphere.
The Archaeologists have found enough evidence from ancients that the iconic ancient Greek statues once spotted bright colors. Some of their texts even include animations of painted statues. Over the period, natural wear and weathered events and tear eroded the paint from the stone. However, Renaissance artists idealized this minimalism, which echoed their ideas on purity and strength. The oft-imitated austere white 'Greek style' was burned into consciousness from that point.
Cinema and other forms of culture portray the ninja as a guy in the special mask and whacky black clothes. Though, to be a ninja, it was an art form. Skilled mercenaries are trained to be lethal, and to be lethal you have to be furtive. Hence, they dressed much like ordinary farmers, monks, merchants, and so on. If you were trying to detect the enemy, you wouldn't want to wear those pair who screams I'm a ninja.
