So, so many things we learned in science class(14) have turned out not to be true.

Same here. I learned that the periodic table had 103 entries (last time I checked it had 118). I learned that everything alive was either a plant or an animal (never mind that bacteria, protists, and fungi aren't in either of those groups). I learned that the solar system had nine planets. I learned that protons and neutrons were fundamental particles. (How will I recover from unlearning all of that?)
