Sometimes, the bigger the lie, the easier it is to miss. That was the case with the Piltdown Man, where a human skull cap was matched with an ape’s jaw and planted for someone to find. That fooled experts for 40 years. The Miller-Urey experiment was the big headline that suggested that life could be created in the test tube. But the experiment was a failure. These lies can be perpetuated by having a headline that says one thing but the details of a study show exactly the opposite.
