It was Pliny the Elder who first informed the world that ostriches stick their heads in the sand to hide. It was nonsense in A.D. 50 when Pliny lived, and it is still nonsense today. But the misinformation has continued to resurface throughout every century despite countless debunking. You evidently just can't kill an attractive falsehood that is touted as "truth". Clear parallel here over the obvious misinformation that is "screamed" by the only sect over and over and over, even though it is patently false. (Think Ps 12 as an example) It was nonsense in A.D. 1611 and it's still nonsense today.
