Pride is good for a country, but claiming that a countryman invented another person’s product is a bad thing to do. Myths likes this thrive on people who are unaware, and they have gained notoriety after the birth of the internet and cellular phones. Spreading them has become easy, and many school books actually CREDIT these people as the true inventors.
Doesn’t that seem like a slap to the face of the real inventors? To show you some examples, here are some “supposed” inventors.
- Roberto Del Rosario, the “inventor” of the karaoke.
- Armando Lite, inventor of the “Armalite” or M16.
- Eduardo San Juan, inventor of the Moon Buggy.
In truth, the three inventors are not real. The M16 was not named after Armando Lite, and the gun is not called “Armalite.” Armalite is actually ArmaLite, a small arms company. It is not an abbreviation for Armando Lite.
The Karaoke was created by Daisuke Inoue, a Japanese man who developed it for his band. He is considered to be a national inventor in Japan, and he is recognized by many to be the true inventor of the Karaoke.
Eduardo San Juan, who was referenced in my English book once, is not the inventor of the moon buggy. However, I will say this: There is too many websites saying he did or did not. However, there are documents of Eduardo passing on designs and schematics. Sadly, our friend did not manage to get his work accepted as the final design.
So why do these myths propagate here? Maybe because we love our country so much that we often believe that our countrymen are superheroes. I’m not saying it’s bad, but we really should think before we act. Do any of you know Fe Del Mundo?
Fe Del Mundo is a woman we should be proud of. She designed an incubator made of bamboo, and she was able to get into Harvard BEFORE they admitted women. I believe instead of spreading myths, we should spread what is already true.
It’s not wrong to be proud of your country, but we shouldn’t bask in other people’s glory. Rather than making myths, or stealing people’s thunder, we should instead be happy over other people’s inventions and the inventions that have actually been verified.Why? Because it’s better to worship a man who is real, than a superhero that’s fake.
