Continuity mistake: When Mulder and Scully are driving after their plane lands, we see at one point that Mulder has his left hand on the wheel and he is eating a sunflower seed with his right, yet when the shot changes he's driving with his right hand and eating with his left. (00:09:45)Chaz1003
Factual error: Mulder sees water going down the drain counterclockwise and says something is up since all water in the northern hemisphere drains clockwise. This is not true. Water can drain in both directions in both hemispheres. Things like convection currents, basin design, and residual swirl from filling the sink have a much greater influence. You would have to drain a small ocean to see the Coriolis effect, or use specially-designed test apparatus. See http://www.snopes.com/science/coriolis.htm and http://www.physics.ohio-state.edu/~dvandom/Edu/newcor.html (scroll down to *5.2. Water Going The Wrong Way Down The Sink* near the bottom of the page).
Continuity mistake: When Scully points out the location of the last time they saw Gibson Praise, she points to the (real) Palo Verde Nuclear Plant, which is west of Phoenix. In 'The Beginning' the plant shown was the (fictional) Rolling Hills Nuclear Plant, 60 miles east of Phoenix. (00:37:30)
Continuity mistake: When they find the felled ancient tree, the stump that Mulder clambers up onto to investigate the growth rings has a distinctive crack at the center and the growth rings are irregular in shape. However the stump that we get a close up of has no crack and regular circular rings. (00:18:20)
