We haven’t always known that the Earth is not the centre of the universe, that it is not flat but spherical (although not perfectly) and that it hangs on nothing in space. Our understanding had to be adjusted in the light of new evidence.
We haven’t always known the existence of bacterial life. With the advent of the microscope, our understanding of life deepened and our medical practices improved.
Yes, you might say, but that was centuries ago. Surely our knowledge doesn’t make such jumps nowadays.
