You can't call it a fact unless it's true, or you're an orange orangutan.

The issue is that, as you use the present tense, it depends upon when you evaluate the phrase.

Well the start of the 21st century was in January 1st 2001 so I guess it's true until January 1st 2019, assuming an adult is someone 18 or older.

Actually it started on 2001, and the 20th century started on 1901.
