"dass" is incorrect? Why?

Both "das" and "dass" exist, but they have different functions.

"Dass" is a conjunction - it introduces a subordinate conjunctional clause. E.g. He told me THAT (dass) his father was a teacher./ The idea THAT (dass) we will one day be able to live forever is scary.

For everything else (including relative clauses), use "das".
