Mensagem:  Verdade, eles sao igual.

They mean exactly the same thing, both are correct.

It is true, questions always use "did".

Also, "did" is used in statements for emphasis:

"It did happen that way!" or "yes, it did happen yesterday"

A negative statement without "did":

"It happened not to be raining that day"
