    Default No way! This CAN'T be right...

    25% of Americans don't know the earth revolves around the sun. How is this possible??

    "..the National Science Foundation (NSF) delivered news of a pretty shocking poll result: around one in four Americans (yes, that's 25 percent) are unaware that the Earth orbits the sun. Let’s repeat that: One in four Americans — that represents one quarter of the population — when asked probably the most basic question in science (except, perhaps, “Is the Earth flat?” Hint: No.), got the answer incorrect."

    The majority of people on this board don't see the uneducated masses that our inner cities are producing.

    I have a difficult time believing in many poll numbers. Until everyone is asked to participate, the numbers are not entirely accurate.

    But, having said that, I'm not entirely shocked that it's 25%. I would've guessed 20%.

    But, then again, maybe that's what you get living in a Kardashian culture.

    Uneducated masses. I work with them and talk to them. Most are very nice people but its amazing how little they know or care to know about anything. Especially politics and science.

    Not shocked. I would have guessed around 15%.

    I've always believed three of the greatest traits for learning are awareness, observation, and curiosity. People who do not possess these traits are doomed for ignorance.

    well, Sherrie Shepard got a national talk show and she didn't know the world is round (doesn't believe in evolution either) I can get someone not believing in evolution if they have something that they are using as their basis of belief, but not knowing that the earth is round is just plain, astounding, inexcusable, ignorance

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Come on Daisy, you should know by now that being on TV does not mean you have a brain. Just look at anything that MTV puts out.

    Those ladies make my brain hurt. Thank God I will be either powder dust or buried in the "flat" earth in 40 odd years, maybe sooner, who knows. I'm not sure how much more of that type of stupidity I can take.

    A recent survey or North American males found 42% were overweight, 34% were critically obese and 8% ate the survey.

    Whenever I read statistical reports, I try to imagine my unfortunate contemporary, the Average Person, who, according to these reports, has 0.66 children, 0.032 cars, and 0.046 TVs.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    Part of me wonders how many of these people were called during dinner or after a shitty day and decided to fuck with the survey taker. I also wonder how many people are just confused by the question and, rather than admit they aren't sure about the question, just take a random guess.

    Another part of that article says that the majority of Americans think astrology is a science. I would chalk that up to a sizeable portion of the country not realizing the difference between astrology and astronomy. Plus their horoscope is on the Yahoo! homepage...that can't be wrong, can it?!
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
