New Findings! The Sun Revolves around the Earth . . .

(Parenthetically speaking: Human beings as we know them today maybe wired to their cells but their batteries are dead).

1 In 4 Americans Thinks The Sun Goes Around The Earth, Survey Says

A quarter of Americans surveyed could not correctly answer that the Earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around, (100% of those surveyed read the National Inquirer for  science information) according to a report out Friday from the National Science Foundation.”

“The survey of 2,200 people in the United States was conducted by the NSF in 2012 and released on Friday at an annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago.”

“To the question “Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth,” 26 percent of those surveyed answered incorrectly.” (ah, this explains why men don’t like to ask for directions when they are lost)

“In the same survey, just 39 percent answered correctly (true) that “The universe began with a huge explosion” and only 48 percent said “Human beings, as we know them today, developed from earlier species of animals”.  (Human beings as we know them today will end with a huge implosion)

Just over half understood that antibiotics are not effective against viruses. (The 50% that didn’t understand thought Anti Biotics was a rock band)

If you want to see how American’s understand fared against the China and Europe you’ll have to read the rest of the article because I’ve just lost my faith in human beings as we know them today and I’ve got to go find it .

  1. Hmmmm, about 35% of the comments under the NPR article (“…they don’t teach astrology anymore…” – REALLY!) validate the results of the study. We truly are becoming an undereducated country – any episode of Jay Leno’s “Jaywalking” underscores the fact.
