Lost in Space

One Hot Topic

Well, I wouldn’t call this “Good News” but it seems to be evidence of the Gospel of America:

Americans think the sun goes around the earth (NPR)

Highlights (sic):

A quarter of Americans surveyed could not correctly answer that the Earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around, 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.

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.”

Just over half understood that antibiotics are not effective against viruses.

Are these the same people who say America (and Their Faith) is “exceptional”?

Are these the same ones who say Humans can’t be the cause of a Warming Earth (we’re too exceptional)?

Does everything revolve around US?

Maybe we need a little Light on the subject! (could someone turn off that bright light in the sky. . .and the one in my mind!)
