One in four Americans 'do not know the Earth circles the Sun'

One in four Americans are completely unfamiliar with Nicolaus Copernicus's 1543 theory that the Earth circles the Sun, according to a study by the National Science Foundation.

The survey, released on Friday at an annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, asked 2,200 people nine factual questions about physical and biological science, with the average score being just 5.8 correct answers.

Re: the article: A lot depends on what passes for knowledge. The writer states:

"Fewer than half of the respondents - 48 per cent - are aware that humans evolved from earlier species of animals"

Now there's an intelligent guy for you. If I were to post a response to his completely unprovable declaration, (It's hard to prove the untrue to be true) in a similarly incredulous and pointed manner, I might ask if all Brits were as uninformed as he is. But that would be wrong. Just because he believes in fairy tales, doesn't mean it should be assumed all Brits do.

From a related article titled "Americans surveyed: misunderstood, misrepresented or ignorant?":

"In the same group, two thirds of the respondents estimated the population of the US at between 750 million and two billion (actual figure: 298 million)."

Not true either, (actual figure more like 316 million.) We won't accuse the Brit guy of being misunderstood, misrepresented, or ignorant. But it does seem you should know what you're talking about if you're going to make a case about the ignorance of others.

There is nothing unbiblical about Pentecostalism as Pentecostal Churches preach the biblical doctrine of salvation that salvation comes only through embracing Jesus as ones Savior by trusting in Him alone for salvation. My Nephew and Niece In-Law and their family who reside in Tulare, California are Pentecostals who are Born Again, trust in Jesus alone for salvation and attend First Church of God of Tulare, California.

Since there are many false christs and false prophets, your response does not convince me that you know the gospel. It it that which distinguishes the true Christ. See 1 Cor. 15

Most people simply don't care about such matters! No, sex sports and vanity are far worthy of their limited attention span. After all life is all about pleasure and good feelings.

Reporters Without Borders reports the 2014 World Press Freedom Index, showing US in 46th place in the world. Just next to Haiti. Problem is, people are not informed, and with the strongest mil in world history, it is to the advantage of those who create markets to keep them that way. for most evangelicals, this is not a problem, as popular evangelical pastors made it clear on Larry King Live years ago, to the highest powers, we are to give our absolute trust. Journalism and free exchange of ideas are simply incompatible with modern evangelists. We'll talk theology all day, but woe to those who apply it to real life.

Get real, you cannot faithfully study scripture, and play satanic video games at the sametime, that is simply ridiculous. This explains why your comments are so inflammatory, and devoid of spiritual discernment (at least partially explains it anyway, Im sure there are other factors involved).

Re: Why Are British/UK People so Dumb?
Was not so long ago that a third of the world map was red, which meant the UK ruled it.

When was the last time the USA managed that then..

Lets see.................. That would be never then...

let me see ... that would have been easy ... you overtook cavemen with bearskins and stone knives and you did it brutally ... you can't take over now because you lack the intellect to overtake a modern society ...
that's why soon you will obey sharia law ... lolz

Statisticians may have a pedantic answer for that, but I still don't know why we should believe them. Plus, in this case we have no information regarding the survey's methodology; absent that, it's not worth repeating.
For all we know, some respondents may have been putting them on, as a lark, for asking questions like that which insult their intelligence.
Pedantic? No

The information age in regard to people's knowledge is like lipstick on a Pig,the overwhelming majority of internet usage is Porn first,gaming and entertainment,social media,which is just a high tech way to exchange and share ignorance and at the very bottom we have educational usage.
I suspect when the final analysis is done the information age just made us stupid slaves.
Gaming is what i do when i listen to scripture ... over 30 mmorpg's and 9 years of listening whilst i slay dragons ... God given discernment can be used ANYWHERE and EVERYWHERE. you do not need to hole up like a monk ... the selfish do this thinking they do God's work ...

What is your problem anyway? You don't believe that my Pentecostal Nephew and Niece In-Law and their family are saved eventhough they state that they are Born Again and trust in Jesus alone for salvation? Look up the website for First Church of God of Tulare, California where my Nephew and Niece In-Law and their family attend and in the Statement of Faith it states that First Church of God of Tulare, California believes that salvation comes only through embracing Jesus as ones Savior by trusting in Him alone for salvation.

Yet another British story about Those Stupid Americans. Maybe it helps them feel better about themselves.

Anyhow, just how ‚Äúscientific‚ÄĚ is this survey?
1) AAAS has an agenda which is reinforced by it, so it's liable to Conflict of Interest;
2) The sample size is .0007% of the U.S. population (2200/313e6*100). How's this for Hasty Generalization?
