American Ignorance

25% of American adults do not know the earth revolves around the sun. How could this be? It is taught starting in the second grade. It is taught in every video and documentary about astronomy. In history, the conflicts of Copernicus and Galileo and the church highlight it. What must happen is a preschooler is scolded for watching a science documentary by an ignorant church lady parent who associates all scientific knowledge with wickedness.
