Embarrassingly Stupid Americans -- One in Five Believes Sun Revolves Around Earth.


The title of this article, that an embarrassingly high number of Americans believe that the sun revolves around the Earth, is only one point argued by the Washington Post’s Susan Jacoby, in her attempt to prove that Americans are in serious intellectual trouble, facing a virulent mixture of anti-intellectualism, anti-rationalism and low expectations.

Well if it is what you are told or should I say what you aren't told than you can't help it. A lot of subjects don't seem to matter on schools and as long as you get to be a productive member of the society nobody really cares what you learn. Of course I don't agree to that system, but I wouldn't really know a solution to it too. To many people are more than happy to stay in their comfortzones and don't wish to know more.
