Two of the other three just don't care either way...shush American Idol is on!!!

A couple thousand people hardly speaks for the entire population.

No but they do speak for some of the population and each of them are part of the populace.

Think about it; America is actually smart enough to take over the world!

Yeah, blindly following orders from the international elite system is "taking over the world".

I hope they are not all as "smart" as you are and actually believe that they have taken over the world.

As i said sampling is science stop using straw man on this.

First you say its trash then you say its more

Go home bro you are drunk

I didn't get this comment the first time I read it. If it's more, than it's not exact is it? I think that was the point I was making.

Sorry for pooping on your thread. Every time I see a politically motivated survey I have flashbacks to grade school when they gave us questionnaires on drug use. Me and all my friends checked off "heavy use" for each illicit narcotic. And then Reagan started his war… Who thought a bunch of kids could have caused such a mess?

Or all the times I've hung up on survey people on the phone.

Sorta proof that the 3 in 4 are wrong.
Earth doesn't rotate around the sun link.

Since the barycenter of the Sun-Earth system is located beneath the surface of the Sun, the Earth does indeed revolve around the Sun, while rotating on its own axis.

Believe what you want. Supposed that same logic can prove the earth is flat.

Science is science...

posted on Feb, 15 2014 @ 07:28 AM

Also using your logic, the sun rotates around itself on its own axis ...therefore it too orbits the sun?

Mayonnaise doesn't come from the mayo plant?

Come off it, next you'll be telling me spaghetti doesn't come from a spaghetti tree.

Nice try.

Still earth is not the center of the solar system

The Earth is flat, only 5,000 years old and the moon is made of cheese*

Actually, it would have been 4 in 4. It wasn't a true or false question:

Question: 134
Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth?
l> Earth goes around Sun
2> Sun goes around Earth

Survey questions.

Dear god I don't know who in their right mind would sit through a survey that long and agonizing.

2000 (independent national sample): n= 15,955 8th graders; ± 2.2% (one question used)

I thought the earth orbited the sun? has 'orbited' been banned by the spelling nazis? I do online surveys for some thing to do, and some of the questions defy logic, and get asked again further on in the survey, but worded slightly differently.
Some questions are worded so that you have to answer the way they want, not your own opinion on the question, so I just abandon the survey and lodge a complaint.

Blame the failing city schools and complete apathy on the part of certain populations of kids who go.
I didn't see a break down, but I'd bet that the suburbs mostly know better than this.

I'm sorry,

Which button combo covers that?

*heavy sigh* This actually doesn't surprise me, that people think the sun goes 'round the globe rather than the opposite. Not all Americans are this effing stoopid, but enough of them are to make you worry about our country's future (Idiocracy, full steam ahead!)
I've met people who didn't know where canned veggies really came from. These morons thought there were people in the stock room shoving them in the cans, making them out of, "I dunno, flour & dye I think." It never occurred to them that it's grown, harvested, and packed, then shipped to the stores. I come from a farming family, when my parents had their farm, this "made in the stock room" mentality from grown ADULTS wasn't all that rare. It's a minority of people, but my god, they're out there propagating the species...

LOL, that was the question asked! People are dumb.

But to further promote my now pointless argument. Since reading facts about our system is difficult, I present moving pictures:

Oh come on you people focus too much in facts, does the sun rotates or not, if its technically correct or not, its not education its society its not society is religion...

I just want to hear crazy talk about the government dumbing down america to impose the NWO
