Today’s Quote: American Scientific Illiteracy

“Only 53% of adults know how long it takes for the Earth to revolve around the Sun. Only 59% of adults know that the earliest humans and dinosaurs did not live at the same time. Only 47% of adults can roughly approximate the percent of the Earth’s surface that is covered with water. Only 21% of adults answered all three questions correctly.”
— From a survey commissioned by the California Academy of Sciences in Feb. 2009.

The first two were easy, approximately 365 days and no, humans and dinosaurs did not co-exist, but on the water question, I guessed 3/5’s of the Earth was covered in water; the true amount is about 75 percent.

What’s scary is that 47% of American adults don’t know what constitutes a year, and 41% think Fred Flintstone is based on reality – and these people are allowed to vote.
