Not So Sunny News



This was mindboggling to me:

One In Four Americans 'Do Not Know The Earth Circles The Sun'

I grant that some of these questions may have been theoretical and I can see some equivocation here and there, but IT IS A FACT that the earth orbits the sun and everyone on this planet should know that.

This is just unbelievable.

And we have such great public schools that are making sure our kids know this. NOT!

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Cube - That is amazing. Not that the earth circles the sun but that so many people don't know it.

Sandee: It's not surprising. We've been "educating" legions of liberal morons for decades.

Sue Hanes: I know. It drives me crazy to think about the lack of science training in this country.

Another sorry commentary on our educational system! I learned that the earth orbited the sun when I was in 1st grade.

Also, don't people watch those Jimmy Dean Sandwich commercials, the one showing the planets orbiting the sun?

Always On Watch: I remember the evening when I explained to my little daughter that stars were suns for other solar systems... the look on her face when that realization hit her was priceless.

I don't think she ever looked at the night sky the same way.

I found this appalling too. I'd better quit saying the sun is returning to earth. It might reinforce those with low information.
