    | bit more than half (54%) of Americans know that the earth goes
    | around the sun once a year & fewer than that (48%) know that humans
    | & dinosaurs weren't contemporaries (which of course is closely
    | related to your point). Significant numbers believe in astrology &
    | think that genes are found only in genetically modified organisms.

    Is this study published on the web somewhere?
