| ... It should be seen as part of the general climate of scientific
| illiteracy - as shown, e.g. in a recent NSF study. E.g., only a
| 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?
