1 in 5 Americans believe Sun revolves around the Earth
A light bulb appears over my head.
I finally get it.
For the democratic process to run properly it necessitates the voter to have some knowledge of what he is voting on. For it to work properly it requires voters to cast their votes based on an educated opinion.
If you are going to vote on something like stem cell research you should at least know what it is, correct?
Sadly, that isn’t how many American vote, as is obvious when during an election year people are talking about whether or not someone “looks presidential” and whether the person looks “likeable”.
Well the question is, how can Americans vote on such things as global warming, stem cell research, cloning and what have you when basic scientific fundamental concepts fly right over our heads.

Isn't saying Earth revolves around the Sun equivalent to saying the Sun revolves around the Earth?

very true, in Germany it is teached at schools that main part of democracy is making the people "mündig" (= mouthy hehe), that is, giving them the education to express a rational opinion.

Obama Pledge

I pledge allegiance to the unions
And to civil unrest in America
And to the Republic
I plan to destroy
Two Nations
Under funded
Divided
With misery and poverty for all

lol. saying you are a "strict <insert belief system or whatever here>" is like saying "My mind is completely closed to some ideas but not others".

In short: "I am closed minded."

The same can be said for you.
Actually what was ment was that from my investigation into both sides of the issue of creation or darwinian evolution, I find the global flood model to be the only scientific finding.

The sun does go around the earth but at so slow a rate that it takes 100's or 1000's of years. As the earth takes only one year to go around the sun that is what it is called then.
See they both go around each other. The sun is not at a fixed point, as it moves, we as earth move with it as we go around the sun. All the plants move with the sun as it moves in space.

Yes, this is true! Ask any physicist... :)

But I don't think the people saying the sun revolves around the Earth had this factoid in mind...
All power is largely an illusion.

We can't all have 3 digit IQ's.

Interestingly, 1 in 5 Americans were raised in countries that think the Sun revolves around the Earth.
