    The Science Quiz

    The questions are so easy and I'm really not a science guy.

    Its amazing that such a small percentage of the population can answer all these questions correctly.

    Re: The Science Quiz

    This doesn't surprise me, unfortunately.

    I could be wrong on the exact figure, but I recently heard that around 10% of Americans believe that our Sun and planets revolve around the Earth.

    Re: The Science Quiz

    Alright!!!!! Got all 12 right. Probably a good thing since I'm going to be an elementary teacher with a science specialization.

    Re: The Science Quiz

    all 12 correct, sad that is a vast minority.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    12/12. Those were exceptionally easy. Makes you wonder about a lot of the population.

    Pretty scary that there are people who got less than 50% of those questions right, much less the people who only got 1 or 2 right. Those questions were stupid easy.

    Do "most scientists" really believe carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is causing an increase in temperatures?
