In news just in, research reveals Aussies are becoming more ignorant of basic science facts.
?39% know that 70% of the Earth?s surface is under water ?59% of all respondents know the Earth takes one year to orbit the sun ?70% know that evolution is currently occurring ?73% know people are influencing the evolution of other species ?73% know that the earliest humans did not live at the same time as dinosaurs ?79% say science education is very important or absolutely essential to the economy
I wonder if more than 59 percent of Americans know it takes a year for the Earth to orbit the sun?
Is it true? Is Google replacing the need to know stuff?
