American idiots

A new survey from the National Science Foundation confirms that one out of every four Americans believes the sun circles the earth. And more than half don’t know that humans evolved from lower species.

It’s facepalm time.

The survey included more than 2,200 people in the United States and was conducted by the National Science Foundation.

Nine questions about physical and biological science were on the quiz, and the average score — 6.5 correct — was barely a passing grade.
