Quote from: Alissa de Carbonnel, Reuters
Third of Russians think sun spins round Earth?

Does the sun revolve around the Earth? One in every three Russians thinks so, a spokeswoman for state pollster VsTIOM said on Friday.

In a survey released this week, 32 percent of Russians believed the Earth was the center of the Solar system; 55 percent that all radioactivity is man-made; and 29 percent that the first humans lived when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth.

From the polls I've seen, about 20% of Americans believe that the sun revolves around the earth. On the other hand, about 45% of Americans believe that humans and dinsaurs coexisted. Doesn't bode well for either country.

Shh. The American Catacombs are a secret. The Masons have been searching for them for centuries.

I don't think this is "resisting modernism" so much as it is resisting good science and proven fact.

Gallup are usually very trustworthy, so I guess it must be true.

How sad.

I think the saddest thing is that about 99% of people think that the truth about the cosmos is best explored using telescopes. I could be wrong though, I didn't conduct a scientific poll.

Right, back to our regular programming of laughing at those dumb geocentrists.
