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.

Are you sure those statistics are reliable? It just sounds too unbelievable.

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.
