A recent NSF study found that few Americans know their science, but most believe science fiction is true:
A survey of 1,574 adults found that 60 percent agreed or strongly agreed that some people possess psychic powers or extrasensory perception, a premise that is generally discarded as unproven by most scientists.
But never fear, the results are improving:
In contrast to two years ago, when half of those surveyed were wrong, a majority, 54 percent, answered correctly when asked how long it takes the Earth to orbit the sun. (One year.)
I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of a better place to start an organization like Scientology than right here in pseudoscience central.
