One of the chicks on "The View", who many many women rely on for their updates to current events.....

The World is Flat.

And 1 in 6 in America think the sun revolves around the Earth.

Kid,
Who on The View said that the earth is flat?

They make perfect sense to me.

Maybe kid should reference the article:

"
Generally, U.S. residents showed a knowledge of science comparable to those of other countries with high levels of education, including Japan, the European Union and South Korea, the NSF said. In fact, they did better than EU residents on the question about whether Earth moves around the sun.

The most recent survey of more than 2,200 people was conducted in 2012 and just released.

On two controversial questions, whether the universe began with a large explosion and whether humans are descended from other species, fewer than half in the United States said those are true.

The Atlantic said those percentages go up by a significant amount when the questions are rephrased to ask if the big-bang theory and evolution are scientifically accepted.

No other polling data or methodology details were reported."
