I think the lister better distinguish between geocentrists and people who do not believe the Sun in the absolute center of the universe or solar system, since the Sun is neither the center of the universe nor the solar system.

During the election, I repeatedly heard people say that Obama was a) muslim and b) not born in the US. Invariably, the commenters were of the uneducated portion of our labor force. Again, I'm a registered republican, but ignorance is ignorance.

Re: America the Ignorant

Like Buster a lot of them really are "simple folks." Americans are by far the people with the most tools and information at their disposal yet they are the least informed. I wonder if it has always been like that? Perhaps America attracted the entrepreneurs and fortune seekers along with plain dumb folks who were ostracized in their motherland. I can see how you would want to leave if you're the town idiot.

Stupidity is a problem on both the left and right. More on the right obviously but still.

The sun is not the center of the solar system?

Well if you watch the news it seems that way. On a side note. Last week I watched a show about how the Rep. stole the 2000 and 2004 election in Ohio. It was so funny they had all these people saying how when they pushed a vote for Gore and Kerry the light for Bush would light up. They talked about how they would push the button over and over but still the Bush light came on. They had all these people have this problem but no one seemed to have recorded this happening. Come on you want me to believe that no one could whip out a phone or something and record this happening?

The other problem with Americans is that they are incapable of introspection and reflection of other possibilities.

Re: America the Ignorant

According to this, 25% of Americans believe in astrology. Wow. One in four people believe either a) the crap in the newspaper horoscopes or b) that the positions of other planets and stars have an influence over how your day goes.

I can't say I'm surprised. Remember, half of all people are more stupid than average.

... I follow astrology. I never read horoscopes in the newspaper but I like reading about star signs, traits and what not. I voted for Obama.

Shit, my life's a waste.

Technically, it is the focus of an ellipse.
