    not sure how accurate this survey, or 'survey' is, but if it is accurate, its interesting how the world learns different things in life:
    Third of Russians think sun revolves around earth, poll finds | News.com.au


    i mean, if they believe that the world is the center of the solar system, is that to say that their education is different than the west? or that they forgot like we forget how to do simple math after 3 years of graduation...

    People are fucking stupid.
    More than a third of the US believe our president Is an "Evil, scary Muslim born in africa"
    Hell, There are still people out there who think 9/11 was an inside job, who think man never landed on the moon. The list goes on.
    People are fucking stupid.

    Most likely means that any survey is only as good at showing what the participants think or know. In this case, I'd be wondering just how many Russians they actually interviewed, where they were from and what education level they'd received.

    As I'm sure other posters will point out, you could go to certain areas of certain states here in the US and interview the local yokels and gosh darn it some of them probably can't even identify Canada on a map. Or who the current US president is in a line-up, etc...

    Point being, I wouldn't pay the survey (or almost *any* survey) much mind. :yesway:

    They probably interviewed drunks exclusively.

    Joke #1: Well 100% of Russians believe in Vodka, so that may explain it.

    Joke #2: In Soviet Russia, sun revolves around earth!!

    Relatively speaking, you could say that yes, the sun does revolve around the earth.

    i'm sure there are people who believe in those points strongly enough to raise points that 'terrorist-attacked-9/11' supporters and 'man-didn't-land-on-moon-when-said' supports that you wont be able to retaliate against.

    nothing is ever so absolute. my point, the whole 'absolute truth' doesn't exist.

    74.56% of statistics are made up, but that doesn't change the fact that 90% of people on earth are dumb-as-shit morons.

    However, Russia in recent times is pretty fucking horrendous. The amount of violence, racism, idiocy there is appalling.

    Around 20% of Americans believe in UFOs.

    Mass stupidity is hardly new.

    How could you not believe in UFOs... All it has to do is be flying, unknown, and an object.
