Science Quiz anyone?

The Pew Research Center has a nice online science quiz on their website to help illustrate the level of science understanding among the general public. While fun, it is a little depressing... click here and take the quiz, and you'll see what I mean.



AFTER you take the quiz, share the link with some friends then check out the full report.

I'd like to hear more about the 13% of scientists that don't think organisms evolve via natural processes.

Yeah, I was thinking that computer scientists and chemical engineers count as "scientists" in such polls?

I think I would chalk part of that to inorganic chemists as well. Maybe some physists? Some of the most closed minded people I have met have been inorganic chemists. One of my chem professors was actually witnessed as saying that women don't do well in the 'hard sciences' (p chem, engineering, physics). And this was at a private liberal arts college!
