Of course we know the Earth revolves around the Sun. But in that survey many of us misunderstood the question. It was put to us "What does the Earth revolve around?" And we answered "America."

You had me stumped there for a few minutes. But then I googled up the answer. That was a close one.

Gravity is just a theory. Our schools need to teach the controversy.

Its fairly easy to observe its effects though.

I think considering people haven't grasped the rudimentary principles of Geography (eg. Switzerland is Sweden), religion (eg. Israel aren't all Muslim) and History (The truth about the American war of independence, Vietnam, Peal Harbour etc.) etc., it might be prudent to start with the basics?.

Pishaw, that's just micro-gravity. Everyone believes in that.

On the other had, its fairly difficult to 'disprove' it existence. Gravity being a force (and a relatively abundant one at that), its just a matter of time before we find the science (quarks/gluons etc.) to prove its existence.
We live in an exciting time, and we're (the human race - I cant take any credit for it) getting closer everyday.

If gravity is real, then why doesn't the moon fall into the Earth? Tides come in, tides go out, you can't explain that. When are gravitationists going to give up their fantasies?

What "we" are you talking about? Real Americans know it's the universe that revolves around America! Laughing
