One-Third of Millennials Don’t Know the Earth Is Round

Just how unforgivably has government-run education been letting down youth? One indication is the percentage of 18- to 24-year olds who don’t know the Earth is round:

YouGov, a British market research firm, polled 8,215 adults in the United States to find out if they ever believed in the “flat Earth” movement. Only 66 percent of young millennials answered that they “always believe the world is round.” …

Another nine percent […] of young adults said they thought the planet was spherical but had doubts about it. In a disturbing display of indecision, 16 percent of millennials said they weren’t sure what the shape of the planet was.

On the positive side, they know how to recycle, that economic freedom makes it be too hot out for the sacred man-eating polar bears, and that America is racist.

It is revealing that the younger the age group, the more likely people are to be unaware that the world is round, falling from a peak of 94% for those 55 and over. This presumably reflects the dumbing down of society by failed public schools and the ever more idiotic media.

Following this trajectory, Generation Tide Pod must be even more likely not to know that the Earth is a sphere. Yet these are the uninformed children who — when they aren’t too busy snorting condoms up their noses — are presented by the media as the voices of wisdom who know better than the Founding Fathers which inalienable rights ought to be respected by the government.
