facts facts facts

As far as "widely accepted" and "a healthy dose of common sense" goes, remember that The United States is 49th in the world in literacy (the New York Times, Dec. 12, 2004), 28th out of 40 countries in mathematical literacy (NYT, Dec. 12, 2004), 20 % of Americans think the sun orbits the earth, and 17 % believe the earth revolves around the sun once a day (The Week, Jan. 7, 2005).

Regardless, they use emotional words without facts at all; not scientific analysis.
