  1. Stevem
    me too,
    12 correct & wondered about that carbon dioxide question, too

  2. 12/12 too… wouldn’t CO2 cause more plant growth?

  3. i got 10 out if 12 water being a recent discovery on mars is wrong nasa knew there was water on mars 30 years ago i have an old science mag. scientific american circa 1985 and they discuss the polar ice caps on mars and the presence of water. so how can that be recent? not to mention i used to read the martian times and water has been a known commodity for years.

  4. 11/ 12 I messed up on the electron/atom question. 🙁

  5. 12 out of 12. I wasn’t bothered by the carbon dioxide question since it is a greenhouse gas.

  6. Got eleven out of twelve.

  7. 11 out of 12 my fault I was going to fast and got cocky 🙁

  8. Glad to be a part of the 10% club. My teachers would be proud.

  9. Uh oh, saw “science” and knew I wouldn’t do so well…got 9 correct.

    But hey, I did get an A in chemistry at college 🙂

  10. I also got 12/12, as this is IMO a pretty simple quiz. Every HS student should have one year each of physics, chemistry, biology, ecology, and Earth Sciences, as a requirement for graduation. How else are they going to function in the Creation, which is the real world? Unfortunately TV, movies, and other “teaching aids” reinforce mindless consumerism, which is just fine by the MSM, TPTB, and all feral gubbmints.

    Dr Weaver’s “Ideas Have Consequences”, never out of print since 1947, is relentless in its dissection of what passes for ‘education’ in our era! Read it and be amazed as you wonder: why have his powerful, clear insights not been put into place? Why not, indeed….

  11. I’m a 12er.

  12. Apparently I’m not the brightest in this bunch…can I get a “blonde” pass on this one 🙂

  13. 10/12… (I also got hung up on the Mars and carbon question. 🙁

  14. that was fun-cept I missed one lol.
