For Science!

DrB-

The “Christian Science Monitor” has a pretty decent science literacy quiz. 50 questions, each gives a bit of context after you answer, such as this on the age of the earth:

In the 17th century, an Anglican archbishop in Ireland named James Ussher added up the reigns of the kings and lifespans of the Biblical kings and patriarchs and concluded that the world came into existence on Sunday, October 23, 4004 BC. Science has yet to determine the exact date of the formation of our planet, but we can safely conclude that Rev. Ussher got the year wrong.

Fun extra fact: Ussher “calculated” that date, specifically at 9 in the morning. He did not specify what time zone.

Take it here, post your score and what you missed in the comments!
