Pretty much.

Polls are always coming out about the people that believe in demonic possession, think the Earth is bigger than the Sun, refuse to accept humans evolved from earlier species of animals, don't know what in the solar system revolves around what, etc. There's a *huge* overlap. We're mostly being horrified by the same batch of idiots, and the problem isn't a failing of schools. The problem is they're raised from an early age to never pay attention in science class lest they hear something that contradicts their beliefs.
