11. I wasn't talking about scientific knowledge, as in facts

 

I was talking about familiarity with science and the manner of thinking that goes with it. The vast majority of the population doesn't have it, and the interpretation of their responses to the statements posed depends heavily on that. What would people who haven't read Sagan make of "candle in the dark", as opposed to those who have?
