"One adult American in five thinks the Sun revolves around the Earth..."

That's one of the most worrying things I've ever heard in my life.

ok, *that* would surely be a reasonable basis to disenfranchise someone from voting?

I'd go so far as to suggest it's grounds for dsenfranchising from *breathing*!

Well the sun rises in the east, moves overhead to the west where it sets.
This repeats itself everyday, although sometimes when it's clouded i'm not sure.
Assuming this is the same sun everytime, I suppose it moves underneath the earth back to the east at night to make a full circle.
Things that make circles are known to "revolve". The sun revolves around the earth. Q.E.D.
