I hope so. But I’m not as good as I hoped. Diane G. called my attention to a scientific literacy test at, of all places, the Christian Science Monitor (no questions about disease are asked, of course!).
I could beef that there are too many physics and chemistry questions, but that’s because I scored a lousy 82% (I got 41 of the 50 questions—the same score that Diane got.) Given that the average for all takers was 66%, and I’m a scientist, for crying out loud, I feel like a chump. But I didn’t miss any biology questions.
Well, take it and see how you do. It’ll take about 10 minutes. Put your scores below if you’re either proud or brave enough.
