Exactly one dayone flipping dayafter the great man’s 450th birthday on Feb 15 2014 a study by the National Science Foundation (NSF) revealed that one in four Americans does not know that the Earth orbits the Sun That’s roughly 78 million people or six times greater than the entire population of Galileo’s native Italy in 1632the year he was sentenced to life under house arrest for advancing that heretical belief Yet somehow four centuries later later 25% of us still haven’t gotten the word If there’s any comfort at all to be taken from the studyand there is but only in that I’m-not-the-dumbest-one-in-the-class sort of wayit’s that the European Union fared even worse with 36% flunking the heliocentrism part of the science test It’s a reassuring truth of human history that wisdom is eternal Our greatest accomplishments and insights in art science technology philosophy theology medicine and government are timelessthings that once known can never truly be unknown But it’s an equally hard truth that stupid is forever too The flat-earthers have always been with us as have the believers in phrenology and alchemy and eugenics and sorcery and more recently and perniciously the climate change deniers and the vaccines-cause-autism ninnies Sometimes it’s greed and political calculation at work: If we call climate change a hoax we keep the riches flowing to the fossil fuel industry Sometimes it’s a search for answers (if a child develop autism someone must be to blame) coupled with a know-nothing carnival barker like Jenny McCarthy And sometimes it’s religion Galileo’s persecutors were the fathers of the Catholic Church holding fast to a Bible that described the Earth as fixed and unmovable and the sun as rising and setting and returning to its place each day The people who deny evolution today aren’t in the field collecting the bones and offering reasoned alternatives to what Darwin discovered They too know what they know because the Bible saysor seems to sayit’s true But to blame the believers is in its own way a blinkered view of things The hard fact is there are plenty of peoplethe majority of people in factwho can comfortably live in a world in which faith and science live side by side It was Carl Sagan himself who once wondered why a God who presides over a universe in which evolution unfolds in which physical sciences play out and in which great truths are slowly discovered by people with dawning wisdom isn’t somehow a subtler more nuanced and more appealing God The very same day the dispiriting NSF study was announced Rice University released a far more encouraging survey of 10000 scientists evangelical Protestants and average Americans According to the Rice results almost 50% of Evangelicals believe that science and religion can work together a figure that actually exceeds the 38% of all Americans who believe the same thing As for all those non-spiritual scientists Eighteen percent of them attend weekly religious services only slightly less than the 20% of average Americans who are also regular worshippers And 15% think of themselves as “very religious” compared to 19% of everyone else Scientists who also happen to be Evangelicals actually practice their religion more than Evangelical non-scientists Yes there are some findings in the survey likely to give science types heartburn: 60% of Evangelicals believe that scientists should be willing to consider miracles as possible explanations for the phenomena they study as do 38% of all Americans But on the whole the warring camps we hear so much about may be smaller and friendlier than we’ve come to believe And to the extent that a battle does exist it’s mostly being fought out at the extremes: the finger-in-the-eye atheists like Bill Maher who regard believers with a kind of pitying disdain and don’t care who knows it; the religious fundamentalists who defy inquisitiveness defy reason demanding a literal interpretation of Scripture that includes a great flood and a 6000 year old world and a planet full of fossils and billions-year-old rocks that are put there merely to test our faith In fairness there is not a complete equivalency here The likes of Maher may be tiresome but they make a point: The world is 45 billion years old Full stop The Earth does revolve around the Sunperiod On these matters the modern day fundamentalists arehow best to put thiswrong When the Catholic Church as long ago as 1758 lifted its ban on teaching the sun-centered solar system and in 1992 formally acknowledged error in its treatment of Galileo the very guardians of Scripture themselves were acknowledging that simply because a verse is written in a book does not make it so To insist otherwise is to fight a rearguard action one that holds entire societies back Science has been with us since the beginning of time Faith has been with us since we opened our eyes and began wondering what all that science and everything else around us means By now many eons on we ought to have figured out a way to marry the two Perhaps in another 450 years we will Write to Jeffrey Kluger at [email protected] 2015.
