south korea education rank

And who is #1 in dumping Darwinism from the educational system? From the pages of the prestigious scientific journal Nature it would seem it is also South Korea.

Another perspective on this issue from Carl Zimmer's blog The Loom: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/loom/2012/06/11/science-literacy-a-worldwide-look/ Jerad
These are just kids and only represents the studiousness , for whatever reason, that is part of their circles. Its unrelated to ability in these subjects beyond mere learning things. The proof is in the capability of a nation as a whole to accomplish and advance matters using these subjects. Remember also its about identities and identity in america interferes with results and any interpretation of educational influence on results. South Koreans immigrate to America and nobody immigrates to S Korea. creationism must be careful of using these things as if it went against us they would have the good point we are now making relative to influence of creationism. Kids don't matter. Robert Byers

Iceland is ranked #1 in belief in evolution according to: http://www.data360.org/dsg.aspx?Data_Set_Group_Id=507 It is ranked #23 in science education. The US is ranked almost at the bottom in belief in evoution but is ranked #17 in science, higher than Iceland. Thus it is hard to make a case that belief in evolutionism translates into science literacy. scordova
