New Zealand in good company. Pity about the USA

Credit: Calamities of nature

What a glaring anomaly – the USA which on many things is a world leader – so out of step with an important aspect of human knowledge.

And perhaps New Zealand is not so bad after all. The CIA World fact Book (2008) gives our Gross Domestic Product per capita as about $27,200. Its probably a little higher now but surveys indicate our acceptance of evolutionary science as high as 80%

Not bad – we’re up there with the northern Europeans.

  1. No one on the “crock” site where you got the graph seemed to get Maurizio’s point.

  2. NZ has its own share of irrationalities without taking on more from the US. Australia appears keen though.
