A simple Quiz for you

Here is a question of the French's version of "Who wants to be a Millionaire" (translation according to The Speculist by Phil Bowermaster)
Which object obits the Earth?
A. the Moon
B. the Sun
C. Mars
D. Venus

Can you answer this?

The following is the show captured on youTube:

My real question to ponder: Why over half of French think that the Sun orbits the Earth?

Are you one of them? If yes, where did you learn that the Sun revolves the Earth?

Our progress is driven by technology which is driven by science which is driven by evidence-based investigation.

In a previous post, I suggested the following as subjects students must learn today for tomorrow:
Languages (4+1)
Communication skill
Self Entertaining Development
Evidence-based data-based learning
Authentic learning

Do you agree? Should I move "Evidence-based data-based learning" to the very top?

BTW, Moon revolves around the Earth.
