  • Nothing is really pushing it. I think everyone knows some aspect of those. Most haven't has training or education,but you pick stuff up as you go.

  • Nothing? No. But an awful lot of people know very little about either of these subjects.

  • That's exactly why the art & music programs at the schools are important and the funds for them shouldn't be cut. Kids should have Art & Music just like all the other classes that are mandatory that they take and the cirriculum should expand on the information that is taught about them. I bet kids would be fascinated by it all if more was done to give them a modern day version.

  • I wouldn't say they know nothing but often what they do know is limited and they often hold a misunderstanding of what is really being said and what they think is being said. For example let's take Science. How many people try to combine Evolution and The Big Bang which are two completely separate scientific theories.

  • Unfortunately, I would have to agree with this... Most people I know have never had a reason to learn this stuff, so they don't. For me, I can't imagine not seeking out this education for myself of my kids, but I'm far from normal!

  • It's a matter of degrees for everyone, the more interest someone has in a topic the more they tend to learn about it.  For me it was important to teach my kids about a lot of different things so we've read lots of science, art, and history books together.

  • It depends on a person's interests. I'm very interested in science, so I research and read about it, I'm not really that interested in the arts, so I would say I'm ignorant on that topic. Nothing wrong with it, I can't feel passionate and be knowledgeable about everything. No one can.

  • No most people do know a little of every thing, and are just stronger in some areas.
