It could be a matter of their educational system, though. I'm not familiar what they teach in their schools or how widespread religious schools are, but it could be that's contributing to the low ranking?

ALL ideas must be given equal weight; not just ideas supported by facts and evidence.
That sounds more like Derrida, the believers just claim that their right and science is wrong.

I submit the last five posts in this thread as further evidence that in a-merica, we believe in devolution (or is it de-evolution?)

Feor me, evolution's a given. It's the theories on the Universe I'm curious about...currently, I'm diggin' the string theories...hmmmn, but which one?

If it wasn't for the fact that we captured the aliens first, we'd be way behind in technology too!
