ADL condemns this documentary

by pesky

New York, NY, August 22, 2006 � The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today blasted a television documentary produced by Christian broadcaster Dr. D. James Kennedy's Coral Ridge Ministries that attempts to link Charles Darwin's theory of evolution to Adolf Hitler and the atrocities of the Holocaust. ADL also denounced Coral Ridge Ministries for misleading Dr. Francis Collins, the director of the National Human Genome Research Institute for the NIH, and wrongfully using him as part of its twisted documentary, "Darwin's Deadly Legacy."
After being contacted by the ADL about his name being used to promote Kennedy's project, Dr

Can you find the answers the this quiz (mostly basic historic, literary, and scientific trivia)?

A recent survey said that most teenagers living in the US or Europe should be able to get at least 12 of these 16 questions right. I managed to get 15 correct, (I couldn't finish Number 1). (P.S. This survey isn't mine, I just found it and thought it was interesting to see how many could get it).

1. List 10 US Presidents and Major things they did in office.
2. Describe the French Revolution that began in 1789 in moderate detail.
3. List and name the six wives of Henry VIII of England, and what happened to each one.
4. List at least 3 Ancient Humanoid…

I'm not a teenager, and I believe I can answer at least 12 without further research, but anyone claiming that most American or European teenagers could, is dreaming.
I would suggest not one in a thousand could name 5 lovers/husbands of Cleopatra VII.
