Say what? It probably won't come... because it's in the books you've read? Your sentence makes zero sense.

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

We got a thousand points of light for the homeless man. We've got a kinder, gentler, machine gun hand. Neil Young, Rockin' in the Free World.

No it is based on math I studied in sixth grade, just plain old addition, substraction and multiplication. -- ICANT

48% of high school students or graduates believe in a 10K old specially created world.
42% of those with 'some college'
24% of college graduates
21% of postgraduates.

These stats almost certainly do not reflect an educating process. At least not completely. I suspect that most of the difference is screening, and perhaps self-screening. College weeds out folks who are not able to absorb a college education. There is a similar cut at the point where it is time to enroll in graduate school.

"less inclined"

I am suggesting that to be part of the reason. Less inclined plus less able along with the possibility of being educated out of YEC beliefs.
