It is remarkable that the general public has the wrong idea about the nature of science and maths?

A big factor is that a vast majority of people in the written press have arts degrees, and are activly disinterested in science. Unless you are reading more specific science press, the quality of science reporting is poor.

On top of this you have a vast amount of celebrity reporting that compresses the space that's available for other reporting. The vast increase in the number of TV channels also allows people to avoid any exposure to science.

why is Science that important to the average person when Brittneys got no underwear on?

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
