America - Dominates Top 100 Universities

According to these rankings.

In fact, all the universities in the top 20 are American except for three. And out of the top 40, only 7 are not American.

Perhaps Justin Webb, of the BBC, would care to explain his comment that:

America is often portrayed as an ignorant, unsophisticated sort of place, full of bible bashers and ruled to a dangerous extent by trashy television, superstition and religious bigotry, a place lacking in respect for evidence based knowledge.

I know that is how it is portrayed because I have done my bit to paint that picture, and that picture is in many respects a true one.

Yes you have Justin, you and the whole BBC crew.
