“Electricity is a mystery. No one has ever observed it or felt it. We can see, hear, and feel only what electricity does. We know that it makes light bulbs shine and irons heat up and telephones ring. But we can not say what electricity itself is like.”
Thats what the book titled “Science Student Text: Grade 4” claims. The book is currently in its 4th edition and is published by Bob Jones University, a private, for-profit university in Greenville, South Carolina.
I don’t know if the writers of the book have ever been to a 4th grade science class, but I knew what electricity was when I was in 2nd grade. And I went to a baptist school! It doesn’t take a master scientist to know that electricity is. And even if the knowledge isn’t known by laymen, it should be known by someone tasked with writing a book about it! A simple Google search took me about 5 seconds (including loading time) to find a bunch of websites that explain, in varying levels of detail, how electricity works and what it is.
Stay in school, kids
