RE: Dear stupid: how many times does the earth rotate in a year?
Whenever I ask this question, 9 out of 10 get it wrong.

" Does Christmas Day and New Year's Day fall in the same year?"

According to Google, a calendar year is either 364 or 365 days.
An earth year is 365.25 days but some sites say 366.25

The 365.25 is correct. That's why we have the leap year. 4*.25 = extra day.

Do we include rotating around the sun as well and also relative to the sun?

Sorry, I couldn't access the forum for about an hour so the poll wasn't placed (and yet for some reason the thread was posted anyway), now it is - please answer it!

Also, I'll give the correct answer or answers later.

The WIN/Gallup End of Year Survey 2013 found the US was perceived to be the greatest threat to world peace by a huge margin, with 24% of respondents fearful of the US followed by: 8% for Pakistan, and 6% for China. This was followed by 5% each for: Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, North Korea. -LINK


"That's disgusting. There were clean athletes out there that have had their whole careers ruined by people like Lance Armstrong who just bended thoughts to fit their circumstances. He didn't look up cheating because he wanted to stop, he wanted to justify what he was doing and to keep that continuing on." - Nicole Cooke

It doesn't.

The universe spins around the Earth which is fixed in space.

Check mate, atheist.
