A 4th Grade Science Quiz You Won't Believe

A student received a score of A+ for answering questions like "The Earth is billions of years old" by answering "False."

The folks on Reddit don't have a lot of credibility these days, so we tread with caution in sharing this image, which may indeed be a fake. According to one Redditor, the picture, which is of a science quiz called "Dinosaurs: Genesis and the Gospel," was administered at a private religious elementary school in South Carolina. The student who filled it out has received a score of A+ for answering questions like "The Earth is billions of years old" by answering "False." 

There are certainly a lot of things fishy about this image. We have been unable to identify whether it is an authentic quiz or a fake. What do you think?
