Pulled this from the Phish board on PT.

"Atheists and agnostics, Jews and Mormons are among the highest-scoring groups in a 32-question survey of religious knowledge by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. On average, Americans got 16 of the 32 questions correct. Atheists and agnostics got an average of 20.9 correct answers. Jews (20.5) and Mormons (20.3). Protestants got 16 correct answers on average, while Catholics got 14.7 questions right.
How will you do on the quiz?"


I felt bad scoring 27 out of 32, but apparently the average American can only answer half. Not really surprising....Oh, and as an atheist, I find it hilarious that I know more about religion than most protestant and catholic folks...

This is cool! I'm 15 of 17 so far. . . thought Job was the guy who founded Apple.

The question writing sucks though! If you start a question with "Would you tell me if. . . (and then a question)" then the only two possible answers should be "yes" or "no"!

I got 28/32: didn't know my preachers, my mormons, my supreme court rulings, or my old testament well enough.

31. The Catholic thing got me. I thought the bread/wine were symbols of the body/blood of Christ.

Not bad for a Protestant, though! :tongue1:

I knew I should have done a screen shot to prove it. :lol:

Religion is a topic that's always fascinated me so I do some reading on stuff here and there.
