28/32. Missed sabbath, "teach salvation comes from faith alone", Maimonides, and first four books of the Gospels.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

31/32, didn't know the Edwards and guessed wrong. I'm not proud of this score. Wish I scored zero.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

I can't believe how many of you didn't know who Jonathan Edwards was. Angry




Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

31/32. Annoyed because I knew that Indonesia was Muslim but for some reason I went Buddhist.

I'm homophobic in the same way that I'm arachnophobic. I'm not scared of gay people but I'm going to scream if I find one in my bath.

I'm. Also homophobic in the same way I'm arachnophobic. I'm scared of spiders but I'd still fuck'em.

That seems to have tripped up a lot of people. The key is to remember "the evening and the morning were the first day". Jewish holidays run from sundown to sundown so they start on the evening of the day before.

So let me guess this straight. Some 15 years ago the Catholics changed what appears to me to be a fundamental doctrine of their faith? Who knew the Word Of God was so amendable. Did 2/3 of the Catholic clergy have to agree?

Oh heck no. Ze pewp. He gets paid ta do that.
(To be honest, there is a fight even in the NT about the subject. I think James's Epistle
said "Faith without works is dead"). GWG probably knows more about that argument than I do.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Several years ago PBS had a series on religion in America and somehow waaaaaaaaaaay deep in my brain that name sounded familiar as something to do with a religious movement in the US. So that's what I chose.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Are you smarter than an atheist?
7. What is an agnostic?
- Someone who believes in God
- Someone who does NOT believe in God
- Someone who is unsure whether God exists
- Don't know

I think that the latter is technically correct.

8. Where, according to the Bible, was Jesus born?
- Bethlehem
- Jericho
- Jerusalem
- Nazareth
- Don't know

Two possible answers. They called him Jeez of Nav for a reason.

17. Would you tell me if Mother Teresa was ...
- Jewish
- Catholic
- Buddhist
- Mormon
- Hindu
- Don't know

Turns out she was an atheist but given that the Cafia never lets you leave...

RE: Are you smarter than an atheist?
31/32

The question about faith alone got me too. The rest were pretty easy. I see some people missed the question about Maimonides. There is a really good book about his life called Maimonides: The Life and World of One of Civilization's Greatest Minds (2008). I highly recommend it to those interested in the crusades, religious history, and Judeo-Islamic culture.
