How much do you know about religion? Take the quiz
http://features.pewforum.org/quiz/us-rel...nowledge/?

Without any study, I took the quiz and scored in the 97th percentile of all people. This isn't that unusual, either, next to devout Jews, atheists and agnostics beat out everyone else on their knowledge of religion.

RE: How much do you know about religion? Take the quiz
Quote: 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.
Those are the results of the one they did with the study (it had 32 not 15 questions).

I can't see how anyone, especially an adult, could score that low. I gave the test to my little brother an even he got 18.

I took that quiz a long time ago and missed only the John Edwards one.

I got 100%, but they were pretty easy questions.

I slipped up on the Jewish Sabbath. I didn't read the question closely enough Smile
I also have no idea who John Edwards is. I chalk both up to living in Australia.

So are you trying to say that Jonathan can't talk to spirits too?

RE: How much do you know about religion? Take the quiz
Thanks to ghostexorcist I got 100% Tongue But only because I read this thread first, I wouldn't have gotten the last question otherwise.

Don't look at me like that! I went to catholic school Confused

It only took about 20 seconds to go through the questions and I got 100% right! It was a total no-brainer.
