46 of 50 here.

50, but oddly, many of the questions are etymological rather than scientific...

And many are historical. Consider

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

RE: PEW Science Quiz
I got 10/12 and I'm pretty stupid about science but just living life has learned me a few damned things. And why the hell was astrology even a question. That's dumb.

Edit: I see there's another quiz posted. I'm staying clear of that one. Gonna quit while I'm behind.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

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.

I may be remembering incorrectly, but I felt biology was under-represented in the quizzes. They are always physics and chem heavy...

RE: PEW Science Quiz
Well I guess I associate chemistry with biology because it seems like if you get really deep into biology you're probably going to have to have an understanding of chemical interaction. That's how life works. Then again, I'm not going into science so it's all academic anyway.

11 out of 12. Missed the magnifying glass question
8 out of 10 on the Spatial one. I got 6 & 8 wrong and got lucky on 10 as I guessed after eliminating 1 answer.
