Here's one I took about six months ago.... I think there are thirty two questions.

30/32

30/32 but I dispute 1 of my wrong answers apparently Calvanism's predetermination is not a Protestant sect. Also the baptists requirement of baptism in christs name is not Protestant. The other one was a name I had never heard before.

If I'm thinking of the same question, I believe that Protestant one was phrased something like "most Protestants". But I question the accuracy of that too and that was one of the questions I got wrong as well. There are so many Protestant religions - unless they were including only the larger ones, I find the quiz answer hard to believe.

12. Which of these religious groups traditionally teaches that salvation comes through faith alone?

29/32 on that quiz, but I can't see any of the averages.

Yup, that's the one. It was the word "traditionally" that made me think "usually" which for Protestants could mean "most". But whether the question meant "all" or "most", I don't think either is right.

13/15 4&5 wrong.

And Jonathan Edwards is a British triple jumper who held the world record. He was also known for being a christian but who now is an atheist I believe.

RE: Religion Quiz
For fairness I think it is worth noting that once you put the self-identifying atheist/agnostic group together with the nones the average score drops from 17 down to 13.6[1]. If we assume that the Protestant group consists of both active and apathetic theists when it seems fairer to compare against the combined active and apathetic atheist counts. For comparison the Protestant average was 13.2, only slightly lower than the atheist/agnostic+nones count.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
