RE: Religion Quiz
15/15 on the original quiz.

The second quiz ... I clicked Friday and then 'Next' and a pop-up asks me to "Please select an answer" and I can go no further.

So I guess I scored 100%

RE: Religion Quiz
15/15. Whittled one question down to two possibilities and got lucky, the rest I knew.

About 80% of the questions were about Judeo-Christianity. Mostly Christianity (including Mormonism), but it's a bit hard to separate them during the old-testament questions. Regarding other religions, I got exactly 1 question each for Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and they were basic, easy gimmes compared to the Christianity questions. There was also exactly 1 question that was applicable to Judaism and NOT Christianity, again, a gimme. If we count Mormonism as separate from Christianity (I don't, but a lot of Christians do), there was 1 question about IT which was also a gimme. There were 2 questions about Supreme Court decisions. No questions about laws in other countries. My inference: Pew assumes, as a baseline, that you're American and Christian. Hardly a surprise.

Clicked on the Religious Affiliation breakdown of answers to see how people of various religions did. A little surprised that Jews did one point better than Atheist/Agnostics, but not all that surprised, I'd expect both to be near the top. Not surprised at all that both beat out every Christian category there was. Kinda surprised that Mormons were high up there (a close 3rd place), but then remembered missionary service. They train that junk into you. Also, I suspect they'd have done much worse relative to atheists/agnostics if there'd been more questions, or deeper questions, about religions outside of Christianity.

Warning Labels: Long-winded. Twisted sense of humor (including puns, literalisms, absurdisms, all complicated by sarcasm and deadpan delivery). Contrarian. Do not combine with high quantities of sugar, acid (corrosive or hallucinogenic), or people who take themselves too seriously.

You can't just add things without changing the total number of things there. You're the House of Cantor, not the Hilbert Hotel!
