Thread: Online Test on General Knowledge of Religion

  1. #1

    Online Test on General Knowledge of Religion

    See how well you do: http://features.pewforum.org/quiz/us...ous-knowledge/

    I got two incorrectly.

    Below I go into detail on which ones I got wrong:

    The first I got incorrectly requires you to consider the phrasing of the question as it pertains to our clock regarding the Jewish Sabbath.

    The second I got wrong was the question regarding teachers whether or not teachers are allowed to read from the Bible in public schools as matter of literature.

    I missed #4 and #15. 13/15 isn't bad for an atheist.

  5. #5
    13/15

    I missed the questions about Martin Luther and Jonathan Edwards.

    15/15. Tracks with overall results; atheists and agnostics tend to score pretty highly.

    I missed the same thing in reference to the beginning of the sabbath. Also, I was off on the bread & wine Catholicism thing. Not bad for never having been raised in a religious fashion.
    An administrator made me remove my signature.

    I got that one right because my grandson came over his first year of college and wanted me to explain what his teacher wanted him to understand about an english lesson. I looked over the paperwork and realized it was an excerpt from the Quran. Kind of interesting... The questions were things like: Do you believe these are the words of a peaceful person?

    Anyway, I figured if you could get away with teaching kids about the Quran, the Bible had to be there somewhere.

    True, I went to public school only from K-4, and I don't remember religion or its texts ever being taught in any way.
