    Biblical knowledge! how much do you really know?

    (formerly - Biblical ignorance, how ignorant are you?)


    very informative article, here's a wee taster -


    Atheists and agnostics, Jews and Mormons are among the highest-scoring groups on a new survey of religious knowledge, outperforming evangelical Protestants, mainline Protestants and Catholics on questions about the core teachings, history and leading figures of major world religions.


    On average, Americans correctly answer 16 of the 32 religious knowledge questions on the survey by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life. Atheists and agnostics average 20.9 correct answers. Jews and Mormons do about as well, averaging 20.5 and 20.3 correct answers, respectively. Protestants as a whole average 16 correct answers; Catholics as a whole, 14.7. Atheists and agnostics, Jews and Mormons perform better than other groups on the survey even after controlling for differing levels of education.

    Thats because some people who claim to be "christian", never go to church or read the bible.

    Couldn't agree more

    I WENT TO THAT WEBSITE AND GOT 13 OUT OF 15 AND IM A CROSS BETWEEN A JOHOVA WITNESS AND A UNATERIAN: I GO AROUND BANGING ON DOORS FOR NO APPARENT REASON!

    Wasn't aware that heaven was handing out "report cards" about one's religion and comparing with different communities. Hump!

    I know just as much about religion as I care to know.

    I'll go along with that!

    Mormonism is not sound Christian doctrine. Mormons believe they can become Gods themselves. They believe that when they die, they go with their wife as a new Adam and Eve to other planets to populate them. That is why they go through a ceremony in their temples to be sealed as couples for eternity. This is why they don't have normal weddings like other people. After coming back from the temple ceremony they will have a reception. Also, they believe Satan and Jesus are brothers. They exalt Joseph Smith instead of Jesus. They do not believe in the Trinity. They believe there are more gods than One. These are just a few major points about their unsound doctrine. It is a very twisted religion.

    I am not suppose to be judging anyone but if I were I would call mormonism intellectual incest.
