    Default Yay, Atheists

    Survey: Americans don't know much about religion

    By RACHEL ZOLL, AP Religion Writer Rachel Zoll, Ap Religion Writer ? Tue Sep 28

    A new survey of Americans' knowledge of religion found that atheists, agnostics, Jews and Mormons outperformed Protestants and Roman Catholics in answering questions about major religions, while many respondents could not correctly give the most basic tenets of their own faiths.

    "A new survey of Americans' knowledge of religion found that atheists.....outperformed (meaning were more knowledgable).....in answering questions about major religions."

    This explains (to the uninitiated) why we atheists ARE atheists.

    You answered 14 out of 15 questions correctly for a score of 93%. I missed #12.What religion do most people in Pakistan consider themselves? I said Hindu, but Muslim is correct. Guess I shouldn't have cut class that day at Atheism Catechism.

    14. Which of these religions aims at nirvana, the state of being free from suffering? I chose Hinduism.

    I am not sure which one I missed as the server was to busy to get my report. I know I got the Pakistan question right so apparently I missed a different Atheism Catechism day than Spider did.

    Spider - I told you to take notes for me that day. What's up with that??

    Yay Mormons, apparently

    PS this protestant got 100% on the quiz, though I was kind of guessing on the "Supreme Court" ones.
