Religious Knowledge Quiz

I'm not trying to introduce a thread that creates a religious squabble here, but I thought that this general interest quiz about religion was interesting. I scored a 15/15, but do not consider myself a very religious person.

I checked the rules/regs here and it does not appear to break any of them. If not appropriate, please delete and banish me to the corner.

15/15, and I am a flaming non-believer. A couple were guesses.

I also hit 15/15. The only one I wasn't sure of was one of the Supreme Court and school questions.

6/15 Better than I expected. I think I only knew 2 or 3 the rest were guesses.

15/15. I must say, nothing in the Pew study surprises me. Depressing, certainly. But not surprising.

I got 14/15 which surprised me because I had a mental block against my religious education.

I think the world would be a better place without religions.

14/15, and that was the one I got wrong. The only one of those three that was familiar to me was Billy Graham. I am very non-religious.

Comparative Religions (including atheism and agnosticism) was one of my favorite classes in college. So many religions, there's something for everyone!

I got 14/15--got Ramadan wrong .

Amazing how competitive we are for early retirees - folks that have supposedly given up the rat race. I've noticed this with many of the quizzes posted here. Perhaps it's just an excuse on my part for never getting 100% on the tests.

13/15 here -- missed the Jewish Sabbath and Great Awakening questions. I think there must be a moral or message in how well or poorly someone or other scores. But ... what is it?

14/15, but two were guesses. I'm an agnostic, but atheist for practical purposes.
