A recent survey that measured Americans' knowledge of religion found that atheists and agnostics knew more, on average, than followers of most major faiths.

So here is a quiz: How much do you really know about religion?

For the record, I got 14 out of 15 correct. And I'm agnostic.

I got 11/15 for a 73 %. I got one of the questions about school wrong. I had no idea who Joseph Smith was.

you answered 15 out of 15 questions correctly for a score of 100%

*shrugs* I would of thought that most of those were common sense things, but then both my father (a chaplain/pastor) and my senior yr Bible teacher insisted that we be exposed to many different faiths and their teachings

I got 60%, but the questions I got wrong were mostly aimed at Americans. And thanks to my poor memory from Sunday school I got a couple of the bible ones wrong too. I got all the questions on Jews, Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists correct. And I'm Christian. Hence proving the point I think that this isn't really about what religion you are but about how educated you are. Here in the UK kids are taught about ALL religions. Few kids attend single religion schools and virtually none are homeschooled (I'd guess the vast majority of home schooled American kids are never taught anything about any religion except Christianity). I also suspect religious education is not to the same standard in American public schools as it is here in the UK, and I think that partly explains why there's, as far as I can tell, more religious tension and segregation there than here. And of course athiests are more likely to make the effort to educate themselves.

I took this quiz yesterday and the ones I didn't answer correctly were concerning the american school system, one was whether or not a teacher can lead a prayer and I can't remember the second one, so 13/15, I'm an atheist.

14/15. I'm Wiccan.

I have to admit though that I took educated guesses on the US education system questions. I really had to dig deep to try to remember what I'd heard on American tv.

15/15 :D

Although I guessed on which day the Jewish Sabbath began. I thought it was Monday, honestly (and that wasn't a choice.)

Haha. Wow. :|

I went to a Christian school from 4th grade on. I haven't been to church since early 2008.

& I still only got 8/15, lol. We did learn about other religions, but we didn't go into a lot of depth. I wish it would've.
