The Pew Survey I am talking about is groups of people and their knowledge wen it came to Religion.
http://pewforum.org/Other-Beliefs-and-Practices/U-S-Religious-Knowledge-Survey.aspx

It seems that Atheist Score the highest in the knowledge of or religion.



Tell you the truth I am not very surprised, the reason most former religious people became Atheist is do to reading and understanding their Bibles.

And those of us who have always been atheist.. Get targeted by religious knocking on are doors all the time.. Its good to have a bible around so that you can pawn them in their own converting rants.
Heaven forbid we do not believe in your imaginary friend.. we are going to burn because we want evidence and facts.

I answered 9 out of 15 questions correctly, which is 60%

Looking at the chart is kind of ironic, really. Can't say I'm really surprised, but it's pretty funny.

Isn't that something,but if your going to go against something it's important to have an understanding of it.But those like evangelists dedicate their lives to their religion.Strange,but in a funny way not suprising.

This test looks like educationally breakdown in the country it self. I generally asked them why dose god have to be a man. Amazing the responses I get back most look dumb founded then they will pull stuff out bible and I will answer a man wrote this book right. By this time I am pointing at my sign No solicitors and Bible thumper may get shot.

Shorthand for "Photoshopped".

Personally, I think the reason that mostly atheists scored high on the "online" test is because they goolged their answers at the same time.
I mean since we are dealing with just the religious facts here, what's not to say that there are at least a handful of sites in existence, that provide just those details?

I got 13/15 (87%) on the test, though I guessed one so only 12 really.

I am a little sad at the lack of general knowledge, like only 54% of Americans knowing that the Koran is the Islamic holy book...

When I looked at the questions asked... I knew all of them

EDIT: Oops haha not trying to sound cocky, my school's different I mean, they made us learn all this stuff in 7-8th grades and in high school we're going in depth with it.
