    18 with a few lucky guesses in there

    Not sure why there is a don't know option though when obviously that can't be the right answer.. may as well just guess
    To give yourself a more accurate picture of your own religious knowledge, guessing lots correctly doesn't mean you know lots about religious traditions. It's not like guessing in a multiple choice exam, where there is a benefit to yourself by having a score higher than what reflects your knowledge

    30. Do you happen to know the name of the holy book of Islam?

    A) Islam's Holy Book


    B) The Bible


    C) Qur'an

    haha...they basically give you the answer.....though it is slightly disturbing that people only managed to get 14 on the test.

    I got 1 wrong. I didn't know which preacher participated in the Great Awakening.

    Very Christian and American bias.

    I would have loved more questions about Zoroastrian, Baha'i, branches of Islam, events in the Hindu Vedas, etc.

    I got 4/5 got bored.

    SoI'm going to say 30/32

    4/5 = 80%

    80% * 32 = 25.6

    31 questions out of 32 correct so yes, I am - unsurprisingly - smarter than an atheist.

    I did not know the answer to the Question about the Great Awakening

    Also, the format of that quiz was awful.

    It's in the Christian Science Monitor, what did you expect?!

    As for people going 'Christian and Science in the same phrase?! Ho ho ho' - it's a kind of Protestant denomination founded relatively recently in Massachusetts. The CSM isn't entirely religious though and is actually seen as the most influential liberal paper in some southern states. Which I find pretty funny/horrifying but there you go. Christian Scientists have quite different beliefs to other Christian denominations, if you want to know more go ask Wikipedia. No, I'm not a Christian Scientist, and no, I can't be bothered even beginning to get into why I know so much about Christian Science.

    Edit: 28/32 for me, not too bad.

    There's a science quiz on that site. 50 questions. One of them was something like "How old is the Earth? a) 6015 years, b) 4.5 millions years, c) 4.5 billion years". Thankfully, the author of that quiz has some brain cells...

    I got 30 and I'm an atheist. I hope they don't use that quiz to say that it's only christian people answering it.

    Yeah I guess it makes sense, but honestly who is actually going to choose the 'don't know' option for everything they aren't 100% sure of?

    Disagree with their definition of agnostic.
    25/32. Solid first:p:
    15/32.Agnosticism is not being sure whether god exists-this is taught at GCSE so there is no disagreement that is the definition.

    the early questions are the easiest-i was getting them all right and then got most of the later ones wrong.

    And, fortunately for me, that is the difference between me and you.

    I'm joking; after that GCSE thing I have some vendetta against you; which I really shouldn't so sorry mate!
