Haha same, I'd always wished we'd learned about the civil war instead of the 'The American West' and the 'History of Medicine' but actually came in useful (for the first time!) today.
Only got 23 right though, darned questions about the US court rulings.
I found the american west dull but I liked the medicine topic.

15/32.Agnosticism is not being sure whether god exists-this is taught at GCSE so there is no disagreement that is the definition.
And at gcse we're taught electron orbitals go 2,8,8,18.., and that distributivity applies to everything. Knowledge does extend past GCSE y'know.
The real definition is a belief that it's impossible to know, not being 'in the middle' as lots think. Check out the root words.
30/32; not too sure on Protestant doctrine or Mamonides, it seems. I am quite shocked that the average score in America was so low, a lot of questions in that quiz were general knowledge more than anything else.
I got a 30/32. I don't know much about the Mormon religion (I'm still young I'll learn) and the question about public schools being permitted to read to us the Bible as literature I'm pretty sure isn't true. I'm in high school and the closest there was to "biblical literature" was chorus/band songs. But, hey, a 30s not bad for being a high school student
"Atheists and agnostics, Jews and Mormons are among the highest-scoring groups in a 32-question survey of religious knowledge by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. On average, Americans got 16 of the 32 questions correct. Atheists and agnostics got an average of 20.9 correct answers. Jews (20.5) and Mormons (20.3). Protestants got 16 correct answers on average, while Catholics got 14.7 questions right."
Suprised they didn't include all of America's 48543280489232 denominations.

See how you fare. I got 27/32. One Q in there I think is a bit odd but the rest are the kind of facts you might learn in RE/RS which, at least in my day, we all took in secondary school.
