How much do you know about the subject of…religion? Not necessarily your religion, but religion in general.
Earlier this year the Pew Research Center attempted to answer this question as far as Americans go. They designed a 15 question quiz that they asked 3,412 randomly selected adults in the United States last May.
Then, as usual, they sorted all the information gleaned from the survey by age, race, geography, religion, etc. Here are a few highlights from their study:
- Atheists/Agnostics scored the highest on the quiz on religion…go figure.
- Jews came in second
- Mormons came in third
- Hispanic Catholics and Black Protestants came in last
I took the 15 question quiz and missed one. Maybe if I converted to Judaism I would known a little more about the First Great Awakening. You can take the quiz here. Feeling brave? Leave your results in a comment.
