Ha!  I put their average atheist / agnostic to shame!  I got 31 or 97%.  Kind of surprising since I grew up without much religion – was semi-forced to go to a Methodist church from ages ~12-16 but never read the Bible or was a believer.  

But I do read a lot and had a couple religion classes in college, so I guess I’ve picked up a lot about religion here and there.

I got 25. 

Interestingly enough, I missed more of the questions about Catholocism (I’m Protestant) than about entirely different religions. Most of the ones I missed, I had narrowed it down to 2 and chose incorrectly.

@luluvohn:  I’m American, raised Catholic, but have been Protestant for most of my life.  I scored a 29 or 91 percent. 

Of the three questions I answered incorrectly, I talked myself out of one right answer, and I should have gotten a second one correct if I had thought about it long enough. However, there was one question that I had absolutely no knowledge of whatsoever.

I got 26 right. The ones I got wrong were to do with American schools and government as I’m from New Zealand, but studied religion at uni.

I was raised Catholic.

I’m an AmericaN Mormon. I got 27 out of 32 but the ones I missed were ones I struggled between two answers for except for one. I’m one of the only Mormons where I live though so I could see why I scored “above average” I’m surrounded by other beliefs

@luluvohn:  I had to guess a couple, but got all 32 🙂 I’m an Australian Protestant.

(To be more accurate there were 28 questions about religion (had to guess 1) and 4 about the USA constitution (had to guess most of them but got lucky)).

I am an American Protestant. I got 29 correct. The ones I missed were people, such as “who is Maimperson?”

29 although some of the ones I got right I wasn’t certain about.  I’m Protestant.

I got one of the US ones wrong, the faith Catholics vs. Protestants (that was a whoops, I misread it, I know that for Catholics it’s not faith alone but picked both) and the first great awakening – I’ve heard of it before but don’t know much about it.

Atheist, and I got a 31! @lolot:, lol, go atheists. 🙂

I actually have a degree in religious studies, so I should have gotten them all right. My religions of India teacher would be ashamed!!

Also, seriously, there was ONE question about Islam? The world’s second-largest religion? And it was “What is the name of its holy book?” and one of the answer choices was “Islam’s Holy Book”?! SMH.

I got 29 correct. I left the LDS church as a teenager and would consider myself agnostic I guess. I’m surprised that the article said the average was so low. The ones I got incorrect were about specific people, Job and Maimonides. Interesting 🙂

@luluvohn:  I got 30 out of 32 correct. I didn’t know the first question or the one about Indonesia’s major religious practices.

I was raised Protestant, turned agnostic, and now I’m somewhere in between. 🙂
