    This is an online version of the religious knowledge test. There are 15 multiple choice questions. Once you finish you can compare your results with the general population and see the results of those who took the original version.

    http://features.pewforum.org/quiz/us-religious-knowledge/?q=1

    I scored 14 out of 15 and am told that I am ranked in the top 1% of the population. Unfortunately this isn't really a good test for religious knowledge. The questions are too few and superficial. I was tempted to say that the writings of St Thomas Aquinas caused the reformation, rather than Martin Luther. But I digress.

    I scored 10/15...better than I expected to be honest. I suppose it's interesting that for my lack of diligent and comprehensive reading of such 'literature' I still tread the eastern slope of the bell curve. 😕

    Why does a person consider the christian doctrine, which is what that test is all about, the standard of all religions referencing.

    Christian doctrine was fabricated only nearly 2000 yrs ago, and the teachings of Jesus were raped by the compilers of the Bible for their own purposes, so why does almost everyone consider those teachings the "all and all" of religious thought?

    Its clearly not.

    Now hold on there, you make it sound as if fabricating doctrine is a bad thing. After all, if you didn't think it was fabricated what would you have to do with your time? Hmmm?

    Well, I counted six questions which were specifically concerned with non-Christian religions. Only a few were actually related to doctrine (such as the Catholic teaching on transubstantiation) and a few were simply general knowledge (the main religion of Pakistan.) It is also hard to see how knowing that Joseph Smith founded the LDS constitutes religious knowledge. Anyway, I don't think that this test at all suggests Christian doctrine as the reference for all religions.

    13/15 Would've been 14/15 if I hadn't had a couple of glasses of red and careless, (but not driving). Tip: Always play chess with me in that state. (me, not you, but then...?)

    Cheers.

    My mistake then, I only looked at the first two pages, but my point still stands.
