    I have prepared a short quiz to help us review some things that we have learned through our spiritual debates.

    Please answer each item True or False, and offer any elaborations that you feel are necessary. Note that some may be trick questions.


    1) The General Argument from Evil requires the specification of a particular moral theory.

    2) Week 8 Bible Study was on Discipline.

    3) Ivanhoe is a Catholic priest.

    4) The Strong Atheist refuses to believe in God's existence due to a lack of empirical evidence.

    5) Grace is a sufficient condition for salvation.

    6) According to the Catholic Catechism, hell is literally a lake of fire.

    7) Catholics have bigger Bibles than Protestants.

    8) The Spirituality ex Debates forum is an aesthetic blemish.

    9) The Bible is written so that even the simple minded ["that means retardeds"] can understand it.

    10) John 3:16 declares a falsehood, because belief in Jesus is not actually a sufficient condition for salvation.

    I'll have a go. No cheating either.

    1) F

    2) uhm . . . uh . . . T

    3) F

    4) trick question T but often thinks that the very concept of god is unclear

    5) F

    6) T

    7) T

    8) F

    9) F (Counterexample: Darfius)

    10) T

    Ok now may I suggest an extra credit question?

    "Probability theory demonstrates that almost surely a god designed the universe. If T, provide a proof. If F, why not?"

    1. False

    2. I was truant

    3. Undecidable, but if his nomination for FW Pope is credible, he's a Cardinal over at FW.

    4. No, the strong atheist makes the claim that there is no god, and presumably has some evidence in favour of this claim.

    5. No, that's chicken tikka masala, cigarettes or Starrman's avatar.

    6. I don't know actually. Ivanhoe?

    7. True.

    8. True.

    9. Did RBHILL provide this question?

    10. Apparently so.

    1) F

    2) No idea

    3) No (?)

    4) F. The Strong Atheists insists that he absolutely knows there is no God. The problem describes a Weak Atheist.

    5) I don't know what "grace" is. Furthermore, different religions will answer this differently I am sure.

    6) F (?). I think they say it's a separation from God.

    7) Don't know.

    8) F.

    9) F

    10) Depends on your personal belief.

    So far, the results of this experiment have been quite enlightening. Let's give it another day before I present my conclusions.
