(American) atheists know ‘more about religion than (American) believers’:
The US Religious Knowledge Survey, released Tuesday from the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, found atheists and agnostics know more basic facts about the Bible than either Protestants or Catholics. Among the other findings:
• 57 percent of Protestants can name the Bible’s four gospels.
• 55 percent of Catholics know their tradition teaches that sacramental bread and wine become Christ’s body and blood.
• 15 percent of white evangelicals know Jonathan Edwards participated in the First Great Awakening.
You can take a truncated form of the the quiz at the Pew website.
