Take our short, 15-question quiz, and see how you do in comparison with 3,412 randomly sampled adults who were asked these and other questions in the U.S. Religious Knowledge Survey. This national poll was conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life from May 19 through June 6, 2010, on landlines and cell phones, in English and Spanish.

Jews reckon the end of a day and thus the beginning of the new day (ritually speaking) is when the sun goes down. Catholics have maintained this practice.

Got a 93. Missed “nirvana.” I thought “nirvana” was a Hindu concept, not Buddhist. My bad.

Me, too, but it doesn’t bother me much. Not something I really feel like stressing over.

15 out of 15

For me it seems that even if you were never formally taught all of the facts, just living day to day and keeping yourself informed would tend to expose you to many of the correct answers.

It’s not really about religion..

It’s more of a cultural over view in the area of religion.

100%. Had to think about the Jonathan Edwards question a bit, knew he was part of one of the great awakenings but not which one.

This Jewish kid who grew up in the ‘burbs of Boston aced it. 15 out of 15, though I gotta admit I took a guess on one or two of them...

You don’t know your bible history. At all.

Like most things that are religious, that probably is coupled to the "powers that be".
