A new survey by the fine folks at Pew finds all kinds of interesting things about what people know and what people think they know about religion. I can mine this thing for days and I'd love to dig more into it now but I have class soon, so let me just pop out one of the more interesting finds (see below). On a religious knowledge survey, the least religious do the best, followed by Jews and Mormons.
Of course it's not this simple. The table below doesn't include controls for education, and we've not even gotten into how you actually measure religious knowledge (it's broad-based, evangelicals and Mormons, for example, do best on Christian-based knowledge). I'll write more later, when time allows. Fascinating stuff.
Take the 15-item quiz yourself, if you dare.
