It's not surprising. Atheists are atheists precisely because they know more about religion than the theists do.

Damn, I got them all right! I must be a well read genius! Nah! Just been around for a while. Had to think about the first question for a few seconds, sorry, should have been faster on the draw.
'Belief' does not equal 'Knowledge'. Sorry Theists!
Spare me the details is the attitude of most American theists.
Theist- "Mom & dad told me about jesus that's all I need to know."
What a lazy attitude......
My parents told me about Jesus also. It just did not seem to me anything else than a personality cult. Elvis? LOL
I love to ask Jehovah's Witnesses at my door to give me their explanation of II Kings, Chapter 2, Verses 23&24. They just stare at me. I even had a couple of them admit to me once that they didn't know what the Pentateuch was. I love it!
Side note: today in the high school that I work in they read from the bible because they were going over different creation stories, and one of my students said that he was an atheist (made my day).
I would love to administer this test in the bible belt and cross reference the results with the rest of the nation! I'm sure I'd get a giggle out of it.
Definitely worth reading:

Amanda - I don't suppose you offered them my section entitled, "Gods 'r' Us"?
