Are religious Americans really this stupid?

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

Yes.

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!

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.

What a dear and wonderful resource!

A few years ago, a friend of mine brought in Jesus Christ and nun action figures. The Christ action figure that this uncany thumbs up and smile! The nun figure was clearly unimpressed! The Christ figure very much reminded me of some used car salespersons, the nun, an IRS agent!
