Religious knowledge

Pew Research posted the results of their religious knowledge survey. Interesting results to say the least. Kinda funny that atheists and agnostics scored the best, and those with higher education got more answers correct than those with less than a high school education.

Re: Religious knowledge

I guess I'm not surprised.

The greatest enemy to prejudice......is knowledge.

Re: Religious knowledge

Not much of a shocker to me, learned that in church along time ago. specially about the atheists and agnostics, remind me of a bible verus about the devil being smart and knowledgable(paraphrasing) about religion so he knew how to pick it apart/tempt people.

Re: Religious knowledge

That simply shows you the direction people gravitate as they acquire knowledge.

Adam and Eve are at the bottom, and the Devil is at the top. As you become more and more knowledgeable you cannot honestly remain at the bottom. Not honestly. You may choose to associate elsewhere, but with knowledge the natural flow is migration toward the top of that list.

Gaining knowledge is no different now than it was in the garden. As you take bites of the apples from the tree of knowledge the farther and farther you distance yourself from the garden.

So education is the product of the devil?

Or is it perhaps that atheists and agnostics aren't blinded by religious dogma?

A fancy way of saying "ignorance is bliss".

Which is precisely what we are told in Genesis through the story of Adam and Eve. Apparently their biggest mistake was to gain the knowledge that they were in fact ignorant slaves, tilling the garden in the nude. If they had instead ignorantly continued doing that same old task, day in and day out, without question they could have remained "blissful" as intended.


My take is, whenever ignorance is praised like that, there's an obvious cover up going on.

Well atheists and agnostics value knowledge, religious people tend to think they already know everything...

One of them truckless bastards.
