Are You Smarter Than An Atheist?

September 29th, 2010, Promulgated by Bernie

Are you smarter than an atheist? (Click to read the article.) That’s the title of a column written by James Akin that I received this morning as part of my daily e-news brief from the National Catholic Register newspaper. The article by Mr. Akin is in reaction to the Pew Forum quiz that you probably heard about yesterday purporting to suggest how knowledgeable -or not- we all are in this country about religion. (See Dr. K’s post on this here.)

There is no question in my mind that the level of Catholics’ understanding of their own faith has dropped precipitously over the last 40 years, but Akins makes some very interesting points regarding the survey.

You can read/take the whole survey here.

    It really doesnot ask questions concrning Catholicism. It mainly is a survey of all the world’s religions and much of it is simply related to history.
