Sometimes it's easy for a reasonable person to forget just how creepy some of this gets:

Four in 10 Catholics misunderstood the meaning of their church's central ritual, incorrectly saying that the bread and wine used in Holy Communion are intended to merely symbolize the body and blood of Christ, not actually become them.


Is it time to say: "EEEeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwe!", yet?



Full disclosure: Lord knows, I would have missed that question, too.

On the contrary, I think the results mean that if you're dumb you believe in God. It's a chicken/egg hypothesis




Did religion make people dumb? Or did dumb people make religion?

Were people atheists before the concept of God was developed?

Not surprising that the majority is complacent and the minority -- atheists, agnostics, Jews and LDS -- aren't, and have been forced by circumstances (or osmosis) to acquire knowledge about the majority. I'd think you find the same in other areas, too.

I agree that this is the most worrying finding:

For comparison purposes, the survey also asked some questions about general knowledge, which yielded the scariest finding: 4% of Americans believe that Stephen King, not Herman Melville, wrote "Moby Dick."




Stephen King? Stephen King!!??

Everyone knows Led Zeppelin wrote Moby Dick!

P.S. I knew a girl in high school that thought John Bonham was God. She named her black cat after him.

The thread is titled with "Religion", not Christian, but everyone is taking a dump on the Christian faith, why not Muslim, Jewish, Hindu..... etc....
Are followers of other faiths also the dumbest people on the planet?

The first thing they have in their favor is they don't believe Jesus is the son of God.

Great point.

Mike Singletary....wearing a huge cross for all to see, and coaching an 0-3 team who looks very poorly-coached....isn't exactly helping prove this thread wrong for God-fearing Believers like myself.
