A new survey of Americans’ knowledge of religion found that atheists, agnostics, Jews and Mormons outperformed Protestants and Roman Catholics in answering questions about major religions, while many respondents could not correctly give the most basic tenets of their own faiths.
While most people are born into their parent’s religion and stick with it for the duration of their lives, it’s usually a different matter for atheists and agnostics. They tend to evolve into their beliefs after some reflection and study.
And no, I am not implying that all religious individuals are idiots who do not ever reflect or study. Some of course do and come to form a stronger bond with their own religion. But I am suggesting that most people who refer to themselves as religious do not bother to ever question the tenets of their religion (or other religions) and choose to believe with little, if any, question or thought. Thus the poorer showing on the survey.
If you’re interested, Pew has an online quiz on religion you can use to test yourself.
