01) Can We Guess Your Education Level By Your Biblical Knowledge?

“Despite the fact that the main religion in the United States is Christianity, most people don’t actually know much about the Bible. Whether or not you believe The Bible is literal, one cannot understate its significance to our culture. This famous book compilation has stories present in three of the world’s major religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. For many, it’s the direct Word of God! And one of the best things about the Bible is the rich stories that were told. Everyone should have some basic awareness of what these stories are, and why the Bible means so much to so many people all around the globe.

So in this educational quiz about the Bible, we asked questions about some of the obvious choices, like Abraham and Jesus and Mary. However, we also had a few questions about things you might not recall. Do you know who Lydia in the New Testament is? You should! The great thing about this quiz is that it’s fun, educational, and helps you be aware of the things in the Bible you may have forgotten. If you grew up going to Sunday School and church, this quiz should be easy-peasy… right? Learning stories from the Bible might have been a part of your daily life! So, without further ado, here is our Biblical figures quiz. Hopefully you haven’t forgotten them all! Do you? Prove it… and maybe we can guess your education level on top of it.”

PhD Knowledge!

You’re clearly a Bible scholar… you’ve got to have a PhD! Very impressive!”

Yes…I only took this once.

I knew most of the answers…where I had to guess, I went with the most familiar name…

…A few of these questions stumped me…and I missed about half a dozen of them.

In reality, my knowledge isn’t quite “PhD” level…but it’s like I’ve said many times before…

…I grew up in the church…private christian school, and all…I’ve forgotten more about the bible, than most people will ever know about the bible.

      I am atheist because theology is not credibly substantiated.

      So many years of my life were spent being raised and conditioned to accept all of it, without even the first ounce of critical assessment.

      For a large portion of my life, I believed the bible was “the word of god”, or “inspired word of god”, at the very least…and accepted it as true, just as I accepted that “1+1=2″…Theology was completely interwoven with all other aspects of my schooling and education.

      …They even sneaked religious indoctrination into mathematics, if you can believe that.

      I am a strong opponent of religious groups having their own K through 12, private schools.

      It is insane, what they are allowed to get away with.

      The irony, isn’t really much of an irony…

      The experience was mixed while I was going through it…but it was also very negative and psychologically injurious, given the hostility towards homosexuality…which, of course, I am and was.

      When I had several years distance from all of that, I could finally look at what I’d been through, and at religion itself, with a critical mind…which I’d never done before.

      It is typical once you get to this point, to fall out of “your” religion…and sometimes, to become entirely sober and disillusioned about theology.

      The primary way cults and religions keep people in them, is by group pressure…the larger group clinging onto them…and cutting off the outside world. You get outside of that, and half the battle is won…you can actually begin to heal and grow.

      The irony…is how few people who are involved with Christianity and Judaism, are likely to do even half as well as I have here.

      But then…one of the hallmarks of atheism, is that we commonly possess minds which thoroughly delve into things…We don’t just accept something, because “everybody else” is reaffirming it…We see the manipulations, when they are there.

      Most religious people are born into it, and simply go along with it…They typically don’t even involve themselves in it, much beyond accepting the title and maybe attending services a few times a week. They don’t seriously study the texts of “their” religion.

      I, on the other hand, had exactly that imposed upon me…daily…

      …and I now have a lot of useless knowledge about the bible, Christianity and Judaism [by default].

      So much time and energy in my early years was wasted on this…instead of actually preparing me to function in the real world.

      I’ve often looked upon my religious schooling as a personal psychological crippling, and a social hobbling…which occurred because other people felt good about putting me through all of that.

      It’s all about control and manipulation…religion…government…They still have their institutions and practices, which hurt people…yet inexplicably get celebrated as pinnacles of human culture.

      Meanwhile…they are into, literally, every aspect of your life…private and public…judging and punishing you, for being unique.

      It’s all about taking away from the individual, forcing them to be part of the hive…and severely punishing them, when they refuse to be…even while the hive has some extremely screwed up views, ethics and practices.

      After living this many years…I have lost nearly all faith in the integrity of human institutions, and human rules.

      They really just boil down to primal, animal fears, of what is different…and we always seem to have zealots running these institutions, making up these rules…These zealots are never actually interested in understanding those who are different…they just want to attack and destroy, keeping us at perpetual war with each other.
