If the quiz had been all Christian then the questions would have been things such as:

1) The one true Lord of the Universe is;

A) God the father
B) God the son (Jesus)
C) God the Holy Ghost
D) All of the above

I got everything right except for one question...something about whether the fortunes found in cookies are more representative of Tao or Buddha or something like that.

Do I win anything?

I got 100%, although I am a high school social studies teacher. Still, score one for the atheists.

I got 100% basically because I have a memory for trivia. The one tricky one for me was which Christians have traditionally held that faith alone is what brings you salvation; I was right, but it was pretty much a guess. As for when the Jewish sabbath begins, even if you aren't a Jew, if you ever had observant Jewish friends you'd know that. Oh, and the majority religion of Indonesia might be a surprise to some people.

100%,

Had to make an educated guess on First Great Awakening because I forgot the exact name from High School History, but thankfully what sounded oldest and more famous was correct;

I learned about the intricacies of the Jewish Sabbath from the Gallup religions quiz. (so I guess that was the only misnomer, as in Gallup I was off on the start of it.)
