We spend a lot of time in my current grad class talking about religion in education. Tonight, a student inquired what holiday’s were celebrated by atheists and was somewhat interested when I told her that we celebrate them all. I further observed that in my experience, the typical atheist that I hang around with knows more than the typical religious person of any particular stripe.
As if to prove my contention, a student from the class posted a link to the following Pew survey on Religious Knowledge, as given to the general American Public.
14 out of 15 right (PS- Go fuck yourself, Jonathan Edwards).
