Show off! Ok but next time you have to take at least 5 seconds to laugh at Judas betraying Jesus with a high 5!

:)

It would be great if they let atheists on the show just because of how bad we would crush them. After winning the prize money say.. You know it's all a myth right? Lol

Re: the Bible quiz - it seems to have got the answer to number 9 wrong?..
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_Commandments
"thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's".

The quiz offered...
You shall have no other gods before me;
Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy;
You shall not murder;
You shall not give false testimony.

It might appear that those who got 17 out of 17 got one wrong,(though it was marked correct)?

Yes, I noted your post 12

but my criticism was a mistake. I mis-remembered the wording of the question which is sound enough.

There are more challenging bible challenges on the web but as nOgOd wrote, "An American Constitution/history quiz would be more educational ... than a buy-bull quiz." (Post 13).

Well we wouldn't see very many republicans do well on a show like that! Lol :)

I guess it's all about ratings.

Except, your average American knows even less about what's in the Constitution than they do about what's in the babble. One of the more dubious aspects of cable TV is that at any hour of the day or night, there's at least two or three channels of bible thumpers quoting from the book and asking for donations in exchange for some useless drek or for prayers for the financial well being of the suckers who send in cash.(They never seem to read from the passages about how it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to go to heaven on these 'prosperity gospel' shows. Otherwise, they would know that telling people 'god wants you to be wealthy' is equivalent to telling them 'god does not want you in heaven'.)

The only people who would do well on a Constitution/history quiz would be lawyers and immigrants who are studying to become citizens. If you can pass the citizenship test, you know about twice as much about the Constitution and US History as the average native-born citizen.
