made it to question #10 got bored and quit. what a load of BS (how much do you know about the bible) I guessed at every answer. Not gonna do the other one, the first one enough, I guess I don't have the patience.

The Bible is a book of mythology and the First Amendment of the U.S Constitution is also a myth. America is primarily a Christian nation and there no getting away from it!

Ok...Just thought it'd be a fun quiz to bring us together. And knowing the Bible, like other tales, gives "fire power" when under attack from proselytizing. It also helped me to raise my children with more knowledge to make their own decisions growing up.

And I'm not sure what you mean by the first amendment being a myth. Please elaborate.

@ashortbeauty The First Amendment states that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . ." However, in America, even our money has "In God We Trust" and the Senate opens its sessions each year with a prayer from a Christian preacher. The majority of Americans are Christian and therefore have an immense amount of power. The U.S. is supposed to be a totally secular state, but the reality is that it is a Christian state. Several of our most prominent Founding Fathers were not Christians, but were Deists, who believed that a force (god?) created the world and then disappeared to leave our planet on its own. I respect you raising your children "with more knowledge to make their own decisions growing up." And yes, if the Bible is looked at metaphorically and not literally, it can be useful. On the other hand, The Old Testament is full of horrific violence condoned by a jealous god. The New Testament is in no way an historical document, as some would like us to believe. Thanks for responding to my reply to your post "ashortbeauty." I appreciate chatting with you.

@ashley44 I taught it as mythology right along side of Zeus. Age appropriate of course. Thank you for answering my question. But all of this was from the FFRF as a talking point. But you came across as on edge. That was not my intent.

@ashortbeauty I don't think you came across as "on edge." You were just chatting with the people on the site. Take care and have a good evening.

30/16 so so, but better than most. I did change a couple of answers that I would have had right.

I've read the book as well as others and have a little insight on it.
I believe the idea behind the separation between church and state was so the church as it were in England and most Catholic countries could not assume power over the state.
