It's easy to get a perfect score when you wrote the questions, Toad. I only got two wrong: the one about which book of the Bible says a woman's body is more important than the baby inside and what is the meaning of I.D. I thought that was a joke, so I answered as a joke.

Oh well. score: 80

Grant said...

I scored perfect as well. I'm so fucking pious.

Grant said...

Try this quiz as well. It's kind of the flip side of the one you posted. I found it through Dani's site, so you know it must be good. I only got a 90 on this one, so I guess I'm less pious than I thought, goddamnit.

Grant:

That was what gave me the idea for this one. The problem with hers was that a lot of those questions were not related to the Bible.

NewsBlog 5000 said...

I noticed that. I thought myabe she had a different bible.

NewsBlog 5000 said...

Only 7 of 10.

It was aliens man. I know it in my soul.

And now that we have grown fat, they are going to eat us.

Two Minutes J said...

I got 5 out of 10. And yes, intelligent design DOES mean that we were created by aliens. Colonel Sanders ain't got shit on me, dats Mr. Sanders if yo nasty!

Boiled Owl said...

I missed the Noah getting drunk one. Got a 90.

Boiled Owl said...

But Toad I was just guessing on that Exodus thing, tell me how Ex 21: 22-25 prioritises the womans life over her childs?

Dani said...

I only got a 80 so I'm not as pious as you think I am, Grant. Of course some were merely a matter of opinion and I would have gotten them right if they were Biblical. Oh well - I threw a few questions in mine too that weren't specifically in the bible but they had moral relevance to biblical truth!

For the record, God does change his mind several times all throughout the Bible and dinosaurs were on the ark.

These quizzes are fun. You should take my other one about who I am...you might be surprised by the answers. Go here to => Take quiz about Dani.

Hope you don't mind Toad?

BRUISER said...

The bible like Dianetics ....are both a work of fiction....

Toad734 said...

Owl:

It's in Exodus where Jewish law is basically being handed down. In the Old Testament (AKA Torah), eye for an eye is pretty much the law of the land. In this law, if you kill someone your life will be taken as well. If you kill a pregnant woman you will be killed but if you injure a pregnant woman and she miscarries, you are not put to death but merely have to pay a fine to be decided by the husband.

The first 5 books of the Bible are clearly about Jewish law and Jewish history, but in the Talmud it goes into more detail about the status of the fetus and it's standing as it pertains to the mother. The Talmud however goes into a little more detail and goes so far as to stay that if a woman will be injured or even mentally distressed by a pregnancy then the woman’s health and mental health come first and the pregnancy can be terminated. This also applies to situations when the baby will be born ill or retarded, which would clearly cause mental and financial distress for the mother. Basically the Jews and their God in the first 5 books of the Bible treat a fetus as any other appendage; if you have gangrene in your foot you are allowed to cut it off before it affects your entire body.

Bruiser:

The Bible however does contain some historical facts, and some decent life lessons. Most of it is vague and therefore useless when trying to prove anything but Dianetics is all bullshit.

Toad734 said...

Dani:

Are you sure that the all perfect God kept changing his mind or was it that the 100 or so different authors of the Bible decided they didn't like what the previous one had to say?

If God did change his mind then he is clearly not perfect and this is your first step into realizing that the Bible is just a book, written by a bunch of people as a means of control, and is full of a lot of stories that are not to be confused with divine history.

Either way you shouldn't take it too serious. It's like realizing why evolution makes more sense than creationism; If God intelligently designed every animal, and Darwin’s survival of the fittest theory is wrong, then why do any species ever go extinct? Doesn't sound like very intelligent design to me if an entire species dies out because the one source of leaves it eats gets depleted.

That would really be unintelligent design wouldn't it?

trick said...

I got a 50 just guessing. I guess half of me will go to heaven and half to hell.

Dani said...

Just a few examples of God changing his mind:

- There was no death penalty until after the flood.
- Once you couldn't eat meat, then you could, then you couldn't, then you could.
- We were once under the Law, now we are under grace.

"We" meaning Christians. You are still under the law Toad!

Mike V. said...

dammit! a 60!

Toad734 said...

Ok Dani, I know there are inconsistencies; What does that mean though? You didn't vote for Kerry because he was inconsistent and kept flip flopping yet you worship a guy who does exactly that.

Dani said...

Toad -
I didn't vote for Bush or Kerry because they are both dirty scoundrels and neither of them are comparable to God.

When God changes His mind, it doesn’t mean that He isn’t perfect, all it means is that God is a living God and He has the power to change the rules if He wants to. BTW – there are only about 40 authors of the Bible.

Don’t even get me started on Darwin and his weak ass theory of evolution – I will rip you to shreds on that one!

Toad734 said...

I have several posts already up; have at it.

Ryan said...

I didn't take the bible quiz, but I think Dani is sitting on a Golden Egg. I had heard that Christians explain discrepancies about the history of the Earth and the biblical account by saying that dinosaurs were on the arc, but thats just too prescious.

Dani, you should really be the one to capitalize on this idea and go to the Hollywood studios with it.

I can see it now, a prequel to the 3 Jurassic Park movies that could build an empire like the Star Wars films. "Jurassic Arc: The Day We Saved the Beasts". You could get Mel Gibson to be the Drunken Noah, and Kirk Cameron could be one of the young guys he bedded with.

The dinosaurs were kept in cages and everyone thought they would hold, but inevitably life finds a way out and the dinosaurs run amuck on the other animals of the arc. Maybe you could tie this into an explanation of the extinction, that Noah (Mel) eventually defeats the dinosaurs with the power of Christ compelling them into the sea.

This golden egg is a gift from god and shouldn't be wasted, Dani. If you don't do it then maybe someone else will...

Boiled Owl said...

On Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update", they were giving poll results on GWB's approval rating. They said "63% of the country think the President is doing a poor job, the other 37% think Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to church on Sundays." Harsh, perhaps, but still pretty funny.

Toad734 said...

and very accurate

BRUISER said...

I am now a certified Jesus Warrior!!!!!
Thanks for the quiz.


Wait, wait, wait....Man never rode dinosaurs...fucking shit christ !!!


All hail satan and we'll be flying dragons in no time!!!

The Goddess said...

Hey Toadusmaximus, I got a 100!! I did on Dani's quiz too... I am so on the cusp of greatness, I just can't seem to commit... :(
whahnt-whah...

Mike V. said...

There's nothing for you to rip, Dani.
Evolution is being observered right now.

Evolution wasn't invented by Darwin any more than gravity was invented by Sir Issac Newton.
What Darwin did was try to explain evolution.

By the way, when are we going to start teaching biblical math and physics?

Toad734 said...

According to the Bible the Sun revolves around the Earth and a person eaten by a whale can survive.

Mike V. said...

All you have to do is play a song on the whale ribs, and you will get out.
Duh.

Da Katz & Reni said...

That was funny, but i disagreed with two questions and answered one right even though I disagreed with the answer...

I took psychology -- testings and measurements and all that -- I could have gotten a hundred if i wanted to... more fun to be different.

Everyone is entitled to his own opinion but not his own facts.
