The Evolution Theory Quiz


Say what you say! What is the Pastor doing now? hehehe...

It is simple really, I have always held to the belief that you reason things out and not just accept things because someone else said it was so. That is why I have little time for the atheist that just quotes from a Bible Contradictions book or for the Christian who just quotes "proofs" and "apologetics." To me, it seems reasonable that we examine the evidence and facts and then draw our conclusions (if any) from the results.

It is just as silly to me say "I am an atheist" as it is to say "I don't believe in evolution" or "I am a creationist" if you have never examined the evidence and then reasoned things out on your own. Now if, on the other hand, you can show that you do know whereof you speak by having a reasonable knowledge base on both sides of the argument then there should be, at a minimum, a respect for the position that you hold.

My main focus is the Bible which is no surprise to those who know me but I like to think I arrived at my conclusions honestly so I took a little ]Evolution Test just to see how honest I have been with myself. As might be expected I scored a decent number of correct answers but the test does show me that I do not fully understand the basic premises and proofs of evolution as much as I would like...You scored: 8 / 10
You scored 120 points.
The average score for this quiz: 6 / 10
Does this score say I made a reasoned and informed choice? How well do you know the subject you believe (or don't believe) in? Go ahead and try this ]Evolution Test and see where you are emoticon

Re: The Evolution Theory Quiz


8/10 too. I got wrong the same two questions that over 50% of people have.

I don't recall which two I missed but I do remember the two I missed were also missed by 46% of the people emoticon

Interesting. 7/10 - better than I thought I'd do. emoticon

Maybe I'm learning something from all the skeptics I hang around.

Re: The Evolution Theory Quiz



I got them all right but as I said in the other thread, I really don't want to play these games. I'm not interested in getting converts and I don't want to play games of one-upmanship with anyone over this subject.
Now if anyone wants to play one-upmanship games about movies, I'll play.

Re: The Evolution Theory Quiz


Right on Mo - we all believe what we do believe for different reasons and there's no need to prove anything to anyone else either way.

Re: The Evolution Theory Quiz


How would you do one on movies Mo? I am impressed that you got all of the questions correct since some of them are not very intuitive emoticon

Re: The Evolution Theory Quiz


I'm actually pretty good with movies but the quizzes on the web are all about obscure stuff.
Being hyperactive, I don't absorb every single detail of every movie I see. I have an overall knowledge of a vast array of movies but I can't give you precise answers to questions about what a character said to another character when they were in a specific location.
So no, I wouldn't do too well on those quizzes
