  1. 87%. The questions from the Tanakh (Old Testament) were ridiculously easy. Even some of the Christian ones were.

    Knowing the basics can really come in handy. In my old rugby club of fond memory, expressions of racial and religious bigotry were used to show friendship and accwptance. For example, we minorities were generally known by our ethnicity and a distinguishing number (Kneegrow 1, Kneegrow 2, Semite 1, Semite 2, and so on). Anyway, at the beginning of every spring season, we Joos would have to go throught the usual You Killed Our Savior routine, to which we responded with whatever came to mind, e.g., “Well, yeah, sorry, it was just one of those parties that got out of hand,” and so on. One year it was, “Roger, next Sunday is Easter; you know what Easter is, don’t you?” I answered, “Yeah, that’s when you dug up your God and ate Him!”

    Some will find this offensive. I think that the Holy One, blessed be He, doesn’t disapprove, because He knows what lies behind it.

  3. **hangs head in shame** Only 98%

    I went back and took it a second time, this time google-ing the questions I knew I guessed on to see how many I missed. The questions must all be weighted differently because I missed 4 or 5 of them.

  4. I only got 95% what the freakin heck?! I know I’m going straight to hell now!

    OK you 100% folk: There was a question for which they didn’t have the right answer in the quiz. Let see how you do with it. The Flood was not 40 days and nights as you amost always hear. What was the 40 days and nights referring to and for extra credit (now don’t look it up) how long was the Flood really?

  5. I got 100% too, though a few of them were kind of hard and I had to answer by process of elimination rather than actually knowing the right answer. Maybe it’s possible to get a few wrong and still get 100%?

    Scotty, the 40 days and nights was how long it rained. I *think* the flood lasted a year.

  8. 40 days & nights of rain
    150 till the water receded some and ark bumped into mtn.
    221 days till the mountain tops were seen
    261 days till Noah sent out raven and dove
    268 days second dove brought back olive leaf
    275 days the third bird out didn’t come back
    308 days and the standing water was gone
    365 days and the earth was dried up and they left ark. I guess between 308 and 365 it was too muddy to get out of the ark.

    the Jewish calendar year is variable but it usually 354 days so they were in the ark 1 year and 10 days (2nd month 17th day to the next years 2nd month 27th day).

    So there are the dates now you decide how long the flood was.

  9. I’m going to plead the fifth on this one.
