According to the U.S. Religious Knowledge Survey, if you want to discuss God, you might want to do so with an atheist. Reportedly, nonbelievers know more, on average, about most religions than most faithful about their own. In terms of knowledge, Jews and Mormons ranked just below agnostics and atheists.
The study discovered that a majority of Protestants didn't know Martin Luther was the force behind the Protestant Reformation; meanwhile, Catholics think the blood and wafer used in Holy Communion are intended to merely symbolize the body and blood of Christ, not actually become them.
Alan Cooperman, associate director for research at the Pew Forum, says that atheists and agnostics tend to be people who grew up in a religious tradition and consciously gave it up, often after a great deal of reflection and study.
