Atheists and agnostics, Jews and Mormons are among the highest-scoring groups on a new survey of religious knowledge, outperforming evangelical Protestants, mainline Protestants and Catholics on questions about the core teachings, history and leading figures of major world religions.
On average, Americans correctly answer 16 of the 32 religious knowledge questions on the survey by the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion & Public Life. Atheists and agnostics average 20.9 correct answers. Jews and Mormons do about as well, averaging 20.5 and 20.3 correct answers, respectively. Protestants as a whole average 16 correct answers; Catholics as a whole, 14.7. Atheists and agnostics, Jews and Mormons perform better than other groups on the survey even after controlling for differing levels of education.
3,412 Americans age 18 and older, on landlines and cell phones, in English and Spanish. Jews, Mormons and atheists/agnostics were oversampled to allow analysis of these relatively small groups

Science is not religion, and religion not science, and can't be viewed as such. Religion serves a purpose that science cannot.

So in your thinking you will have to go to the end of time to be prove wrong baout God. So everything that precieve as magical you will just say "well we will be able to prove what that is one day and move on? is that your mind set.
And someting has to be proven to exist for you in your terms that you can understand.
Maybe true inderstanding and enlightenment comes fromt he thinigs you can;t prove,. how bout that one.
