      Are you smarter than an atheist? A religious quiz

      Atheists and agnostics, Jews and Mormons are among the highest-scoring groups in a 32-question survey of religious knowledge by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. On average, Americans got 16 of the 32 questions correct. Atheists and agnostics got an average of 20.9 correct answers. Jews (20.5) and Mormons (20.3). Protestants got 16 correct answers on average, while Catholics got 14.7 questions right.

      How will you do on the quiz?

        No, Edgar. "The fundamental level" must be Das Ding An Sich.
        We cannot know anything about Das Ding An Sich. See Kant, GRT, and QM.

        "The appearance of physicality" What is that?
        " ... interpretation of this computational structure ..." What is that?
        "... simulations of reality ..." What is that?

        And what is reality?

        Hello Edgar, the following rhetorical product is far too foggy:

        "That is how both the data information and the code information can be part of the same actual structure of the universe. The appearance of physicality is the interpretation of this computational structure by the minds of observers in their simulations of reality."

        Best,
