Welcome

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.


I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

Are you smarter than an atheist? A religious quiz

Are you smarter than an atheist? A religious quiz

Apparently atheists and agnostics got an overall highest average number of these questiones correct(20.9) while Jews and Mormons came closely behind with Protestants and Catholics sadly behind. Overall the average American got 16 questions right. This is quite shameful any way you look at it. Atheist/Agnostics with their 20.9 right is still only 65% correct and then it goes downhill from there.

I took the test. I am Canadian and Roman Catholic. My score was 28 correct answers or 88%. There were some US Constitution questions that tripped me up, so I don't feel bad about getting those wrong. Take the test. Do you fit in with the average person of your religious creed? Whether you are evangelizing or not, it is important to know the basics of other world religions.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I thought the questions were pretty basic and am saddened by such poor results. I think I'm going to have my kids take the test!

  2. I saw a piece about this on the news last night. I found it sad that people didn't know the first book in the Bible and some other pretty basic questions. Now some of the questions are harder if you haven't had a grounding in world religions.

    I got 29 right, but I went to a Christian university and actually have a minor in Bible. LOL

  3. I got 29. As a fellow Canadian the US Constitution questions tripped me up a little too.
