Do Christians Know More About Atheism Than Atheists?

Earlier this week, American Christians were stunned to hear that a survey from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life discovered that atheists know more about religion in general, and about Christianity in particular, than Christians do. However, most Americans didn’t stop to ask an obvious follow-up question: Is the reverse true? Do Christians know more about atheists than atheists themselves do?

The Pew survey had just one question about atheism – a bias in its approach, perhaps. That one question, however, shows that atheists know more about themselves than Christians do – with a 9 percent lead. When it comes to the relationship between atheists and Christianity, ignorance is not mutual.
