Why Do Christian Know So Little About The Bible And Their Religion?

My encounters and conversations with most Christians about the tenets, origins and history of their religion usually leaves me puzzled as to the abject ignorance within the Christian community of the bearest and basic information about their belief system. For instance, the majority of Christian know little or nothing about the following;

1-) The bible - its writers, composition, compilation

2-) The various church councils, eg Nicea

3-) The conversion of Emperor Constantine

4-) The Arian controversy

5-) The difference between the immaculate conception and the virgin birth

6-) The crusades

7-) The witchhunts

8-) For Catholics, the various papal sexual, financial and murderous scandals

That people could commit so much of their time and effort on a belief system and institution they have very little knowledge of is an indictment to the faculty of reason.

Why are the majority of Christians so bone-dry pig ignorant about their own religion?

U just finished smoking your pot.abi?, you are no longer part of the modern world. even scientists have faith, every human has it, you have faith you'll sleep tonight and wake up 2moro morning. it's as basic as that. i just see the blockheadedness in ur medula now. u aint worth talking with.

Faith is a very bad and unreliable epistemic device and the sooner it is no longer part of modern existence, the better. So it gives me great pleasure to attack this "great evil at the centre of the modern era"
