How consistent is your view of religion?

In case you want to find out, here is a 17-question quiz:
In this activity you’ll be asked a series of 17 questions about God and religion. In each case, apart from Question 1, you need to answer True or False. The aim of the activity is not to judge whether these answers are correct or not. Our battleground is that of rational consistency. This means to get across without taking any hits, you’ll need to answer in a way which is rationally consistent. What this means is you need to avoid choosing answers which contradict each other. If you answer in a way which is rationally consistent but which has strange or unpalatable implications, you’ll be forced to bite a bullet.
I managed to get through without taking any hits or biting any bullets.

"Congratulations! You have made it to the end of this activity.

You took zero direct hits and you bit zero bullets."

I'm gonna pinch this to show Chuck and Andy.
