On number #6, Think again! Light is not deflected by a magnetic field. Cosmic particles, yes - Ultraviolet Light, no.

On number #7, deflection of comets (and anything else, incoming) is just as legitimate as all the rest. Check out "What if the Moon Didn't Exist, by Neil Comins". (I wouldn't have picked any of your choices, but I had to pick something).

loved your quiz! Geology is one of my other favorite subjects. I just watch NOVA now and I remember the answer to that last question... 99% of species are extinct. It was about the Permian period and how they think there was a mass extinction- initially caused by the massive plumes of toxic gases released by numerous volcanoes in Asia.

Good quiz however, I disagree with #3 on how the Earth was was made by the hand of God. Good quiz otherwise. Thanks for making it.
