I wouldn't say Brian was abducted. He just happened to fall into their spaceship.

Hi Zwerth66. You are on my favourite subject here. I did get them all correct at the first attempt but I struggled to get the wording right for the stoning question. In fact the reason is simply 'blasphemy'. The detail of it is only revealed by Matthias, the son of Deuteronomy of Gath, who states he has been sentenced for telling his wife that "that piece of Halibut was good enough for Jehovah"). Just a suggestion, but maybe allow key words like 'blasphemy' and 'Jehovah'? Great quiz, loved it, and I may be borrowing some of your questions for an informal quiz of my own... :) NOMINATED
