Got many of these by remembering the song Turn! Turn! Turn written by Pete Seeger, although the cover by The Byrds that I am most familiar with has a few changes from the Bible verses.

I had no idea what this was before I clicked on it, but then I realized, "Oh hey! It's that song!" Still didn't do very well, though.

You're missing "and a time to dance". Otherwise, terrific quiz!

A time to kill. Yup that seems like good morals! No wonder we have so many wars, when all religions are in favor of killing each other...

Ecclesiastes was written 2,500 years ago. At that time, saying that there's a time for war and a time for peace (instead of just only war) was surely a progressive and mind-breaking statement.
Most religions are explicitly in favour of peace and condemn murder. The fact that their people do not obey their teachings is not the fault of the religions.

Killing has always been a part of humanity since Day 1, whether it has been of religious reasons or not. Maybe this part of Ecclesiastes was just describing some realities of life rather than ideals.

With 50% of people getting 4 correct answers I don't think it's as well know as you think it is.

Anybody who doesn't get at least one correct answer on this quiz really needs to sit down and think about their approach to quiz-taking.
