Pop-cultural osmosis is a situation in which many people "know" of something only from ways in which that thing is represented, misrepresented, referred to, or parodied in popular culture. The Bible is particularly subject to pop-cultural osmosis, since so few people professing to be Christians have read it. Other works subject to pop-cultural osmosis include Frankenstein. The term is a metaphor for the physical process of osmosis.
