I found a fascinating site w/ a quiz on religion...

http://beliefnet.com/story/76/story_7665_1.html

My Results

The top score on the list below represents the faith that Belief-O-Matic, in its less than infinite wisdom, thinks most closely matches your beliefs. However, even a score of 100% does not mean that your views are all shared by this faith, or vice versa.

Belief-O-Matic then lists another 26 faiths in order of how much they have in common with your professed beliefs. The higher a faith appears on this list, the more closely it aligns with your thinking.

How did the Belief-O-Matic do? Discuss your results on our message boards.

Here are my results.

The quiz (20 questions, BTW) doesn't seem to allow for separation of church and state. I can't easily answer a yes-no question on whether abortion or homosexuality should be tolerated or divorce should be restricted because my personal/religious views are at variance with what I think the law should be for those who don't share my particular faith.

Cindy -- who never understood why it makes any difference whether God is three distinct entities or one blended entity of three, and who figures out she'll learn the answer soon enough

Cindy - The questions around those things seemed to me to be more along the lines of what your church or belief structure would condone/not condone and I didn't translate that as what should be legislated. There were some questions where I really didn't see my answer but just tried to pick something somewhat close and then gave it a lower priority, ah well just another quiz.

Here are my results:

I dont currently practice any religion. Grew up in the ways of Jehova's Witness for a while. They do a lot of preaching. I attended a Roman Catholic High School, but that didnt do much for me. On the contrary, I felt left out at their religious services and didnt much like going to religion class.

I dont like the description of the Unitarian Universalism folks, sounds too "one-size-fits-all." There's no hope for me, is there?

I can't see how I got "100%" for Christian when I said there were no human incarnations of God.

Oddly enough I think this is about right-- actually dead on target for the top 3. I would have thought that Christian Science would have rated a in the first 10 though and I am a bit surprised to see Orthodox Quaker in the top 5.

I found fault with the wording of quite a few of the questions, and I had problems with determining how they defined certain words. There were several times that if I defined a word the way I thought it should be, I could answer one way, but there were other definitions that would have made me answer completely opposite. Anyway, here are my results.

2. Roman Catholic (99%)
3. Orthodox Quaker (99%)
4. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (96%)

I guess it was pretty accurate. Mine was

1. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (100%)

This would be the closest category as I consider myself an Evangelical Christian.

Well, they got #1 right on the money, and I can accept #2 and #3 as possibles, but neo-pagan, Christian Science, and Scientology couldn't be farther from my personal beliefs. Very amusing. smile

Okay, that's very anecdotic but I first thought (when I read it) that these Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints were "morons".

Best thing is, you can also use this test to see how well you understand the tenets of other faiths. For example, I took the test again to see how well I could summarize Catholic, Mainline Protestant, LDS, Islam and a few others. I am quite happy to note that I nailed every one of them! :p

Not totally surprised, but a little foggy on some of the wording of questions. Also the top answer - in the "what they believe" page - seemed so wishy-washy and non-concrete. How can it be a "faith" if it has so many different incarnations? Certain things in there are much easier to understand because they have definite definitions - but "very diverse beliefs", "diverse opinions", and "differences of faith" and yadayadayada don't tell me anything about MY spirituality. Fun test, though.

I wasn't too surprised, 1 was my background, 3 is my present association, am aware of 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 12, 15 and even 26 as influential on my outlook. Not really sure what Quakerism is like (can't imagine the difference between an Orthodox or Liberal one), but since I am not a pacifist, it would be kinda hard for me to be a Quaker or a Buddhist. Surprised to see Islam so high, but Mormons beat them out. Scientology should be right down there with Secular Humanism.
