I did this test a long time ago and I forgot my results. Now I did it again. My results are
Non theism aka. Secular humanism. This sums me up perfect!

I'm not really sure what to make of this, but according to my results I'm mostly Buddhist. I'm least like a Jehovah's Witness.

I had fairly similar results. Taoism, was my third. I don't really know much about any of these religions however.

You guys should do a search on wikipedia.

I checked the basic summaries listed on the site. Apparently I've reached the same general conclusions contained in Buddhism and Taoism, without the specifics (8-fold path, etc.) or "official" dogma. I'm not a joiner of organized anything, but I can see Buddhism or Taoism would be a very natural fit for me. This test would actually be very useful to, say, an unaffiliated Christian who wasn't sure what denomination to join (there are so many).

Thanks RR, good thread!

I seem to remember doing a similar test to this one not too long ago.

Anyway, I had a go at this one, but I've had to stop. There were some questions that just didn't provide me with an option that I agreed with.

I don't know how I got through the other test


Bah! That was the wrong test. Here are my results:

1. Neo-Pagan (100%)
2. Theravada Buddhism (99%)
3. Mahayana Buddhism (98%)
4. New Age (95%)

Hey we should get together. I have no idea what that type of Buddhism is either - but got the same score as you.

And Catholic was the bottom.

Yeah, this test says that I am 100% liberal protestant and 85% Quaker.

Considering that most people who know me would jokingly say that they wouldn't want to be around if I were to walk into a Church, for fear of lightning strikes or spontaneous combustion occuring, I'm prone to taking the veracity of said test with a grain of salt.

By "grain of salt" I am actually meaning something about the size of the Bonneville salt flats, or maybe the Great Salt Lake...

Wait, I have to take that back because Mormon was high on my list as well.

Now I'm off to figure out how a person who scored 23% on a purity test a few weeks ago could possibly come up as 85% Quaker now.

Although... my results do clear up a lot of my confusion over televangelists...

Secular humanist, not a surprise at all there.

Though I don't think you need one of these tests to tell you what you are, it's nice to see which of the other religions you're closer to.

1. Orthodox Quaker (100%)
2. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (96%)

4. Seventh Day Adventist (83%)
5. Eastern Orthodox (81%)


I've taken this a number of times over the years, and I've always been a little suspect of their calculations, as I always come up with "Orthodox Quaker", though even their own description of Quakers is contrary to choices that I make in the quiz.

My guess is that my pacifism and tolerance of homosexuality skews the results so that all the stuff I don't see their way (creation, judgement, etc) gets lost. I know that you can tweak the quiz with "how important is this" settings, but I'm too lazy to do that, so I just leave it "medium" for every question ;-)

My top two results were nontheism and Secular Humanism. That's deceptively narrow, though nuance can't be reasonably expected from a simple test. The results are slightly skewed by the fact that "Does not exist." is grouped as a single answer with "Do not know." and "Does not matter.", essentially putting all of the (many) variations of atheism into one basket. I'm an atheist, and actually quite interested in certain spiritual ideas, e.g. Buddhism, which I would be more inclined toward than, say, Secular Humanism. But the test read me more as a rejector of spirituality, a rigid materialist. Just a little flaw for those who fall into the nontheist/atheist camp.
