A little surprised at the neo-Pagan, but I suppose "revering nature and the environment" earned me points there. But to me the biggest surprise was Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (26%), because I know what they believe, and I know I didn't pick any of those beliefs. So why do I get 26% for them? A mystery.

That WAS a fun test, thanks for posting it RR.

I am a 100% quaker and least like a jew and I find that pretty funny.

Kind of funny that it came up with 99% for Seventh Day Adventist, which I am, though the only question I would think was specific to that religion is if you are unconscious between the time you die and your judgment.
That being said, I also got the 100% Orthodox Quaker thing, maybe because I do not think God has a body, which I think Adventists do, which I think is a little odd. They think God was strolling through the Garden of Eden, on a cool early evening, looking to physically see his friend Adam, and had to call out for him to come forward, after failing to be able to find him. Does that sound right to you? I guess it might, if you take Genesis even more literally that it is actually written.

Holy crap... LDS.


I'm a bit surprised at this result, to be honest. Admittedly, 2 of the questions (including the nature of God one) confused me with their wording. For the record, I was raised Assembly of God, converted to Roman Catholic, and am largely a lapsed Catholic but consider myself a fundametalist/traditionalist Catholic without a traditional church to attend in my region.

I think that the problem with this sort of test is that the percentages are misleading because we tend to have pretty strong views about what's acceptable or not. For example, an atheist should come up with 0% for any theistic belief system.

The fact that LDS and mainstream Christianity have, let's say, 95% commonality in doctrine doesn't matter if the remaining 5% is abject heresy for one side or the other (as is the case in that instance.) If the question "Do you believe that Joseph Smith received a new revelation from God?" results in a "no" from you, you cannot be a Mormon, regardless of what percentage you might have come up with on the test.

The interesting thing, I suppose, is that there is so much commonality between various faiths, though that isn't surprising. The differences aren't many, but they are great

Suprise, suprise, they said I was likely to be :


1. Eastern Orthodox (100%)
2. Roman Catholic (100%)
3. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (86%)
4. Seventh Day Adventist (83%)
5. Orthodox Quaker (81%)
6. Hinduism (55%)
7. Orthodox Judaism (53%)

Suprised Orthodox came up first although I do tend to be a Traditionalist Catholic. Maybe they put Catholicism 2nd because the Vatican II, Novus Ordo Catholic Church has become so liberal.


Then again it could just be alphabetical order and I'm reading too much into this...

After looking into all the other results, it seems the test doesn't know the difference between Catholicism and Eastern Orthodox, they all have EXACTLY the same percentage in everyone's tests. Maybe they need a question about the primacy of the Pope, that's about the main difference between the two.



I'm least likely to be:

21. Neo-Pagan (10%)
22. Scientology (10%)
23. New Age (8%)
24. New Thought (8%)
25. Nontheist (7%)
26. Secular Humanism (5%)
27. Taoism (0%)


Looks like I'm pretty much backwards from everyone else here.
