Interesting.

I figured it would top out pagan.

100% sikh

93% pagan.

hmm.

This is going on what questions were asked only. Nothing really Goddess oriented. Not much in the questions dealing with the Femine aspect or Duality of godhead. Seemed very patrifocal in nature.

Oh well. it was fun. thanks for the post.


Edit.

Just looked into sikhism more indepth. This should have been negated as I dont believe that "god/goddess" has ever made actual physical manifestation.

Higher evolved souls? Yeah. Souls that resonated with the Infinite? Yeah.

Thoth/Hermes, Cernunos,Jesus.

Isis, Cerridwin, Mary .

(vary by pantheon).

these maybe better described as "architypical" souls though.

Sun worship? Not at its core.

Catholicism would be more in line with "pagan" Goddess worship. The kicker is that they have turned Mother Mary into a sterile/ sempering woman that whines to her son for help.

Mary is ANYTHING BUT THAT!

Note that many of the ancient cathedrals are built on sites that were once sacred to the goddess.

Chartres for instance.

There seems to be high percentage of unitarians,neo -pagans, Buddhists, and secular humanists.
I'm kind of surprised with the amount evangalism that seems to circulate on a lot of the pages.
Maybe the conservative Christians and born again types are avoiding the quiz because they are afraid of the results
or they are already set in their beliefs.
Anyway I'm really glad to see the results and high statistics of nontraditional belief.

Thought pretty much the same, few pages earlier. It seems to me like the fundies are just making the most noise. But they're not perhaps that many?

Basically there are so many Unitarian Universalists, Secular Humanists, various Buddhist and other rather "sane" philosophies ranking high, that I have to think that it must actually be the loudest minority which makes the most noise on ATS about "Gods", "spirits" and such like entities.. I think that it is a good thing (to have so many secular people here)


Somehow I was under impression that there could be more fanatic religious people here, yet of course we have to reckon that propably not all of believers took the quiz - and if they took, they didn't want to publish their results.

This suggests, that the weakest has to make the most noise in order to appear stronger... Or does it? I dunno

They'll never take a quiz like this. They're sure already, y'see.

Besides, what if they did take it and it turned out they were secretly one of the types they hated.


Actually, I believe it has happened once in the thread already. Naming no names...

Nailed it for me - exactly what i am. Just didnt know it had a definition


• Belief in Deity Not considered important. Most Humanists are atheists or agnostics. • Incarnations Same as above. • Origin of Universe and Life The scientific method is most respected as the means for revealing the mysteries of the origins of the universe and life. • After Death An afterlife or spiritual existence after death is not recognized. • Why Evil? No concept of “evil.” Reasons for wrongdoing are explored through scientific methods, e.g. through study of sociology, psychology, criminology. • Salvation No concept of afterlife or spiritual liberation or salvation. Realizing ones personal potential and working for the betterment of humanity through ethical consciousness and social works are considered paramount, but from a naturalistic rather than supernatural standpoint. • Undeserved Suffering No spiritual reasons but rather a matter of human vulnerability to misfortune, illness, and victimization. • Contemporary Issues The American Humanist Association endorses elective abortion. Other contemporary views include working for equality for homosexuals, gender equality, a secular approach to divorce and remarriage, working to end poverty, promoting peace and nonviolence, and environmental protection.

I'm convinced that a great deal of evangelical types, had they taken this quiz, would have had Islam in their top ten results. Islam really isn't much different from Protestant Christianity when you compare the general beliefs - - but don't tell that to the fundies, they do not appreciate being compared to the hated enemy.

Yeah, propably they won't. But if they would, maybe they would just go on denial - isn't it after all very familiar activity for them?

I expected that Scientology would end up very close to Theravada Buddhism on my list. Scientology claims to be non dualistic and their teaching methods appear somewhat similar. Removing negative engrams through a process of becoming "clear" sounds so much like the Buddhist practices designed to free oneself from binding defilements and see ones true nature. Apparently I do not understand Scientology.
