What you said may very well be true.

As long as people are satisfied with the results (as most seem to be) we have no reason to regard the quiz totally flawed. Yet it is just as you've mentioned, it overlooks some religions like the zoroasterism and some more peculiar philosophies. But then again, how complicated automated quiz can be made with reasonable effort?

I wish I knew more about religions to be able to say something more constructive about it, but as it happens I am, and have always been, somewhat secular individual I cannot really say nay or jay
In the end, while I recognize spiritual experiences, I think they have lot to do with culture, communities and psychological experiences. At least according to my own experiences. About others I really cannot say.

I quit Catholic school when I was in 2nd grade, go figure


I'm all for believing in what you want, so my beliefs have went from Catholic (raised as one at a young age) to agnostic, to atheist, to spiritualist (I don't assign myself to any specific religion, nor will I ever).

Just a thought....

Are you sure this quiz is not formulated to list Unitarian Universallist high on the list of everyone?

Maybe, this is their way of directing all those of little faith to come their way...???

Lol... answering a question here or there or not answering (N/A) on a question or two dramatically changes the test results, even though the questions being answered are very similar. 'meh... Interesting test but not one I'd base my Religious affiliations on... Also, how strange that so many people are getting UU at 100%... Guess that means everyone and anyone can play.

Yeah, but Catholicism is, ironically, quite polytheistic. Many rituals, worshiping saints and Mary etc. And I think, although not sure, that Eastern orthodox is about as close to Catholicism as one can get.

I find it funny that Jehovah Witness is either at the very bottom or at least in the bottom three of everyones results. I guess everyone is okay with blood transfusions then uh?

Why is that strange. Isn't UU basically the non-religion religion. (Edit: Never mind, I think you had a tongue firmly planted in your cheek.) I mean, you just have to believe in something spiritual or higher or something vague to that effect, and you are in. And of course these tests aren't quite valid. If only those in the APA would realize how useless their tests are as well. What does one expect from soft science? It all is bent to satisfy the worldview of the author. These tests are particularly invalid for those who are a bit deliberative. They are supposed to be based on knee-jerk responses, at least that is what I have been told many times. Multiple choice always produces crap for results, especially if you are dealing with somebody who is not a vegetable. Nobody's beliefs can be summed up in a few lines of text. Unless, of course, they "borrowed" their beliefs from somebody else.

The multiple choice questions are a terror - especially on something like this - I remember (many many years ago) getting stopped by the Scientology who (in a moment of weakness) talked me into taking one of their personality-type tests. Not only was the test something like 300 questions (yes, I was hating life once I got started) they were all so difficult to answer because so many of them didn't fall into an either-or category. Needless to say, once all the data went into the computer, my "results" showed specific areas that needed "improvement" to the tune of who knows how much money in Dianetics services!
In any case, I think these tests are entertaining, perhaps back you up on beliefs you know you hold, yadda yadda... For those looking, maybe give a push in a certain direction, but for the most part, harmless entertainment and nothing more.

That's a good view to have, seeing them as harmless entertainment. But those who see them as otherwise might be stuck in an unpleasant labyrinth for years. I have this acquaintance that follows horoscopes and the like. She studies the principles of the universe, etc. I asked her why she wanted so many princes telling her what to do, that she was not a farmhand for the Lord of the Cosmos. She laughed, but I don't know if it sunk in.

interesting comment..

But how on earth or for heaven's sake, can you tell someone they are NOT a farmhand for the Lord of the Cosmos, I don't quite get that part?

Methodists are cool though. I dated a psych nurse who was also a Methodist. She knew that I was not particularly a fan of organized religion. So I asked her what she believed. She said, I don't believe much of anything, we Methodists just like to eat cake together, BS, and have a sense of community. She was a trip though, would howl at the moon when she was drunk, etc. So I don't know if her views were representative.

Edit: Your parents must be interesting. Father's like, "I don't know or care about ultimate truth." Mother's like, "Don't worry, baby, I will put a spell on you." Daddy's like, "Bring it on." And then you came into the picture.
