Belief-O-Matic

Belief.net is hosting an online quiz called "Belief-O-Matic". Answer 20 questions about your views on God, salvation, the afterlife, etc., and they'll tell you which religions are most congenial to your beliefs. Here were my results:
1. Secular Humanism (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (94%)
3. Liberal Quakers (81%)
4. Nontheist (81%)
5. Theravada Buddhism (79%)
6. Neo-Pagan (75%)
7. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (73%)
8. Taoism (67%)
9. Reform Judaism (64%)
10. New Age (63%)
11. Mahayana Buddhism (50%)
12. Scientology (49%)
13. New Thought (47%)
14. Orthodox Quaker (46%)
15. Baha'i Faith (44%)
16. Sikhism (43%)
17. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (40%)
18. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (33%)
19. Jainism (30%)
20. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (26%)
21. Islam (24%)
22. Orthodox Judaism (24%)
23. Seventh Day Adventist (22%)
24. Eastern Orthodox (15%)
25. Roman Catholic (15%)
26. Hinduism (14%)
27. Jehovah's Witness (0%)
Well, I guess I'm not surprised to find that I'm a 100% secular humanist. I'm 64% Reform Jew, but only 22% Adventist. Ironically, I'm exactly equal parts Orthodox Jew and Muslim (24%). 0% Jehovah's Witness was not surprising, but 49% Scientologist?? Yikes!

This is a very interesting topic to me. I'm going to go and check this out and see how my views stack up. Everyone has a world view whether they know it or not. Knowing where people are coming from both philosophically and religiously is crucial to knowing who they truly are. Thanks for posting this!
