| Very interesting quiz. I don't think it went nearly deep enough, but interesting nonetheless. Maybe should be used as a "litmus test" when interviewing prospective ministers for your congregation?
Me (no big secret here):
1. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (100%)
2. Orthodox Quaker (97%)
3. Seventh Day Adventist (84%)
4. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (81%)
5. Eastern Orthodox (70%)
23. Sikhism (32%)
24. Taoism (31%)
25. Secular Humanism (29%)
26. Scientology (29%)
27. New Thought (28%)
I thought it is interesting to see when each of us hit a "drop-off", say at the 75% area, or when did each of us lose commonality with the other faiths. I hit the 75% drop-off at #5, Irish Stepper at #7, VetteGal at #9, and MacEoghainn at #3. It could be argued that some here are very "narrow minded", but I like to think of it rather as a "strong, defined faith" (a good thing), assuming (of course) that this quiz is in any way accurate or simply merely entertaining.
It would be very interesting to take this quiz once every 10 years throughout your life and then compare the various results to see how you "evolved" over your life and your life's experiences: "Back in high school I was an X, when I got married I was a Y, and now at retirement I am a Z."

Yes, I agree, that would be interesting :-)
Also, I think it is interesting how "Mainline to Liberal Christain Prostetant" percentages come out so close to the top within a variety of combinations that include many I wouldn't think were very closely related to "Mainline Christainism"... ie...
Neo Paganism, Secular Humanism, Orthodox Quaker, Baha'i faith, Sikhism,
