Well, Ange took the quiz, but I forgot to copy the results before I closed the window. sad.gif Anyway, she was 100% Neo-Pagan and 96% Unitarian Universalism. And that's as far down the list as I can remember. wink.gif

Boy, it's nice to know that I'm not alone. tongue.gif MacEoghainn's first five are the same as mine! But then, I don't know that we all agree with the results...

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? biggrin.gif

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."

According to this, I am a Neo-Pagan. However I have it on good authority that I am a Buddhist. Go figure. This is what happens when they lump all mahayana buddhists into one catagory. biggrin.gif

3. New Age (92%)
4. Liberal Quakers (82%)

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,

Like Shadows I took this test about two years ago. This was in the early beginning of my spiritual journey. I now was interested to see if the changes which had taken place in the meantime were reflected by this new attempt on the test. And amazingly (or not) it exactly shows the developpment I made since. It shows where I found my home. smile.gif

Heh heh. That's about right. How intertsting to have Bahai in the top 10. I don't quite get #2 -- that seems to be a fly on the wall default kind of thing . smile.gif But definitely the mix of pagan, quaker and humanist says it all.
