I have been a memebr of beliefnet for about 4 years now(albeit in a constant one over the past 2) and this is a "quiz" that gives you the religions/spiritual beleifs your ideas most closely resemble. Sometimes the results are predictable..sometimes they aren't. I have had many friends surprised at the outcome.
I am posting the here because I didnt think it belonged in general and may spur some conversations.

They cant give all of the answers to all fo the questions so , sometimes, you have to pick the one that most closesly resembles yours.
enjoy

I wll post my results as well.

I define my beliefs as being liberal Protestant, but follow no denomination. Suzieq, interesting how your 92% Conservative Protestant got above the 100% Orthodox Quaker. There wasn't any editing going on was there? wink.gif

Your Results:
The top score on the list below represents the faith that Belief-O-Matic, in its less than infinite wisdom, thinks most closely matches your beliefs. However, even a score of 100% does not mean that your views are all shared by this faith, or vice versa.

Belief-O-Matic then lists another 26 faiths in order of how much they have in common with your professed beliefs. The higher a faith appears on this list, the more closely it aligns with your thinking.

How did the Belief-O-Matic do? Discuss your results on our message boards.
