So...what Are You Anyway?

Although at first glance this appears to be telling you what religion you share beliefs with, you can easily find out what kind of non-religion you share beliefs with by choosing "no god" or "not applicable" for most of the questions:

I happen relate closest to Secular Humanism and furthest from Jehovah's Witnesses.

1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)

2. Secular Humanism (95%)

3. Theravada Buddhism (84%)

4. Liberal Quakers (82%)

 

I'm surprised to see anything with "Quaker" in their title coming out so closely related to Universalism and Humanism. It was 4th on mine too, but only got about 48% or something like that for me. Anyone know who/what/where Liberal Quakers are? I've never even heard of them before.

 

Buddhism I'm not so surprised about ranking high with us, but I'm not very familiar with it either. I'm interested to learn about it (now that it's not taboo to learn things).

I think Select Smart's quiz is biased toward Unitarians. I used to get that all the time when I did it, even when I was still going to church.

I used to attend liberal quaker meetings and enjoyed it immensely. They have no creed or dogma and accept anyone for who they are and where they are at. At the meeting I attended, there were Buddhists, Muslims, Atheists, Jews, and yes even Christians. They are big into simple living (almost to a fault IMHO) and are extremists when it comes to non-violence. They are also big into pushing for social change for, as they view it, the betterment of mankind.

Nah, that just probably means you were relaxed in your theology. I just went through with what I remember my old beliefs to be and UU was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay at the bottom which is quite a change from today...

My late Grandfather knew a good few Quakers... they were among the bravest men he knew... they were stretcher bearers and ambulance drivers.

 

They were also in the relief teams that took over the care of concentration camps.

Just for laughs and grins, I supplied three sets of answers: 1) my answers, 2) the answers I was indoctrinated with--what I believed my family/majority of my church would have given, 3) that answers that by my best estimation I would have given if I had taken the test when I was a xian.

 

My answers:

1. Secular Humanism (100%)

2. Unitarian Universalism (91%)

21. Mainline - Conservative Christian Protestant (14%)

26. Roman Catholic (10%)

27. Jehovah's Witness (6%)

 

Answers of family/church/what I was taught:

1. Mainline - Conservative Christian Protestant (100%)

3. Roman Catholic (89%)

26. Secular Humanism (8%)

 

Best estimate of my answers when I was xian:

1. Mainline - Conservative Christian Protestant (100%)

3. Roman Catholic (98%)

25. Secular Humanism (19%)

27. Non-theist (14%)

 

Interesting.

Secular Humanist 100% or Unitarian Universalist 99%

 

First time on the beliefnet quiz I did not score UU #1.

 

Works for me, since my wife was just installed last night at the annual meeting onto the board of governors at our local UU church.

(I used to do this quiz before I turned atheist (but still ex-christian) - Unitarian Universalist used to come out top and Liberal Quaker and Theravada Buddhism were second and third)

For some reason, it won't copy my results. Non-theist 100%.

 

I've done this before. Last time I agonized over every question. This time I just went through and clicked all the least religious ones I could find and clicked "high priority." I just wanted to come out as totally atheist.

Funny, I put low, or of no importance on almost all of them. So much anymore I just don't care.
