2. Neo-Pagan (84%)
3. Liberal Quakers (78%)
4. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (76%)
5. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (75%)
6. Theravada Buddhism (74%)
7. New Age (72%)
8. Mahayana Buddhism (71%)
9. New Thought (66%)
10. Secular Humanism (66%)
11. Taoism (65%)
12. Hinduism (64%)
13. Scientology (63%)
14. Sikhism (59%)
15. Bahá'í Faith (54%)
16. Jainism (48%)
17. Reform Judaism (48%)
18. Nontheist (42%)
19. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (42%)
20. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (31%)
21. Orthodox Quaker (28%)
22. Jehovah's Witness (22%)
23. Orthodox Judaism (20%)
24. Eastern Orthodox (17%)
25. Islam (17%)
26. Roman Catholic (17%)
27. Seventh Day Adventist (12%)

I am sure we did it earlier. Not sure if my result changed from the last time. The popular religions of the world are in late 20s - doesnt find lot of favor from me.

Its interesting to find my views are close to Liberal Christian Protestants , Buddhism & Taoism. Not surprising to find my views close to Hinduism.

Secular Humanism & Scientology looks interesting. So does Unitarian Universalism.

Not nice. I´m more of a Roman Catholic (indeed I am) than a Scientologist or Witness Jehovas. I dont know how this test was compiled but something is not that exact. However, the Universalism thing applies. But come on, I can´t imagine being 44% Islam. Sure it´s a great religion but I do not believe in it.

This test always tells me I'm about 77% Islam, which makes me very curious as to what Islam is loosely based around. Stereotypes and extremists aside, it cannot be that bad, as I am hardly more than moderate on many things.

Islam's a little Judaism, a little Christianity + a lot of room for interpretation (just like any other religion)!

That's about spot-on. Although I am currently not participating in any organized religion, I have been thinking that when I return to the States I will either look up some of the so-called liberal mainline denominations or see if I can find some liberal Quakers. I have been thinking a lot lately about non-violence in particular and about our responsibility to the earth and judicious use of natural resources, things that go along with Quakerism. Still, if I did end up a Quaker, I would have to laugh a bit. Thou dost laugh at thyself now.

Atheism all the way! I knew I would come out Humanist, It's ethically similar to Christianity (helping others etc.) but with all the crap filtered out so it fits neatly in my top pocket!
It refers to naturalistic explanations for everything rather than supernatural, I don't understand why humanism doesn't apply to more people. It makes so much more sense.
