what faith are you? post here!

this was done over a year ago, but i didn't wanna unearth a really old thread. (esp. cuz it was back before the forum change so all the smilies are red x's, etc.)

so i thought i might as well start a new thread about it, since we've got a lot more people here than we did before. i'm not intending for this to be some spirituality debate as to which religion is better, or even which one you follow, but which one you're most compatible with. i think the results are funny, cuz this time around, i didn't get my religion as the top spot. it made #2.

the link

here goes...

----------------

1. Orthodox Quaker (100%)
2. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (94%)
3. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (87%)
4. Hinduism (82%)
5. Seventh Day Adventist (82%)
6. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (78%)
7. Eastern Orthodox (77%)
8. Roman Catholic (77%)
9. Unitarian Universalism (77%)
10. Liberal Quakers (76%)
11. Mahayana Buddhism (74%)
12. Neo-Pagan (74%)
13. Sikhism (70%)
14. Jehovah's Witness (68%)
15. Theravada Buddhism (68%)
16. Reform Judaism (59%)
17. Orthodox Judaism (59%)
18. Jainism (57%)
19. New Age (57%)
20. Secular Humanism (48%)
21. Taoism (46%)
22. Bahá'í Faith (44%)
23. Islam (42%)
24. Scientology (38%)

btw...feel free to elaborate on your results. if your religion/belief made #1 for you, then tell us! if something else did, but you think it sounds outlandish, or really interesting, cool!

i was shocked to see i was most compatible with orthodox quakers! i mean 100! wow! but after reading the description (belief in the holy trinity, the creation may not have been a 7 day span as we know it, inward salvation rather than outward, nonviolence, etc.) it sounds a lot more like me than liberal christian protestants does at times. interesting, i must find out more about this religion...

Wow. This is definitely not what I expected. I was born into Catholicism, but I've never really felt like I was Catholic, so it's not surprising that it didn't score high. But I never expected it to come in after Scientology or New Age. That said, I think the top four mesh pretty well with my belief system, although I'd say the top two should probably be switched. Yeah, this was pretty interesting.

No surprises here. I guess they don't have a category for radical liberal Catholics who go to Episcopal churches...lol.

Interesting - I would attend 4, 7 & 8 before even considering venturing into 2, 5 or 6. But with only 20 questions, what do you expect?

pretty crazy for a lutheran girl!

That site is weird, I've taken that before and the choices are just too bare. Half the things I believe aren't even really in the realm of what you have to pick between.
