Did everybody get a pop-up telling them that they were the 1,000,000th visitor to this web sight?<br><br><br><br>
I have taken this before, I was a conservative Quaker-- but I am not.

I took this before too and I think mine was almost exactly the same as Finlay's... except I think it was more like 1. Unitarian, 2. Reform Judaism, 3. Liberal Quaker, 4. Neo-pagan... and I don't remember 5.<br><br><br><br>
Funny because I was raised in reform judaism. Guess it really stuck, even though I haven't been practicing in years.

This quiz is the same as the one at beliefnet.com. However, this site is neat bc it links to other quizzes as well.

No surprises here. My wife and I were actually married by a secular humanist officiant. I could somewhat fit into Unitarian Universalism, too, but only in the most tolerant sense, not as a guide for my lifestyle. This was dead-on for me.<br><br><br><br>
1. Secular Humanism (100%)<br><br><br><ul><li>Belief in Deity: Not considered important. Most Humanists are atheists or agnostics.<br><br><br><br>
Incarnations: Same as above.<br><br><br><br>
Origins of universe/life: The scientific method is most respected as the means for revealing the mysteries of the origins of the universe and life.<br><br><br><br>
After death: An afterlife or spiritual existence after death is not recognized.<br><br><br><br>
Why evil? No concept of evil. Reasons for wrongdoing are explored through scientific methods, e.g. through study of sociology, psychology, criminology, etc.<br><br><br><br>
Salvation: No concept of afterlife or spiritual liberation or salvation. Realizing ones personal potential and working for the betterment of humanity through ethical consciousness and social works are considered paramount, but from a naturalistic rather than supernatural standpoint.<br><br><br><br>
Undeserved suffering: No spiritual reasons, but rather a matter of human vulnerability to misfortune, illness, and victimization.<br><br><br><br>
Contemporary Issues: The American Humanist Association endorses elective abortion. Other contemporary views include working for equality for homosexuals, gender equality, a secular approach to divorce and remarriage, working to end poverty, promoting peace and non-violence, and environmental protection.</li>
</ul><br>
2. Unitarian Universalism (91%)<br><br><br><br>
3. Non-theist (77%)

FWIW: I've "been" most of these (I won't tell you which ones, though) and my current belief system falls closer to "Mainline - Conservative Christian Protestant" but in a liberal, bible-beliving sort of way that <i>still</i> freaks out most conservatives and liberals and makes them wonder <i>how</i> I found this stuff in the Bible to begin with ... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I don't even know what a majority of them from the list are! I don't even think about religion much. I have my whole life ahead of me, and if I find one I believe along the way, then so be it. Right now, it's not a pressing issue on my mind, to be honest.

I have to say that I sort of choked when I saw Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic up near the top of the list. And Seventh Day Adventist. I'm more interested in some of the ones near the bottom of the list than those near the top. It was a nice quiz though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

This is really strange cuz I don't agree with the first one, but the second is the one I've always related closely too.

I've done this before and got 100% neopagan which was no surprise. But my unspiritual belief-apathetic fiance also got 100% neopagan! HA! Loved it...

That was intersting... I always end up with a neopagan with 100%, and the rest having ones including atheism or agnostic... strange really, I wouldt have expected that considering my father's a christian minister, and I went to a Luthern school for a while, and a Catholic college...

Maybe it rubs off through osmosis... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">
