Religion Quiz
(with comments)

A short quiz that supposedly tells you What religion do you fit in with?

My results:

You fit in with: Atheism

Your ideals mostly resemble those of an Atheist. You have very little faith and you are very focused on intellectual endeavors. You value objective proof over intuition or subjective thoughts. You enjoy talking about ideas and tend to have a lot of in depth conversations with people.

100% scientific.
80% reason-oriented.

You can get a pretty good idea of the validity of this quiz by looking at the other quizzes available at this site.

    I'm a Buddhist?

    There was no question asking if you believed in a higher power or if God created the universe. I would think that would be a very categorizing question.

    The "When will you become a millionare" quiz takes less time and is more fun.

    Spiritualism

    Your ideals are mostly spiritual, but in an individualistic way. While spirituality is very important in your life, organized religion itself may not be for you. It is best for you to seek these things on your own terms.

    40% spiritual.
    60% reason-oriented.

    I can live with it.

    Your ideals mostly resemble those of the Taoist faith. Spirituality is the most important thing in your life. You strive to live by all of your ideals, and live a very intellectually focused life.

    40% spiritual.
    20% reason-oriented.

    Huh...A Taoist Methodist...Never heard of such...My numbers sure aren't very high, either...Is that supposed to be an insult, or just explain why I like motorcycles and guitars?...

    You fit in with:
    Agnosticism

    Your ideals mostly resemble those of an Agnostic. You are fairly ambivalent towards any religion or spiritual connection. You lead a very busy life and find that religion and spirituality are unnecessary to your life.

    70% scientific.
    40% reason-oriented.

    I can't even answer the first question because it doesn't give me the option for a combination of "A" and "B". Obviously they don't like me and did not me to participate in this quiz. Sad...really sad.

    You fit in with:
    Humanism

    Your ideals mostly resemble that of a Humanist. Although you do not have a lot of faith, you are devoted to making this world better, in the short time that you have to live. Humanists do not generally believe in an afterlife, and therefore, are committed to making the world a better place for themselves and future generations.

    20% scientific.
    100% reason-oriented.

    spiritualism, pretty good, i'll take it.

    The real secret of Buddhism is not enlightenment.

    The secret is realizing that you've always been enlightened.

    Consciousness = Enlightenment

    Oddly enough, this isn't far from Unitarianism, Agnosticism, or Humanism.

    Spiritualism here too. A 60%/60% split. I'll take it.

    Says organized religion probably isn't right for me... oh thank God.

    0% reason-oriented.

    Based on these "facts" I'd evaluate this quiz as 60% bogus and 40% contrived.

    BTW: what religion is "fundamentist"...don't all religion (include j-walk's non-religion or the FSM religion) have their fundamentalists?

    To my great surprise I'm a Humanist

    Not too bad for an engineer.

    This quiz is so mickey mouse! Try http://www.beliefnet.com/story/76/story_7665_1.html for a more sophisticated religion quiz...that opens up ideas, not reducing them to binary superficiality.

    Taoist

    100% Spiritual
    20% Reason-oriented

    That actually might not be too good for an engineer, but I'd be having an identity crisis if they called me a humanist.

    You know, I laugh every time someone makes a reference to bacon, but I don't know how the running joke got started. Anybody?

    Man! Some of y'all are 120 percenters. Way to go!

    I think the bacon thing started with Toad. That's pretty much all he eats, you know. I've met him, and I know.

    Humanist, 0% scientific, 40% reason oriented.

    This bit of trivia seemed to produce a reasonably accurate profile (compared to several workplace analyses I have endured). The graph tells the story better than the text (eg my 0% scientific represents a balance between scientific and spiritual).

    Even sophisticated profiling instruments are readily distorted by the 'victim' adopting a consistent role while answering the questions (eg managers will always answer differently to, say, complaints-desk staff). Imagine you are a prisoner, then answer the questions. Later, adopt the role of a judge hearing a child-molestation case and see how your profile changes.

    BTW isn't JWalk qualified in this area?

    I'm a Taoism.

    There's no Islam in there, this could be the nearest to it.8(
