It's weird, cuz I somehow missed this thread everytime I went into the Spiritual Smoke. Then you mentioned it in Geenos thread and I was like hmmm, I'm feeling 'quizzy'.

Ever get that feeling that's like "I Am You, You Are Me, We Are We"? Haha. Different apples same tree, sage.

I think that Unitarians are so encompassing, it's almost not fair that it's on here. But they are a pretty safe bunch, in the world of religion/belief/practice. I went to church with Christians and Atheists when I went to one. Its pretty crazy and pretty cool. Pretty hopeful.

So here is a little something.....

Here is a famous quote in the church. It's said jokingly,imo, and 'too good' isn't to me above it all, although UUs are subjected to that no differently that other idealists.

Quote:
"The Universalists believe that God is too good to damn them, and the Unitarians believe they are too good to be damned!" ~Thomas Starr King
While today its as much a philosophy as a spiritual path...
Its an idea that was shunned in The First Council of Nicea and at the time of the protestant reformation, when again the unity of God(verses the trinity) was questioned openly. And for most of its history was a protestant faith, along side the Universalist Christianity (which is now a different designation from Universalist), whom believe that 'all things shall be returned to God'.

In the late 1800s there was nearly a merger of the two. During the American Transcendental period, when many things were changing in religions and philosophies across the country. Unitarianism started become more open and less a liberal protestant faith.

Finally in 1961 the two Churches joined. By this time the Uni in unitarian became more to me unifying, and the universalism shifted emphasis to accepting all paths to meaning.

This is a pretty good read about the history and such. Somethings I have mentioned already, however there are principles to abide by rather than creeds. "A free and responsible search for meaning" is about it and are more defined here:


~taken from Unitarian Universalism
Quote:
Unitarian Universalists place emphasis on spiritual growth and development. Unitarian Universalism is a creedless religion. The Unitarian Universalist Association affirms seven principles:[30]

* The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
* Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
* Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
* A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
* The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
* The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
* Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

The official statement of Unitarian Universalist principles describes the "sources" upon which current practice is based:[30]

* Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
* Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
* Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
* Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
* Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
* Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

While I did go to Church with Atheists I would say most people would agree, to sum this up as Spiritual Humanism although Secular Humanism is the basis for social action.

To me it seemed a place where one can journey within themselves, and have the support of friends and staff in your searching.

I must have taken the test at least ten times now over teh course of the last two years... and each time I get one of these as 100%... New-age, neo-pagan and UU. I am interested to know what question I answeres differntly to get he slightly differnt results. In every case thos three metioned were in the top 3 but in diferent orders each time.

What do you think about the accuracy of such a test?

Is religion simply a group of beliefs? And if so, then are you truely apart of that religion if you do not 'subscribe' to all the beliefs it contains? How many Christians are truely christians etc.

Rang up Unitarian Universalist/Secular Humanist right at 100%.

Man, I wish I'd thought of that phraseology when I came out to my parents as an atheist at Christmas dinner last week. Only way that could have gone better was if I passed a bowl around afterwards.

Thoughts on the Timeaus?

It was time .

1. Mahayana Buddhism (100%) Unitarian Universalism (100% Mahayana Buddhism(100%) Theravada Buddhism (100%)

2. Unitarian Universalism (99%) Theravada Buddhism (94%) Theravada Buddhism (94%) Mahayana Buddhism (99%)

3. Hinduism (98%) Mahayana Buddhism (90%) Unitarian Universalism (93%) Neo-Pagan (85%)

4. Neo-Pagan (97%) Liberal Quakers (83%) Neo-Pagan (92%) Unitarian Universalism (81%)

5. Liberal Quakers (97%) Neo-Pagan (79%) Liberal Quakers (90%) Liberal Quakers (80%)

6. New Age (96%) New Age (75%) New Age (87%) Jainism (78%)

7. Theravada Buddhism (86%) Secular Humanism (72%) Taoism (80%) New Age (77%)

8. New Thought (81%) )Taoism (69%) Jainism (77%) Taoism (76%)

9. Jainism (74%) Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (68%) Hinduism (72%) Hinduism (64%)

10. Taoism (74%) Jainism (66%) Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (71%) Sikhism (61%)


It seems 'New Age' and 'Liberal Quaker are the most consistent and happened 3 times on lines 5 and 6. After that Mahayana, Theravada and Neo-Pagan happen two times on lines 1,2 and 4.

I personally identify the Buddhist labels as well do I feel the Pagan designation describes the mystery and interconnectedness with the world. My Wife is a practicing pagan and she conversely feels the language and approach in Buddhism. Not sure what New Age specifically is.... but coming from a Christian up bringing, but realizing how I touch upon that language now is certainly more in that mystic way that would be apparent in the Way Quakers Know. It seems like people get Unitarian a lot of the time on this quiz so I'd like to state for the record I do and have attended regularly UU churches... heh.. but I suppose my label already says that lol. I met lots of Quakers there who saw little or no difference, that is, they were comfortable at either, as I would have to add are similar in experience from attending Quaker meetings.

26. Eastern Orthodox (16%)
27. Roman Catholic (16%)
A top UU score on here seems to be popular and since there isn't a cap on beliefs there it doesn't surprise me. But it IS intriguing that RC is on the bottom of all things. It's nice to see this because it gives me a sense of the test and possible bias.

I also hope it can be a learning opportunity for us to see how close we align to others in our shared planet.

I don't feel the intent is to tell you what you are, but perhaps what you have in common with others in some way? Having an exact view in language, doesn't mean that theory doesn't over lap. Granted putting religions into orthodox holes is a tad hard itself. So take it for what it is I suppose and I always click the link that is the name of the religion to find out what they deem 'specifics'. And then I do some reading on my own.

How does this match with how you feel, the results that is?

Cheers
