Every presidential candidate in 2008 proposed a stimulus package, and Mitt Romney’s was the largest.

Interesting because there are usually more in the top 10% for most folks, yours was pretty cut and dry there.

What questions did you have beef with?

Any surprises?

I know I've said it before, but to be clear, this is a 'what do I over lap with in world religions and ideas, but is NOT meant to determine your faith's label, necessarily... I think after years of that question, they finally put a disclaimer on the opening page



Thanks Fellas, I know it's a little boxy quiz, but its always fun to see what comes up for people, on the top 10%.... And also on the bottom 10%... ah hell... I like looking at the whole list!

Thanks!

Could pick.

I wear two Christian bracelets, a mala beads one and an OM bracelet too. You never know which of the gods might decide to smite you that day!!

Lol jk. I'm not really surprised me and you had similar results. You're like my 3rd sponser lol. (btw, my sponser is also practicing Christian mysticism. He also taught me that Christ really existed and that anyone can communicate with his spirit. Pretty fuggin awesome. But yeah I'm surprised. Wtf quakers? Gotta read more on that

This latest was actually my most odd one yet, and it's because I think I engaged the "God" word on my own terms instead of predicting how the test looked at it, and went with 'low' on the "God-based" choices,

What Giles and I talked about, via the Tillich quote is really how I feel....

But here were 4 of my quizes compiled and I took the 1-10 answers:

Quote:
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%)
Although they aren't drastically that different. My theory is the ones that are on ours, are on a lot of people's who sway theistically at all... because Buddhism, UUism, New Age, Quakers and even Pagan are pretty inclusive, so if you have any tendencies you'll over lap with them most likely....

Ya know what I mean?

It's interesting and nice to hear me as a third sponsor, I'll keep that in mind as we talk in the future.

Quakers.... They are over all VERY cool. The Liberal one's are very VERY inclusive and don't even really entail being Christian so to speak.
It's more about recognizing the Light of Good inside you and wanting to connect with and honour that.

Traditionally they focus on the 'Holy Spirit' as the access to God inside us, and believe in DIRECT contact with God, that is, God hasn't stopped speaking to us.... and this, by default means they are Mystics of Christianity as well, which is some one, but not completely different from the more traditional Mystics of the Catholic and Orthodox traditions.

Many UUs I know went to Quaker meetings as well, and I myself have attended them countless times. They are really open folks and think that you'd do well to look into EITHER of these communities.

If you want to talk more about it, you know where to find me.

Happy pathways.

I have to say this is THE most unique quiz result I've ever seen, mothernature!
And I've never seen 0% ever!



Very nice! Thanks for sharing your results w/ us
I enjoyed this very much,

It's cool to see where people come from within a set quiz, even though the quiz itself isn't perfect, we're getting and relating on the same imperfect model, which is still pretty cool.

There are no 'wrong impressions' about this kind of stuff with me Bro,
I mean, we can all differ and touch differently the ways and means of our own experiences......

Seriously...

Well, it could be my mood. Or my interpretations of the questions.

What I find strange is how we seem to differ so vastly belief wise, but still have so much respect for each other. Strange is not the right word. It's a good thing though.

My beliefs are simple. What you put out, you may or may not get back. I do think that good attracts good and bad attracts bad, but not always. There are just no guarantees.
I know I feel better inside when I do good things and feel bad when I do bad things. I realize that these are my own definitions of good and bad. It could come from my religious background (raised Methodist). I just don't know.
I like to feel good. I avoid those things that make me feel bad. Wouldn't that be considered completely selfish?

I don't know where I was going with this....

kinda surprised by the results, maybe its because i tried to give an answer to everything and left it mostly on medium preference. unitarian universalist and liberal quaker i can maybe see, and maybe even a bit of certain hindu or buddhist traditions, but protestantism and fucking scientology over 60%...fuck me. not surprised that daoism is high up and catholicism is pretty low, but since i usually just identify myself as a non-theist (as opposed to atheist) that one was unexpected.

is just joining every religion an option? figure i should probably hedge my bets

I was born into a Methodist family and baptized Methodist...

Sort felt funny, knowing the history of John Wesley, when I started going to the Anglican Church. Wesley was until his death a Priest in the Church of England, and 'Methodism' was only just that... a method of practicing his beliefs. If wasn't until later that Methodism became it's own thing, particularly in the States after the War of Independence....

So for the double whammy... I was also IN Canada when I started attending the Anglican Church!



The Anglicans and Episcopal Church, which are part of the same Church body, are both VERY liberal on traditional 'hot' topics in regular churchery, which I find rather refreshing.

Canada in particular I think has lead some major reforms, such as women in the Clergy doing everything including the 'holy bits' as my Priest in Toronto said

My first Sunday at an Anglican Church I was greeted by a married lesbian couple and their adopted daughter.... I knew something was different then and there!

What came later was just more surprises, one after the other after another, and the retired Priest who I volunteered with was a pretty far out guy himself, so I thought, mide-as-well try it out... and I liked it.

Cool stuff Xil! UUs are sort of a find your own way, meet under the same principles kind of place, as are the Liberal Quakers, in my experience.

I wouldn't say I have 'joined' every religion, but I've taken part in many many many houses of worship. To me, the intention is what makes them all the 'same' to me, so to speak... just a different dance usually

So, I don't know where you live or what you have access to, but most places are pretty down with having visitors on worship days or just to tour and talk with a leader in the Community.

Recently I started attending the Coptic Orthodox Church here in town,
I'm actually REALLY digging it.

Again... thanks for taking the test, it's cool , imo, to revisit this every so often, play with the language and preferences... seeing how it goes each time.

I was surprised this time at how much higher Reformed Judaism was on my list, and Jainism is the highest it's ever been on my list, but has been in my top 10 whenever I've taken this test for over 12 years now... which is pretty interesting to me as they both have beliefs in God, but not exactly seeing their 'theism' as the highest goal in practicing their religion.


Cheers folks, like mothernature said, we're all vastly different, but somehow get along...

IMO, it comes back to the intention, and in this case the intention of being with each other, TRULY this is our beliefs and values in ACTION, which, I think, is how it ought to be. Who cares what you are... as long as it's safe and responsible, I know I'm down with however you all get to the point of being the fantastic folks you are!

I'll do the quiz again when I have time and write out some commentary for each of the questions.


also - they do not consider jehovahs witnesses do they?

Your Top 3 Faith Match Profiles Are:
1. Mahayana Buddhism (100%)
2. Theravada Buddhism (88%)
3. New Age (83%)



Interesting. I was raised in a non-practicing southern baptist family, converted to Catholicism after about 6 yrs of marriage (mostly so the kids wouldn't be confused). I know nothing of buddhism.... looks like some reading is in order.

'im sticking with 'undefined' for the moment. Many of the questions i just had to settle on the best answer available.
mixing and matchin
What did your email list say there are like 20 some names on the list?

Be aware, this is 'over lap' w/ religions, not a 'tell me my religion test'

Interesting. I was raised in a non-practicing southern baptist family, converted to Catholicism after about 6 yrs of marriage (mostly so the kids wouldn't be confused). I know nothing of buddhism.... looks like some reading is in order.
Same question as Fender, did you check the email?
And that this is a 'commonality' quiz not a 'find your religion' quiz, but you reading more about who you have stuff in common with is the RIGHT idea, imo.

my wife is year. I'd say 30-40% is about right at this point.

the reason I asked is while i was taking it i was thinking about having my wife take it. but there were no answers really that pertain to the j-dubs specifically and that would probably frustrate any j-dub (loving the new word) as that is the way their religion is structured

Every presidential candidate in 2008 proposed a stimulus package, and Mitt Romney’s was the largest.

Unfortunately, I used a bunk email to avoid spam, so I never got the rest.

I wasn't looking for anything in particular as I am quite satisfied with my own spirituality. I've never trusted organized religion's interpretations and therefore never afraid to listen to my own inner voice.

My idea of "Sunday Service" is observing the first rays of the morning from a mountain top at sunrise, however, I can be a voracious reader at times and always on the lookout for new subjects

Thank you, Sage.
