My Spiritual Belief System Selector Quiz results…

This is what staff at SelectSmart.com say about the Spiritual Belief System Selector Quiz. “”IMPOSSIBLE!” you say. How could a simple quiz that includes just over 2 dozen belief systems possibly work for everyone? Well, given that there are thousands of nuanced religions and faith groups and countless individual beliefs, you are right – it is impossible. That said, we took our research for this selector seriously and strived to be as accurate as possible. Most visitors have found it fun, informative and often surprisingly revealing. Note: When doctrine wasn’t available, we looked at the predominant views of the belief system’s adherents.”

So what do my results (listed bellow) say about my religious beliefs. It says my compatibility with Unitarian Universalism, my childhood and current religious home has fallen from 77% in 2010 to 66% today. It also indicates that Orthodox Quaker is still 100% the best chose for me to go check out. I would go check out an Orthodox Quaker community if their was one in me aria (Halifax, NS), and I believe there is not one. Also I believe one of the reason Unitarian Universalism was only 66% a good fit for me in my results was the questions asked leaned to much to things that where not all that impotent to me and left out ones that I would have marked as highly important to me.

So here are my Spiritual Belief System Selector Quiz results:

1. Orthodox Quaker – Religious Society of Friends (100 %)
2. Seventh Day Adventist (75 %)
3. Liberal Quakers – Religious Society of Friends (74 %)
4. Mainline – Liberal Christian Protestants (73 %)
5. New Age (69 %)
6. Neo-Pagan (67 %)
7. Unitarian Universalism (66 %)
8. Mainline – Conservative Christian Protestant (65 %)
9. Eastern Orthodox (58 %)
10. Roman Catholic (58 %)
11. Taoism (57 %)
12. Islam (49 %)
13. Orthodox Judaism (49 %)
14. Hinduism (49 %)
15. Jainism (48 %)
16. Bahai (46 %)
17. New Thought (43 %)
18. Reform Judaism (43 %)
19. Jehovahs Witness (40 %)
20. Mahayana Buddhism (38 %)
21. Sikhism (38 %)
22. Secular Humanism (37 %)
23. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (31 %)
24. Christian Science Church of Christ, Scientist (29 %)
25. Theravada Buddhism (29 %)
26. Scientology (25 %)
27. Non-theist (18 %)

And here are my 2010 and 2008 results. (It should be noted I used the Belief-O-Matic quiz a very similar quiz from Beliefnet to determine my 2010 and 2008 results.)

Seeking to build a list of UU Christian and UU Christian leaning folks on Twittter

I have started my list of blogs that are written by Unitarian Universalist (UU) Christian and UU Christian leaning folks but, it has come to my mind that an easier way to fallow them may by through twitter. If you are like me you tweet all your posts with Twitter. Also there may be some UU Christian folks who just twitter plus some UU Christian related groups that may also tweet that are worthy of fallowing. So if you are a UU Christian or a UU Christian leaning person who tweets just let me know below or by messaging me on Twitter (@realmdee) and I will add you to the list. You can do the same if you know of a UU Christian related group.

Seeking blogs by UU Christians and Christian leaning UUs

I am finding my religious beliefs moving in the detection of Christianity but, I don’t think I can yet call myself a Christian. I am also fining that my connection to Unitarian Universalism (UU) my life long religious community is only getting stronger. My love of teaching UU Sunday school and gathering with my fellow UU young adults for fun and religious nourishment it, only seams to be growing. And If you checked the music on my computer you would find it is made up of tons of modern country music and yup Christian rock music as well. You would even notes if you looked at the music a bit more closely that the Christian rock tends to be newer additions then the country. Also if you were to take a look at my web history that I tend to visit mostly UU blogs and web sites and more resistantly, I have been one the hunt for ones with both a UU and a Christian theme to theme. I was thinking it would help me and probably others who are moving in this religious direction if, their could be a list off blogs by UU’s who are either Christian or Christian leaning folks. Such a list would help us to 1. realize even though we are a small minority’s minority we, are not alone and 2. give us people to discus Christianity from a UU prospective as well as its place in our lives and our UU lives with. I could create a page here on this blog of mine for them to be listed on. All I need to start this page is for you to send me some. I await your submissions.

My Belief-O-Matic quiz results

These are my results from Beliefnet’s Belief-O-Matic quiz which claim to tell which religion my beliefs are most in line with. The first list is my current results (2010) and the second list is my 2008 results. What you can tell from the lists is that my current and also childhood religion, Unitarian Universalism has moved up from the 8th best fit for me to 4th best fit for me but it as moved dawn 1 percentage from 78% to 77% compatible with my believes. Ware as Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants has moved dawn one place from number one to number two switching percentages and places with Orthodox Quaker to come in at 98% compatible with my beliefs instead of 100%. Also of note is that Nontheist has moved from last place number 27 and 24% compatible with my beliefs to number 24 and 30% compatible with my beliefs. So what dos this all mean really? Well probability not that much in the grand scheme of things. But for me it is fun to do if only too see how my religious beliefs may have sifted and too find out which religion or religious body may be most compatible with them. And if you feel so inclined to take this quiz yourself you can by going here.

Devin Murphy’s List of Life Goals (Version 1.1)

This is a revision of my personal list of life goals. If you go here and have a look at the original incarnation you will notes that their were some things on the list that I have removed from this list do to the fact I did not have the financial ability to attend and the resulting fact they have taken place with out me being at them. Also you will notes I have added an item to the list as well as completing one of them.

_____________________________________

What fallow is a list of goals to which I hop to achieve. And some of these goals are short-term goals achievable in a few years, months or even just weeks. But others are more long-term goals only achievable by the fruition of some of the short-term goals. And it is worth noting that this list was inspired by a workshop, which was port of a coming of age retreat to which I helped to facilitate not this Fall but last Fall. And it is also worth noting that the very workshop that inspired this list was itself inspired by the one and only John Goddard and his “Life List” of 127 goals to which he wrote way back in 1940 at the age of 15 will living in LA. It is as well worth mentioning he has to date completed 104 of his 127 goals. Now I am not saying that I will necessarily be like John and complete the majority of my goals, but I do hop to complete a godly some of them over the coming years of my life. Ok I am only 26 not as young as Goddard was wen he wrote his list but I still think I am young enough to make a big bent in my list. A list to which I am sure will continue to wax and wane as I complete and add new stuff to the list and from time to time even removing a few items from the list whether do to an inability to no longer achieve them or a change of interest on my part.
