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.)

I have been thinking about religion and my beliefs…

I have been thinking the last few years about religion and my beliefs. This religious thinking off mine it has really intensified over the summer. I have been working on a farm for the summer in BC as some of you who read this blog of mine already know and, If you read some of my other blogs including my poetry one (Lyricsofmylife) and my strictly Unitarian Universalist (UU) focused one (UU Quest) this thinking of mine will be even more obvious to you. Yes this summer I have been working on a farm and most afternoons including must Sundays (my day off) have been spend engaged in this thinking. This thinking has been accompanied by me reading my favourite UU blogs (primarily Sunflowers & Spirituality) and listening to Christian rock acts like Superchick, BarlowGirl and Kristal Meyers. Also those who read this blog will remember that I tried to read the whole Christian Bible both, the Old Testament and New testament last summer. I never got past the part in the Old Testament ware God tells this chosen people (the Israelites) to commit genocide against their enemies and steal their land for use as their new home land. The reason I could not get past this was I detest violence of all kind and find its promotion reprehensible. As well last winter I tired studying the New Testament in University but I could not take the historical and literary approaches that my teacher she had us use wen looking at it (mostly the Synoptic Gospels). In addition to all this I have had for a few years the feelings that Trinitarianism makes so much sense for me. not to mention I have Benn having great feelings of needing God more in my life. This Trinitarian feeling of mine and my great feeling of needing of God in My life are aliening with my emerging agreement with the sentiments that are expressed in some off the Christian rock songs I have been listening to such as; I Belong To You, Enough, The Beauty of Grace and In Your Hands. In addition the last two times I tuck the Belief-O-Matic quiz which is intended to help you determine which religion or spiritual philosophy is most compatible with your beliefs Christianity came up on top of the list and Unitarian Universalism my current religion and religious home was also near the top of the list. So What is this all saying? Well I think firstly it is saying I need to live a more God centred life and, secondly I think it is saying I need to explorer Trinitarian Christianity more and, thirdly I think it is saying I need to do this within a UU setting.

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.

My religion quizzes results

These are my results from two tests, which claim to tell which religion my beliefs are most in line with. The first is my results from the famous Belief-O-Matic quiz from the good people over at Beliefnet. And if you feel so inclined to take this quiz yourself you can by going to http://www.beliefnet.com/story/76/story_7665_1.html. And the second one is the lesser-known BELIEF SYSTEM SELECTOR test curtsy of the staff at SelectSmart.com and it can be found at http://www.selectsmart.com/religion/. And so do have a try at them both. And what do my results say about me well, I find it really interesting having grown up in a humanist/personal spiritualist dominant Unitarian Universalist church to have Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants to be at the top of both of the quiz results.
