Belief-o-matic

Okay, this is pretty funny as a concept, but it's also remarkably interesting.

http://www.beliefnet.com/Entertainment/Quizzes/BeliefOMatic.aspx

You take a quiz with 20 questions, and then it tells you what faith/religion most closely suits your viewpoints; there are 26 religions to chose from on their list.

Try it - and I'm VERY interested to learn what it says, so if you'd like to share, I'm interested.

I was a little concerned that I wouldn't get a good UU score - what would that mean? - but I needn't have worried. 100% UU here.

Here are my top ten:
Your Results
The top score on the list below represents the faith that Belief-O-Matic, in its less than infinite wisdom, thinks most closely matches your beliefs. However, even a score of 100% does not mean that your views are all shared by this faith, or vice versa.
Belief-O-Matic then lists another 26 faiths in order of how much they have in common with your professed beliefs. The higher a faith appears on this list, the more closely it aligns with your thinking.

This was fun, Kristina. And no wonder that we get along so well - we have a lot in common according to this list!

Funniest to me is that the faith I was raised in (Roman Catholic) is #26 on my list, and I only matched 16%. Hmmm . . . no wonder I don't go there anymore! :)
