This was... Obvious.

1. Secular Humanism (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (97%)
3. Liberal Quakers (87%)
4. Neo-Pagan (78%)
5. Nontheist (76%)
6. New Age (69%)
7. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (68%)
8. Taoism (66%)
9. Theravada Buddhism (65%)
10. Mahayana Buddhism (57%)
11. Orthodox Quaker (44%)
12. Reform Judaism (44%)
13. Scientology (43%)
14. New Thought (40%)
15. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (33%)
16. Baha'i Faith (29%)
17. Hinduism (29%)
18. Sikhism (29%)
19. Jainism (27%)
20. Seventh Day Adventist (22%)
21. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (22%)
22. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (18%)
23. Eastern Orthodox (11%)
24. Islam (11%)
25. Orthodox Judaism (11%)
26. Roman Catholic (11%)
27. Jehovah's Witness (7%)

I had a great problem with the first questions. I treat the Universe pretty much like the summun of all of existence, giving it some kind of supreme status. But, generally speaking, it's just existence itself, without any implication either morally or spiritually. This explains why some New Age stuff seems to be popular with me.

And look at the last 8 religions I have. I am supposedly of the second-to-last one.

@Yiuel,

Can't say until I know what that is supposed to mean.

However, I ain't Roman Catholic at all. That's good news enough for me, not that I didn't already know I wasn't. But it just makes it so clear than I cannot be in communion at all with that awful church.

I decided to derive and correlate some numbers when pondering theism

add the top 8 (your highest / most likely religion)
add the bottom 8 / least likey ones
what is the delta between these two sums?

Theory: non-theistic persons might have lower "delta" conversely,
greater delta possibly for persons whom "practice one or more theologies religiously"
ROFL (Pardon my pun: I simply meant "thestic" as opposed to non-theistic persons)

Regardless of how scientific I do-are am-is being-will-using symbol-for-indicate of not-exact-science:
Aprox: ≈
Here's my own top / unlikely / delta results (Sarah White AKA kuzetsa)

///my numbers in detail in above quoted section / original Belief-o-Matic results///
Top score: 727 ≈ 100 + 99 + 98 + 92 + 91 + 85 + 82 + 80
Unlikely Score: 112 ≈ 23 + 17 + 17 + 17 + 14 + 12 + 6 + 6
Delta score: 615 ≈ 727 - 112
Easily expressed in "Plus or Minus ();" notation as: 419.5 307.5

Mahayana Buddhism is the belief that Siddhartha Gautama (The Buddha, founder of Buddhism) is a "God" while Theravada does not and is more closely related to ancient Buddhism.

Mahayana Buddhism is the belief that Siddhartha Gautama (The Buddha, founder of Buddhism) is a "God" while Theravada does not and is more closely related to ancient Buddhism.

Passed a year in a Mahayana Buddhist community. Among them, Gautama was not a god, not even something near, just someone who understood the deepest truth in the Universe (the famous awakening) and passed it down to his followers. He's more like a "saint" : a model from whom you receive wisdom, and an example to follow as best as you can following his wisdom. His thoughts are the most praiseworthy (himself being the model to apply his thoughts).

This is from the page describing nontheists (http://www.beliefnet.com/Faiths/2001/06/What-Atheists-Agnostics-Believe.aspx) after the quiz.

Atheists do not believe in a god or deity. Atheists' beliefs are similar to those of the Secular Humanists but do not necessarily include the emphasis on humanity's ability to improve the human condition. Views on contemporary issues vary widely.

Agnostics are inclined to question the existence of supernatural being(s) or a force, e.g., the answer to whether or not God (or Deity) exists would be: "We do not and/or cannot know."

What do you guys think of that?

by the way I'm

1. Secular Humanism (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (94%)
3. Liberal Quakers (82%)
4. Nontheist (76%)
5. Neo-Pagan (70%)
6. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (69%)
14. Jainism (44%)
15. Scientology (38%)
16. New Thought (34%)
17. Islam (33%)
20. Sikhism (30%)
21. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (28%)
22. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (27%)
23. Hinduism (25%)
24. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (23%)
25. Eastern Orthodox (22%)
26. Roman Catholic (22%)
27. Jehovah's Witness (17%)

38% $cilon, it's shameful really.

She actually has an interesting point: if your numbers are more extreme in their linings (e.g. all of your results are either under 20% or over 80%) then you're probably more extreme in your beliefs than if your results are more gradual. However, I wouldn't say that extreme results point to fundamentalist theism. Inversely, extreme results could also point to fundamentalist atheism (a 7 on the Dawkins scale).

The other problem with this idea is that many faiths share similar ideas but disagree over more minor points. Think of religious sects: the similarities outweigh the differences between Sunnis and Shiites, but you wouldn't clump them together. I've seen deeply religious Christians answer this poll, and they line up 85% with Orthodox Jews.

If we're looking to see just how passionate someone is about their beliefs from thsi test, ask them to post the URL to their results page. The test was made in PHP, so you can read the inputted variables from the URL. Find the numbers of the questions on faith (not the ones on morality) and see how they ranked the priority of those questions. A gnostic person will choose more "Medium" and "High" options than an agnostic person.
