Agnostic - Until God(s) show themself, there is no evidence that they exist. It could never be proven that god doesn't exist.

Huh... I was matched with two different types of Buddhism, one of them being 100%, as well as Unitarian Universalism. I don't really know much about any of those, but I'll have to look into it. I've always been interested in Buddhism though... And now Mike (my boyfriend) has a roommate that is Buddhist, so maybe I will ask him.

Anyway, I was raised Catholic. But clearly I no longer believe in that anymore... Right now I am sort of exploring my ideas and beliefs. I hate that I was forced into believing one thing without even knowing about other religions. I think people should learn before making that choice, which is a personal choice, instead of being born into a certain way of thinking.

My quiz results are:

#1 Neo-Pagan
#2 Mahayana Buddhism
#3 Liberal Quaker

#3 while unexpected is funny in the sense that I live in an area with a notable Quaker population.

The quiz it's just lucky it isn't labeled a religion quiz since Neo-pagan isn't a religion it's a spiritual term.

I am Catholic,but just curious. Why is Catholic seperated out from Christian? It's a form of Christianity too.

But...I'm not a strict Catholic. I believe in alot of things I technically shouldn't believe in in my religion such as reincarnation,evolution, not having to confess to a priest,it's ok to be gay, and that people don't have to be Christian in order to go to Heaven, just be good,nice people(but then all of those except for the confession thing are technically against most if not all formal forms of Christian religion.)

I am Christian because I believe in Jesus being the son of God and being forgiving and that we should be nice to everyone and do charity and help each other stuff and not judge people. I don't agree with most organized forms of Christianity though because they totally and completely contradict what Jesus taught. Maybe it's just me but telling someone that they're going to go to hell because they are gay or Islamic is not "treating others how you want to be treated" or "loving your neighbors as you love yourself". :/ So, yeah, raised Catholic and attend Catholic mass,but I'm really my own thing. I believe in purgatory though,which is purely a Catholic thing as far as I know, but have my own twist on it in that I believe that reincarnation is actually purgatory. Also, as far as I know, Catholism is one of the few Christian religions where even though being a gay is still considred a sin(which I personally don't believe),it isn't believed that people go to hell for being gay. Also, it's a little less judgmental from some of the other Christian religions as the beliefs are that you just have to be Christian to get into Heaven(Again, something I don't believe), and not specifically Catholic, whereas I have some baptists family members that claim I'm going to go to hell just because I'm not specifically baptist. :roll: )


Edit:
I just took that quiz. It says my top 3 matches are:
Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants 100 percent(Lol. Ironic since I'm Catholic. :lol: )
Liberal Quakers 87 percent
Unitarian Universalism 75 percent

I would say of the 3, quaker and protestant are the best matches. I actually agree with alot of their points. I don't think Unitarianism is a good match though as there were only a few points I agreed with.

I am (by the poll anyway) the resident Buddhist here! I was raised Roman Catholic and bounced through a lot of religions before settling on philosophical Buddhism and religious Taoism (they have a lot of the same views). It's bizarre though living here now because everyone is some variety of Christian so I keep getting asked to church, and having to explain the closest church I could really enter would be the Unitarian downtown. Then I get wonderful questions like "How do they teach the words of Christ?"

At least I am getting very good at tactfully realigning the conversation before things get TOO awkward.

To caninesrock - Ok, the reason Catholic is separated out is because once upon a time these religions were majorly different, and in some ways they still are. The changes came as each subsequent religion broke off from the original Roman Catholic church (popes and what-not). With Protestants it's the view of contraception, Lutheran was the wonderful note on the church door, Baptists was the American break off (if I remember correctly), Mormon was the view point of polygamy, Jehovah's Witnesses, so on and so forth et fini. Originally a lot of these churches didn't like certain things (the Trinity was a major point of argument and lots of other things) but here is the main reason I think Catholic is separated off and it's two fold. One is due to the fact that the Catholic (Roman, though Irish is similar) is the oldest and most of these are considered break offs, and it's also that Catholics have a pontiff (known as the pope) that they still follow. None of the other Christian breakaways really have something similar to the pope or it's old-school dogma.

Test Results (oh my head):

Your Top 3 Faith Match Profiles Are:
1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)
2. Liberal Quakers (98%)
3. Mahayana Buddhism (98%)

I believe in God so I chose Christian. My career choice at one point was actually to become a missionary to spread the Gospel.

Quakers are a type of Christianity so I'd say the top 5 should fit pretty well. All but the one is a type of Christianity. Unitarian Universalism lets you be Christian too if you want. It's not a religion that excludes others.

I think my top options on this one fit me pretty well.

@TG: I was referring to the lowers ones on the list not being Christian like both forms of Judaism, Neo-Paganism, New Thought, Jainism, New Age, Islam,both forms of Buddhism, Tao-ism, Non-theist(is that another word for athiest?), Hinduism,and Sciencetology.

And some I've never even heard of before like Bahai,Sikhism, and Secular Humanism.

That's why the others have lower percentages by them. You share that percentage of beliefs with them but the top ones or one are what best fit all your beliefs.

Nontheism isn't really one specific thing, really but basically an atheist as they don't believe in a god but they may or may not still be religious and believe in other things.
