    Go to http://www.beliefnet.com/Entertainment/Qui...liefOMatic.aspx
    Answer the quiz.
    Post your result, opinion about it and your actual religion.

    My result:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I am antireligious, don't have faith, so the result is invalid. [​IMG]
    But I answered the quiz, anyway, because I like quizzes and this is an interesting subject.

    I got the following. Not really surprising as I'm not a religious person.

    Here's my results. Weird thing is - I didn't think I HAD a 'religion', more like 'beliefs'

    My 'belief' is that there IS someTHING beyond our comprehension that controls how things 'work' (after all what decides that when certain chemicals are mixed together in a certain way that 'life' is created ?? - in fact what decides that those chemical can only have that particular 'structure' ??) - & I think that 'god' (& he's variations) are just our way of explaining such things

    I agree with some christians more than expected...hmmm...
    Don't understand this "Unitarian Universalists" thing, as far as I can see they basically cover everyone who may or may not believe in God and may or may not believe in any number of Christian values. Not exactly a religion.
    Personally I consider myself an atheist as I do not believe in any specific higher power. I see the world as a marvel of chance infinitely diverse and complex. I like to think of different ways the world could be and wonder if somewhere in the multi-verse they exist. I don't know what happens after death though I would like to believe in rebirth but I have a few issues with the whole thing.

    I thought that this whole thing was very skewed towards the abrahamic belief systems. One of the questions' options were either for believing in the book of genesis or not; that's like asking "Are you Christian, Islamic, or Jewish?"
