    I'm not saying it's true I'm just saying that is what I would be if I had to label what I believe. It's not a quiz on your personality, it's a quiz based on what you already believe and then it's matched with what other religions believe. I think it's a good way to decide what you're religion is. If it doesn't match your personality you're gonna hate it and want nothing to do with it. This way it fits what you think and you enjoy it.

    Blood Fetish: Well it certainly doesn't seem like the orthodox way (pardon the pun) but the paths to wisdom are many and variegated. Maybe he can find what is right for him by a quiz. It's not right for me, but who is to say it's not right for him?

    There's religious personality tests?

    Uh...I thought the reason for religion was to be closer to God/gods/higher power/yourself, not to take a personality test and see which --probably-- incorrect religion suits your interests.

    None of this makes sense to me...

    To kill, not to murder. God created life, and it belongs to him, so it's logical that he has the right to take it away. Murder is not the same thing.

    Very well said PK. If there is a God watching over us all, then that would fall under the "The Lord Giveth and The Lord taketh away" clause.

    Indeed, but note that this doesn't suggest that he is responsible for all deaths that occur.

    To suggest that God taking away life is murder would be like you building a Lego house and then I come along afterwards and I tell you you aren't allowed to dismantle it. To supplement that, you dismantling that house is also not the only way it can be destroyed. Something else can come along and destroy it without your input.

    I already went but some things appeared since last post.

    I am assuming by your flag/location you mean Russian orthodox (although there are many Slavic orthodox churches so I apologise if I am wrong here or indeed if you go in for the more general movement that could be called orthodoxy).

    As a major world religion it's interesting to see that most people have no idea what I'm talking about when I say I'm Sikh, and commonly default me to Hindu/Muslim lol.

    That aside, I wish people would use common sense in combination with their religious beliefs. I mean being a good person should be universal for everyone... so I don't think that there can ever be a 'right religion'. I guess aslong as everyone has a set of morally good principles that they can believe in, then that's the best thing.

    I must admit I have seen this too. I find it doubly amusing that there are probably fewer followers of Judaism yet "the man on the street" can probably tell you a fair bit about that.

    Isn't that pretty much how religion works these days? You pick and choose your rules and justify what you agree with.

    Also, this video pretty much summarizes my views.

    So going by your logic, its logical that you have the right to kill your own child because after you did create it?

    Well... it's KINDA different when you order a genocide don't you think?

    "All these people are bad and deserve my hellfire that I created."

    "But what about the babies?"

    "HAHA what babies? The slaughter of innocent babes means nothing!"

    Just reading the Bible, you soon find out that God is in fact a murderer.
