May I have your, Belief-O-Matic, please?

Post by Tom Haws » 22 Jul 2009, 14:21

I would love to see what all your Belief-O-Matic scores and your Myers-Briggs types are. I think taking such tests several times is an interesting way to communicate who you are to others, as well as to think about your own way and path.

It's hard to take such tests when you are in a path like ours, because your ideas of belief can be a bit soft and elusive. But making the attempt can foster communication.

I generally have tested post-epiphany 100% Hindu or Jainist.

Today I answered some things a little differently, it appears.

1. Jainism (100%)
2. Baha'i Faith (96%)
3. Mahayana Buddhism (96%)
4. Liberal Quakers (94%)
5. Hinduism (93%)
6. Unitarian Universalism (89%)
7. New Age (86%)
8. Neo-Pagan (84%)
9. Theravada Buddhism (84%)
10. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (81%)
11. Orthodox Quaker (79%)
12. Orthodox Judaism (79%)
13. Reform Judaism (78%)
14. Islam (75%)
15. New Thought (73%)
16. Sikhism (71%)
17. Scientology (65%)
18. Taoism (65%)
19. Seventh Day Adventist (61%)
20. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (60%)
21. Secular Humanism (60%)
22. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (55%)
23. Jehovah's Witness (46%)
24. Nontheist (44%)
25. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (43%)
26. Eastern Orthodox (41%)
27. Roman Catholic (41%)

How did you get scored on these? Where did you take the test?
Luke: "Why didn't you tell me? You told me Vader betrayed and murdered my father."
Obi-Wan: "Your father... was seduced by the dark side of the Force. He ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and became Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. So what I told you was true... from a certain point of view."
Luke: "A certain point of view?"
Obi-Wan: "Luke, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to...depend greatly on our point of view."

Hey, Tom - we are nice people, but we ain't mind readers. Post the site for the test, dude! :P

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.

I'm gonna have to disagree here, Ray. I have pretty solid evidence that you've read my mind. More than once! :lol: btw, I'm only half kidding ;)

Sorry, Heber, spoke too soon.

Boy, you sure turned this whole exercise on it's head, huh? ;)
