    My top 10 according to selectsmart are:

    100% Hindu
    77% Mainline Conservative Christian
    66% Jehovah's Witness
    66% Mormon
    65% Roman Catholic
    65% Eastern Orthodox
    64% Sikhism
    63% Mahayana Buddhism
    61% Orthodox Judaism
    60% Orthodox Quaker

    I don't know whether to go burn some incense or start distributing pamphlets door to door.:D

    you are a solid 2/3's a door knocker... but yeah...you'd have to make pamphlets to explain your mix...maybe just stick them under windshield wipers.

    I just noticed the Selectsmart test has a prevision to prioritize your answers, so I took the test again. This time, Conservative Christian dropped to number 9, (sorry "T"), but now, according to Selectamart, I may be a Paganistic Polytheist Buddhist....o_O - Gonna have to reprint those pamphlets....:oops:

    1. Hinduism (100%)
    2. Jainism (76%)
    3. Mahayana Buddhism (74%)
    4. Neo-Pagan (72%)
    5. Sikhism (68%)
    6. Orthodox Judaism (64%)
    7. Jehovah s Witness (61%)
    8. Theravada Buddhism (59%)
    9. Mainline - Conservative Christian (58%)
    10. Mormon (57%)

    Christian dropped to number 7.... You are a Hindu, Jain, Buddhist, Pagan, Sikh, Jew, JW.... But it appears the portion of your religious christian beliefs come out conservative firs (7,9,10)....where mine definitely skew liberal.

    So back to the TV show politics...I suppose liberal Christians are mostly Dems and Conservative Christians are mostly GOP? hmmm...

    Seriously, all I did was maximize the importance of my view of God and minimize the importance of my stance on abortion and homosexuality. Somehow that made me less a conservative Christian and more a Pagan!:D

    Huh... even though I ticked, 'none of the above' for most answers, I came out Hindu also in that one. 10% less Pagan than NJ though and 2% less conservative! -:p

    A number of new folks around, some may wanna take a look at their results on this quiz...

    Heck it may even be time for me to give it another shot...and see how I've changed!

    I got......Jainism o_O

    I like Jainism but that kind of surprised me, after that in the list was:

    Hinduism
    Liberal Quakerism o_O (huh?)
    and Islam :D (my religion)

    I guess because I'm a "Sufi" (keep in mind all that I mentioned about it recently) aspects of it related to Jain thought. (well there's a lot of cross-pollination between Sufi and Hindu/Dharmic philosophy through their natural correlations, so I guess that's why?)

    Ya gotta look at it on the basis of not ice tidying who you are...but according to their database what percentage of their beliefs coincide with your beliefs....to me that is often refreshing.
