    choosing

    From Louis...
    If I ever feel the need, I would probably choose "Humanist", but I don't need it yet !
    I'm still trying to decide which is closer to the TRUTH -
    I am seeing the world as REALY IS by accepting the
    clear evidence of my sensory perception -
    Or believers are seeing the world as they WANT to see by
    deliberately corrupting their own sensory perception.
    I am 100% happy to retain my present viewpoint
    but it does seem a stretch to think I'm right and so many millions of people are wrong and don't know it...

    Interesting mix this one came up with: Neo-Pagan, Baha'i, Mahayana Buddhist. (That's what I get from talking to Vaj all the time. Not sure where the Neo-Pagan comes from tho!)

    Must have skewed it's formulaic "personal God" question - I needed to be able to check more than one answer! Guess my God concept is somewhat more abstract than the writers of the quiz would expect from a Baha'i?

    I did this one before - The "Belief-o-Matic" at BeliefNet. It was more accurate when I did it a couple of years ago. Hmmmm.

    And I am a Unitarian Universalist so it was pretty accurate for me! But the questions did not really get at my beliefs at all. I guess I just defaulted into the Unitarians ... its a pretty big camp!

    I've done this test a couple of times.
    The most recent one had me at:

    Mahayana Buddhist - 100%

    followed by Theravada, so there you go! Bang on target.
    And guess who's right at the bottom of my list Mohsin?... :D

    I think the most difficult one to test for is Taoism. I think they don't even look at your answers, just so long as you chose , 'Not very important' for all of them. :D

    Hi PP, and nice you see you pop back in. Hm, looks like a paradigm shift in operation there - you turning to the Buddhist path now? :)

    And will that that mean we call you BP? ;)
