    Geist, try going to a UU service and see how you connect with it. experiment! reading up on religious traditions is good, but one should also bodily hunt around, go to different places and communities, and see what's there. follow what you feel drawn to, and look around. are there any UU churches near you? what about others high on your list?

    well, on a positive note, North Wales has some pretty darn cool place names.

    seriously, try on-line communities. it's not the same as going to a meeting, but you'll be able to talk with others and get information. is there any tradition on your list that you're especially interested in? i'll try to find some forums for you, if you feel that would be helpful. let me know, ok?

    Here are my results, I like how I'm so much an Orthodox Quaker;) but it said on there that Quakers supposedly are a lot like Prodestants.

    1. Mainline - Conservative Christian Protestant (96%)2. Orthodox Quaker (100%) 3. Seventh Day Adventist (87%) 4. Eastern Orthodox (85%) 5. Roman Catholic (85%) 6. Mainline - Liberal Christian Protestants (80%)7. Islam (62%) 8. Orthodox Judaism (62%) 9. Liberal Quakers (59%) 10. Bahá'í Faith (50%) 11. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (50%) 12. Unitarian Universalism (48%)13. Sikhism (46%) 14. Reform Judaism (45%) 15. Hinduism (44%) 16. Jainism (34%) 17.

Taoism (23%) 24. Neo-Pagan (23%) 25. New Age (23%) 26. Non-theist (22%) 27. Secular Humanism (20%)


    Now when I meet someone from another religion I can say, "Well, I'm 96% Prodestant, but I'm also 44% Hindu.:p That's a slightly cool thing that's worth doing.

    That was a rather fun test to take-foreversearching, the top of my profile looks almost exactly like yours! "New Age" was #1 & "Neo-pagan", (never knew what that was & now I are one:p ) Can't say i really know what "New Age" is either as to me it's such an amorphous thing don't know if there are central beliefs within it. I guess when I think of N.A. I think of a personal view that is not taken wholely from 1 established religious tradition. Have to admit, have always been conflicted on that topic-on the one hand you've got such respected folks as Huston Smith arguing against "cafeteria" spirituality & on other hand I also believe that the "spirit blows where it listeth" & each individual should honor that wind. Just darn hard to tell often if it's the wind of spirit or simply our own ego-bound desires, (that's the only cautionary note I have about "mix and match"). Have a good one, Earl

    hello:)

    i have done that test twice, several months apart and got more or less the same results both times. unfortunately i'm a bit computer illiterate and every time i tried to send my results here i lost them into a black hole:mad:

    anyway...my top score was baha'i (although actually i'm not terribly interested)

    noticeably near the top was orthodox judaism:eek:

    closely followed by islam (my home base)

    christianity was a bit further down with catholic higher than protestant (as far as i remember)

    :D Maybe you should do more of the following verse john 17;3 ;)


    This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, (JEHOVAH)and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.
