I'm mostly a secular humanist; Not so much a Jehovah's Witness


You gotta have faith.

If you've ever wondered what that wacky George Michael is singing about in that song (I'll leave an analysis of the images for another time), you can find out for yourself through the Belief-O-Matic, a fun link I found through Roger Ebert's website.

By answering just a handful of questions, the Belief-O-Matic matches you to the faiths it thinks "most closely" matches your beliefs.

Here are my results:

1. Secular Humanism (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (95%)
3. Liberal Quakers (83%)
4. Theravada Buddhism (78%)
5. Neo-Pagan (72%)
6. Nontheist (69%)
7. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (67%)
8. Taoism (60%)
9. New Age (60%)
10. Mahayana Buddhism (57%)
11. Reform Judaism (52%)
12. Orthodox Quaker (47%)
13. Jainism (45%)
14. Baha'i Faith (41%)
15. Scientology (41%)
16. Sikhism (40%)
17. New Thought (39%)
18. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (33%)
19. Hinduism (27%)
20. Islam (23%)
21. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (23%)
22. Orthodox Judaism (23%)
23. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (21%)
24. Seventh Day Adventist (19%)
25. Eastern Orthodox (14%)
26. Roman Catholic (14%)
27. Jehovah's Witness (10%)

I've been accused of being more Quaker than Mormon in the past, and this bears it out. Har, har...

  1. From a guy brought up Roman Catholic. I always knew I was like the guy on the oatmeal box. Mmm...oatmeal.
