A Better Belief Quiz
This quiz from BeliefNet is considerably more accurate and well thought out than the silly one I posted last week.
I think we've passed it around here before, but it's been years and I'll bet many of us haven't taken it.

Warning: BeliefNet assumes no legal liability for the ultimate eternal fate of your soul.

PS: For what it's worth, I came out as a full fledged "Mainline to Conservative Christian / Protestant."
That makes me 90% compatible with the Catholics, but only 88% compatible with the Orthodox Quakers. ;) Oh, and I've more in common with Islam (62%) than Mormons (50%) Or Liberal Quakers for that matter (46%)!

re: A Better Belief Quiz
Didn't care for this quiz all that much. On a number of questions I found that my answer would be "care very much that one of these x statements is true, but not that much which one of them is true".

1. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (100%)
2. Orthodox Quaker (93%)
3. Eastern Orthodox (92%)
4. Roman Catholic (92%)
5. Seventh Day Adventist (84%)
6. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (82%)
7. Islam (69%)
8. Orthodox Judaism (69%)
9. Liberal Quakers (54%)
10. Bahá'í Faith (50%)

Here's Me. Could it be that I am in the right denomination? That's kinda scary . . .
I'll admit several of the questions were rather iffy--could have gone a couple of ways. Or maybe I didn't understand them properly.

1. Orthodox Quaker (100%)
2. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (94%)
3. Seventh Day Adventist (89%)
4. Eastern Orthodox (87%)
5. Roman Catholic (87%)
6. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (77%)
7. Islam (58%)
8. Orthodox Judaism (58%)
9. Liberal Quakers (57%)
10. Bahá'í Faith (51%)

Wow, i REALLY did not expect myself to be Quaker, but once I honestly answered I was against violence, I had a strong suspicion.

Hmmm... trying to figure out why you guys are all more Quaker than me. Dan admitted that he hadn't answered the anti-violence questions in a classically Quaker matter, so that probably isn't it. Perhaps it was the question or two about sacraments and observations such as baptism. I may have answered those in a more Catholic manner than Quaker.
Y'know, David occasionally jokes that he's more Catholic than 90% of the Catholics in America. According to this quiz, I may be too. :)

re: A Better Belief Quiz
So this is frightening... from one angle and encouraging from another, because it means there is basis for starting a discussion (based upon agreement of 50% or more) for the following belief systems. At the same time, I rate quite high as a Mormon. Perhaps I joined the wrong mission organization?
I'm encouraged to think that starting a conversation with Orthodox, Catholics and Muslims is definitely not out of the question. These are the people in my neighborhood!


1. Orthodox Quaker (100%)
2. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (97%)
3. Seventh Day Adventist (92%)
4. Eastern Orthodox (79%)
5. Roman Catholic (79%)
6. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (67%)
7. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (54%)
8. Islam (52%)
9. Orthodox Judaism

re: A Better Belief Quiz
Some of the responses at the beginning were too similar to really understand how they were different. But I guess I am at the right place, or rather, maybe baptists are more like quakers than we realize...

1. Orthodox Quaker (100%)
2. Seventh Day Adventist (97%)
3. Eastern Orthodox (97%)
4. Roman Catholic (97%)
5. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (96%)
6. Orthodox Judaism (71%)
7. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (66%)
8. Hinduism (64%)
9. Islam (64%)
10. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (63%)

re: A Better Belief Quiz
I think you probably joined the right mission, Katy. Although your extremely high rating as an Orthodox Quaker gives me some ideas as to where would be a good place to attend church when you get back to the states . . .

By the way, happy birthday, what, two days ago? Are you actually 30 now? Maybe I wasn't supposed to give that away.
