Belief-O-Matic

Atheism's not a religion. Sorry. I know I'm splitting hairs. I don't have any religious beliefs. I do however have a set of ethical values that I try to maintain. If you don't know where you fit on the spectrum, may I suggest the "belief-o-matic."

I would have to respectully disagree with 5:13 about atheism not being a religion, but I am glad he/she brought up the belief o matic quiz on beliefnet.

Just last week I took that quiz again, and came up neopagan, closely followed by mahayana buddhism.

I have taken that quiz irregularly over the past 2 years as my religious beliefs and practices changed. Has links to lots of information about the different religions, too.

12:36- was it a choice or was it something you were born into? That is an intereresting question- I bet that most of us were simply born into our religion, and that our religion is more our identity and habits than something we rabidly believe in.

Very interesting thread! The responses definitely reinforce the diversity of the members here, a fact I was already well aware of. I am not the OP but coincidentally was online last night researching info about various world religions, trying to broaden my knowledge base and gain a better understanding of others.

I'm especially curious to know if those who answered Wiccan have family members who taught you about it or if you discovered it later in life. Up until last night I really didn't know anything about it (still don't for that matter!). According to the statistics, it seems to be rapidly growing, although is still a very small percentage of the entire world. So my other curiosity is--do you have a network of other Wiccans near you or do you feel isolated from others who share your beliefs?

Wiccan #1 here. I was born and raised Catholic, never bought into the rhetoric. I'm probably more of an atheist, but I love scaring the hell out of "devout Christians" with something that's often shouted down as satanic. Anyway, the origin of my interest arose from studying archaeology and developing a fascination with the way unrelated cultures around the planet and across time turned to natural phenomena such as seasons, solstices, and astronomy for spirituality and guidance. I'm not too heavily into it, because it is, after all, a reconstructed religion. The principles, however, are pretty wholesome and best reflect my personal belief system.

Seriously, you are way too sensitive to be hanging out on public boards. You should see some of the other topics; how about "how many times do you have sex?" or "body odor" threads, the list goes on of potentially offensive boards, YOU NEED TO RELAX. IF YOU ARE OFFENDED - LEAVE.

Spiritually Promiscuous

Born into Judiasm, parents became Unitarians when I was a child. Dabbled in Hinduism, and Wiccan. Have gone to church with Catholic friends. Lived in a Buddhist Center for 2 years. Now almost 50, I have returned to Judiasm and what I have discovered is the basis of all of these beliefs are the same, lead a good life, give back to others, protect those who need it, love one another.

Some thoughts

I have to go with the second poster a devout Agnostic leaning toward Atheist. However this is a very complicated question, although I do not believe in any organized religion, or single person with almighty powers, I do have a belief there is a force of energy that can guide us if we allow. However that choice is ours to make to listen or not to listen that is the question . Just my thoughts.

Atheist

I am an atheist, but I believe that most people benefit from religion, it gives them hope, a guideline to morality, builds friendship with people with the same common beliefs. I think the universe was made of matter and everything that is organized and appears made by a God or a higher being is compatible matter. Everything on eath is compatible with itself therefore we have a planet earth. Everything about an animal is compatible with each of its other parts therefore we have animals and so on and so on. I hope this makes sense because it does to me.

Raised Catholic, but recovering. (Haha.) I believe I'm here for a reason and all of this isn't an accident. I believe in being close to nature. I believe in loving yourself and others. I believe in trusting your instincts. I believe in the constant search for answers. I'm not scared of living, and I'm not scared of dying. I think that pretty much sums it up.

A World without Religion

"Religion" has a bad rap. Many people worship their religion rather than worhsip the God the religion was meant to deify. Ponder that one a while. I consider myself a follower of Jesus Christ. I try to pattern my life around the lessons He taught and the life He lived. I believe He was man and God in one. I believe he died for my sins and rose again. I believe he will come again.

I also respect the beliefs of others. I am not offended by this thread. I find it very interesting.

Religion doesn't divide and cause wars--people do that. Those who wish to blame religion for the wars begun by human beings over it must also give it credit for the charity it engenders. Mother Teresa, for example. Religion-inspired humanitarian aid. Shelter given by monasteries to political refugees.
And so on.

Spirituality can exist without religion and religion without spirituality, but they are not mutually exclusive. To insist so is to reveal the true level of one's spirituality. Religious people are often criticized for being judgemental, but they don't have a monopoly on prejudice and judgemental behavior.

So far this thread is completely non-offensive, no different than "Where do you live?" or "How old are you?" or "What color is your workout gear?" would be.

When I get to church ( about once a year....one of my best friends is a minister so I try to make it in once a year :-)) I go to a Unitarian Universalist church. I like the UU's. A lot...even joined for a while.

I would like to check out the Quakers.

Been in several meditation groups...Buddhist in orientation...

But the long walks...that's where I really experience soul.

Thanks for being so civil with one another, guys. I haven't ever seen a thread this humane. To be honest, I didn't have time to read all (probably most) of the postings, but they seemed very divers and polite. It is reassuring to know that we can recieve input on our health-related goals from peers with such a vast pantheon of creeds and backgrounds. And I used to think that this internet thing was just a fad! BTW I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Some of you might perfer to call me LDS or a "Mormon." That is fine. I don't find most of the nick-names too offensive. I have a personal spiritual conviction of the divinity of Christ and I feel His love for my family and everyone with whom I come in contact. OP, thanks for asking.

Don't hate him until you find out what he is all about. He is the only person who is able to save your soul.

Hey, I am not narrow minded, God is. And he revealed it in his word. Why is the bible considered the true word of God? Because no other book ever written that has claimed inspiration from God has been able to tell events in the future with pinpoint accuracy. Thats saying something. Never failed on one event to date and has more to say about this generation than any other generation to pass.

I really can understand how no one wants to hear that Christians think their beliefs are "better", but I guess it is intrinsic to Jesus freaks that if Christianity is historically / presently / eternally true then it is awesome! and also the only way to get out of here alive - (and hey if Jesus wasn't God on a mission to save us then the whole thing is as Paul said a big waste)
Honestly - if you thought it was true (The Creator was born a human who died to rescue us) you'd sing out about it too!
No offense intended - I know there are other intelligent views but
if this thread was McCain vs. Clinton vs. Obama, people would get pretty EXCITED about their personal opinions and this is a lot more important than that ! ! Thank you for your indulgence...

This is a fun thread.

I am going to take out the religion word and re-write my religion using political figures.....

I am a born again Hillary supporter. Although when I first dabbled in Clintonism I was disallusioned by the lack of definition for what having sex actually was. I have since recovered my faith completely and believe she is the one and only true defender of public health and safety.

I will admit in my time of dispair, I turned for a time to the study of McCain. I got so damn confused, however, I didn't know whether we had weapons of mass destruction or if we were just playing hide and seek in the desert.

Today we find ourselves in the end days. It is the end of a dark compaign to rob democrats of their sanity. Beware the anticlinton, OBAMA. His only mission is to midlead innocents down a path of destruction and useless voting. For him the path of confusion is clear and we will all perish if we follow.

Cling to the proven truth of Hillary, and remember even though our belief system has never been able to control a naughty husband, it will triumph over the other evils of the world and bring about life ever after the democratic convention in August.

I was brought up Catholic, but as an adult take umbrage with more than a few of its teachings. And as I've matured (haha) I've come to question the whole deal of organized religion. I definitely believe in a higher power, an afterlife, the whole nine yards, but I believe the whole idea of it is so large, so infinite, that there is no way that any one religion can have it all correct. You can't promote tolerance if you subscribe to one religion....if everyone thinks their religion is "right", then everyone else must be wrong? How can that be? I would like to think that there is a place for all of us who lead good lives and treat everyone with respect and compassion. That's what "God" really is....not necessarily some invisible man in the sky who's going to strike us with a lightning bolt if we step out of line. I would like to think that whatever the higher power is sees beyond religious divides. I live with integrity, I help others, I live morally. Am I supposed to burn someplace for all eternity because I don't go to church once a week or because I am open to the religious ideals of others?

Before I go on a bit of a tirade, I want to say that I respect a person's right to believe what they want, etc . I'm not looking to change anyone's mind, I guess I'm looking for an explanation. Having said that,I'm sorry, but when I hear people talking about accepting Jesus as their personal savior, or God being the guiding light in their hearts, that kind of stuff, it just smacks of religious radicalism. I totally understand that you believe what you believe, but what is the difference between giving yourself "over to God" and people who follow some guy who announces he's the Messiah and predicts the end of the world. Why is one supposed to be legitimate and the other just a crackpot? We see these whackjobs in the pioneer clothes who abuse their children and create a cult mentality.........they believe they're the right ones and we're all going to hell. When I hear people using all of these Jesus phrases, the impression I get is that they believe that they're "saved" , we're not, and their way is the only way. Seriously, correct me if I'm wrong.

cool thread!

I agree that there are christians like that. We are not all like that. I don't "preach at people" because I feel we have free will for a reason. I CHOOSE to be christian, but I believe that is my choice. It doesn't mean everyone has to be like me. I think the christians you are describing believe in thier hearts that they are doing the right thing. If someone asks me for ministry, they will get it. If someone doesn't have the desire to learn about Jesus, it's not up to me to beat them in the head with my bible. I am a bible thumper though :) As far as who is going to hell and who isn't ....I'm not exactly qualified to make that call.
It does kind of suck though that people usually react with anger when I tell them I'm a christian. At least there are cool threads like this one where we can just say what we are and appreciate and respect others beliefs.

But if a person doesn't believe in Jesus, are they wrong? Isn't anyone's personal belief the "truth" in their eyes? Can a Christian have their own beliefs and still say that a Jew or a Muslim is going down the "right path"? I guess my question is, is there room in an organized religion for a person to say, "This is what I believe to be true, but there's always a possibility that these other guys have got it right?" What I don't get about organized religion is that you have to subscribe to just one way of thinking. The Christian thinks the Bible is the absolute truth, the Jew thinks it is the Torah, the Muslim thinks it's the qoran (sp. I know), and all have thousands of years of history to support its claims. So who's right?

I'm glad we can have a civilized discsussion on this thread about differing opinions without descending into namecalling, by the way. Thanks!

tolerance and mutually exclusive propositions

okay, I know this is a "poll" but...

1:04 - The answer to your question is simple. Mainstream religons have basic assertions that are "fundamental" to their very core (i.e. Jesus was God -Mohamed was THE highest prophet, X or Y Hindu God exists, Buddhism - reincarnation thru relinquishment of all desire exists, LDS - Joseph Smith received angelic divine revelation, or in Judaisim there is one God not three...etc.) and these are logically mutually exclusive.
We find this most in Christianity where the absolute core of the whole thing is the actual historical life death and resurrection of a man who was physically God in flesh. That is impossible to mesh with other religious statements.

Your question is like asking (when we are in the car) - can we both turn left, turn right, gun it and hit the brakes all at the same time? - no those are very different mutually exclusive choices. But that doesn't mean we can't be civil ;)

9:16 thanks for the point of view. You state, "if everyone thinks their religion is "right", then everyone else must be wrong? How can that be?"

-because each religion claims BIG things that are either true or false, and also if they are true make the claims of the other simply impossible.

very glad for the civilized discussion too ;)

I believe an above poster said it well when they said most people serve their religion more than their God(s). I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, but I believ that churches once built on good intention have become the path to Hell (not literally)... Some teach intolerence and superiority, hidden behind a message of reaching out to "heathens and the immoral". I love my life and do not follow the "straight and narrow" taught to me in bible camp, I do live by a life philosophy to "Do as little bad and as much good" and "Sacrifice is beautiful and necessary" , just as Jesus did.

very cool link

Ok, so I am the 2nd spiritual promiscuous (still makes me smile) who posted yesterday 12:17AM and I found this cool link at the top of the page (an actual Google ad link) to Belief net which is kind of a cool web site.

The link is below and it is a belief-o-matic quiz (which also makes me smile). I just had to take it. What can I say, I was raised by scientists and we love a good test.

ANYWAY, I would recommend taking it for everyone because it gives you the whole list of MANY possibilities and a percentage for how you might just match up to a particular belief system (or religion).

I matched up to the Unitarian Universalists 97% who I really like (notice I don't say I am one...but dang, if I were going to be SOMETHING, I'd hedge my bets with them on most days...they are DECENT folks and like to read a lot...just like me). Not a bad match up!

However, here is the NICE surprise... I match up 100% to the liberal Quakers...and if you look back at my posting, I said I would like to check them out.

Wow! Talk about serendipity (something UU's and scientists really like). So maybe I need to look up some liberal Quakers. Always thought I would like Quaker meeting which seems somewhat like meditation which I really like...which is like a walk in the woods.

Any other test takers in this crowd? What did you find out?

You are all beautiful people. Thank you for your kindness, even with question.

WASP: white anglo-saxon pagan

That's what I claimed for awhile during my hipster years. Yet as I get older I feel the tug of the religion of my childhood. That good 'ol guilt never quite seemed to go away. hehe

I'm an atheist which means I don't have a religion preference.

PP - don't you mean something else



A (not) the (God) ist (person) means you assert that there is definitely NOT a God that exists, aren't you something else?

Anyone who is offended by this thread is reading it by their own choice and is thus totally responsible themselves for their own reaction to it.
I am offended by people who get on this tread and state that they are offended by it.

there are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same

I always get a chuckle from Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or Pastafarianism. Makes me smile when I see folks refer to that.

LOVE the "belief-o-matic" site! I take that quiz, and others like it, about once a year it seems. There is one for politics as well.

Interesting thread. Thanks.

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
