Internet Tests: The Religion Edition

Reading the latest entertaining screed over at the Malcontent and also seeing the release of The Golden Compass and its unavoidable yet stupid-in-context controversy, I started thinking about what I actually believed in, as in matters of faith and spirituality. Then I got bored and looked up religion tests on the Internet, Check it out!

Your Score: Wiccan

Holy Crap! You're taking -31 souls with you to hell!

-55 to -20

On the plus side: You dont believe in god. But you believe in Mother Earth, Mystic Energies beyond standard scientific energies, and you may even believe in or practice a little magick. So you're probably one groovy funky and fun kinda dude/dudette.

On the negative: you could just be a stoner looking for an excuse to get high with your 'coven'. Because your a dreamer who doesn't want to admit what reality is really like.

And here is the religious leader I am most like. Yeah, I have no clue, either:

Your Score: Helena Blavatsky

You two would probably really get along!

Founder of the Theosophical Society

"The Path that leadeth on is lighted by one fire - the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain."

Actually, that first one was a joke test. I did take a more serious one, and came out as a Unitarian Universalism kind of guy. Of course, basing a choice of religion on an internet test is like basing it on a moldy old book that nobody can seem to translate right, I mean, a creepy old guy in a fancy building that tells you you are going to burn in hell for even existing (dammit, okay) on a bad sci-fi writer's ramblings. There. Wait, what? Dammit!

I always kinda thought I was close to Buddhist, except that I will eat a cow in a heartbeat.

Also, it is an old link, but still thought it was appropriate. It is an article about the lack of actual knowledge of religions in America. I am of the mindset that this is part of the problem: if people don't know jack about their religion or others, no wonder they actually believe the ass nuggets most 'religious' leaders are spouting today. Hell, people still think "cleanliness is next to godliness" is in the Bible. Really!
