Interesting. I think all religions suck. Ritual is the doorway to the opression of thought.


Here's what I don't get:
If God wanted and/or needed our worship, wouldn't God have let us know that we should. It seems sort of hypocritical of God's nature: give the humans free will and demand that they worship you.

1. Secular Humanism (100%) ...in a nutshell.
2. Unitarian Universalism (90%) ...yeah, right.
3. Atheists and Agnostics (83%) ...O.K.
4. Theravada Buddhism (69%) ...Thera who??

I too am skeptical of some of the answers. For example this answer is offered for the question about the causes of wrong-doing:

No supernatural or spiritual reasons. Human nature, psychology, sociology, criminology, etc. explain wrongdoing. Or not sure. Or not important.

How does not sure or not important rank as being identical to what precedes it? The questionarre is full of bogus catch-alls such as this.

Hmm... maybe because I am a "Tao-Buddhist" ??

I was 95% for Neo-Pagan too... guess I'll have to start doing some reading on that...

Was it just me, or could you see the Vatican giving out similar surveys during the Renaissance/Reformation??

That's weird, I guess today I'm a Hinduist. hehe
I just changed the priority levels (I forgot what I put before anyways). This thing is quite fun actually. If I put slightly more weight on issue than before, I'm a totally different religion. Woohoo!!!


1. Hinduism (100%)
2. Mahayana Buddhism (83%)
blah

Is there a way to just pick the religion with the most vacation days?

Ooo! There's a good idea!

Create a religion that has a holiday 360 days out of the year. Vacatianity. Yes. And we don't fight in wars. And we don't pay taxes. And we use all sorts of psychedelics in our rituals. And we don't believe in exams, except doctors exams. And we don't believe in bureaucracy. And we don't believe in paying too much for gas.

Any other necessary beliefs?

I think I'll work on starting this baby up.
