My Religious Views, according to www.beliefnet.com

This has all the links to where you can read up on the many faiths I assume you’ve never heard about. Not that many surprises here, which means their algorithm is fairly decent, after all, but there are a few interesting observations. Like how my actual faith, religion of my forefathers is number 25 on the list, 3rd last, leading only Roman Catholics and the Jehovah’s Witnesses (blech). And how a faith I’d never heard of has an apparent 100% compatibility. And how there are such things as liberal quakers. And how, contrary to my fears (see Pascal’s Wager) nontheism is only 9th, with 64%.  I advise everyone to take this, by the way, which is not something I usually do… suggest and mention entertaining possibilities,yes, but advise, very rarely. It can set you thinking about what you believe, and if its even remotely close to what you as well as other people think you believe.
