From what little I've read about it, it exists mainly in India. I think it's an offshoot of Hinduism, and combines ideas from Hinduism and Buddhism. The guiding principle of the religion is ahimsa -- nonviolence toward all living things. This requires, among other things, following a vegetarian diet, and I believe that some Jains won't even eat root vegetables, on the basis that doing so kills the plant (as opposed to, say apples, where you can pull one from a tree and the tree still lives). Seems to be a very strict, ascetic tradition.

27. Seventh Day Adventist (14%)


I'm not at all surprised by New Thought being 100%, even though I've met people from New Thought churches (Unity, Divine Science, Religious Science) who have beliefs I disagree with. The Unity church comes closest to my personal beliefs than any other I've found, and I've spent some time involved with Unity churches. I tired of them, not because of their precepts, but because of the petty social issues that seem to permeate most churches, of any faith. So, it's been years since I've attended, but I still maintain my spiritual principles, and observe them in my own way.

Unitarian Universalism came out on top for me. What I was born into, Reform Judaism, came in at number 8. Clicking on the "Click here for info" links to any of these religions/belief systems yields interesting reading, assuming that what is written is accurate.

They are so strict about non-violence to all living things, the really devout Jains carry a broom and sweep the ground everywhere they walk in order to avoid stepping on any bugs.

So, the "anti-Tribute" is a Mormon? Is he out doing missionary work right now? Is this your evil twin - separated at birth???

And your results would make the REAL Tribute a Taoist - I smell a book - "The Tao of Trib" . . . :jestera:


So, just what kind of services ARE you conducting tonight? Should I bring my Book of Mormon, my taoist writings, or just some Nag Champa and a willingness to try something new? ;)

Y, I think the quiz looks at how your answers compare with the teachings of various groups/religions. So, even if you don't believe in God, you might believe in doing good works, or non-violence, for example, so it would give you a partial match/percentage with groups who share those precepts.

That's my impression of how it works, anyway.

Whoa... slightly different. Orthodox Judaism? Interesting, considering I've always been Mainline - Conservative Christian Protestant (well, since I found Christianity in my early 30's. I was raised agnostic).

Hmm, I attempted to figure out your "point" for, oh, I dunno...3, 4 seconds. You don't have to tell it to me, unless for some odd reason, you feel the burning need to. And if you really, really want to see my entire result, you can pretend you're me (your secret fantasy at last fulfilled) and take the quiz again. ;) :p

Yeah, I think that's about right. Besides, Y got high scores in Unitarian Universalism, which doesn't compel its followers to believe in a deity, and Theravada Buddhism, which is surely one of the world's most non-theistic religions. (Not atheistic; it's just that belief in a deity doesn't enter into the equation.)

My only gripe with the quiz is I wish it made a distinction between atheist and agnostic, 'cause they aren't the same thing.

Fascinating to see the range of results among the Yestalkers!
