Perhaps the worst quiz I have ever taken

You scored as Jewish. You are a Jew.
You understand that there is something basically missing in the teachings of religion and so-called "spirituality" today. The continuity in time and dedication of the Jewish faith make the most sense to you. You may be drawn to Judaeism out of a jaded opinion of the world today, but hey, it can't be a bad thing to be one the chosen people. </td>

Note; it's not that I think Judaism beneath me- it's that I A) am not Jewish B) am not an anarchist (as anarchy breaks down when you get beyond a 'familial' level of interpersonal knowledge) C) wasn't aware that Anarchism was a religion D) am not especially Buddhist E) am curious as to why Christianity and Catholicism are different things F) whatever 'Cult' is, it sounds like where you'd likely find the religious beliefs I adhere to.
Moronically bad, this.
  • It told me I was jewish too. Even though I'm not big on tradition. What, no agnostic?
    • My suspicion is that the author of the quiz misunderstood the word 'agnostic' and/or the word 'atheist', and included 'anarchist' as a nod to what those two words so clearly mean.
  • It is indeed the worst test ever

    Everything was around 50% for me, with 65% being the top, and Christian. For someone who answered he did not believe in the Christian dogmas, that's scary.

    A)Well, that's not the issue here :)
    B):)
    C)Yep, you learned the darndest things on the web
    D) :)
    E)Because the author is an uneducated moron. Actually most Americans I talked to made the same mistake. For some reason they just don't dig the name "Protestants".
    F)Bad, bad, bad. Yep. Worst ever.
  • You scored as Buddhist. You are a Buddhist
    You basically get lost in the sea of conflicting ideas as your mind hasn't been developed to discern truth from halftruth. You entertain many philosophical ideas that don't apply to your daily life or actually fulfill you in any way. Maybe you didn't have a strong background of faith and morality growing up, which is why you have basically no convictions whatsoever. Follow your heart, it will guide you to the obvious truth and its simplicity will astonish you. Tarot cards, astrology, and witchcraft will be a temptation for you. Be careful.

    This is so wrong it's actually outright offensive. I'm not Buddhist, but aside from that, how do you get from tarot cards to Buddhism, and how is it a 'temptation'? Buddhism is certainly not a lack of conviction.

    I'd say it takes a considerable amount of conviction, after all, to douse oneself in gasoline and then set fire to oneself in the name of anti-war protests and pacifism.

    Maybe that should happen to the author of this quiz. Sensing dogmatic monotheism or something, here. Wow. REALLY bad quiz, yes.
  • Let's see: not acknowledging a vast number of the world's religions except as "Cult", not educated enough to know that Anarchism is not a religion, incredibly dismissive result for Buddhism, lackluster result for Judaism, fairly positive result for Catholicism... I don't think I need to see the result for Christianity to know that it essentially reads "Oh, isn't it SWELL to be saved?? And we're gonna save SO many more people, because EVERYONE takes online quizzes, so everyone's going to take this and learn how WRONG their religion is!! Aren't I smart for making this?? I can convert people without leaving the comfort and security of my whitebread midwestern home in between my home-school courses!!!1 ^_^"
  • Personally, I love the fact that result for Anarchist "religion" reads as follows:

    "Coochy choochy coo, what a cute little ANARCHIST we have here. You see everything as a means to an end, and that end is You. You don't understand why some saps do community service cause you wouldn't be caught dead picking up trash unless you were in an orange jumpsuit. You're also pretty angry at the world but are too self-concerned to do anything about it because you are an anarchist. Understanding this statement would practically kill you, "There is freedom in obedience." You probably also hate Bush."

    Not only is it nonsensical, it completely misunderstands anarchy and equates it with crime. Just another way to show that this person hasn't got a clue...

    Worse test EVAR!
    • Oh, and I'd also like to point out that, according to this test, Mormonism is a cult equal to Scientology. Should some one tell Tom Cruise and John Travolta?

      "Woah buddy, write goodbye letters to the family, cause you're joining a CULT! Feeling like part of a group makes you feel important. You like feeling you have access to knowledge that others don't, but you also want to convert people to your way of thinking. Be careful not to get swept into popular trends and charismatic leaders, dazzling as they may be. Pay more attention to the inner voice warning you against inherent danger. Cults most appealing to you: Scientology, Mormonism, and anything where living in the "community" is required."
  • Hi, total stranger! Where can I get the full version of that wonderful icon with the stations of the Kabbala?

    • It's from a flyleaf to Alan Moore's currently-running comic, Promethea. I laughed myself silly at it, for it amuses me vastly, and have kept the icon around for things philosophical and things Londoner.

      Please Mind the Void.
      • Oh, I'm embarrassed now, because I have that issue and was trying to remember where I'd seen something like that before... *BLUSH*

        I'm even going to order the special edition of the final issue!

        Big big bearhugs!!

        • Heh- I haven't been reading the book regularly- just have picked up friends' copies here and there. I'd been considering picking up the compilations, as the artist and author tend to get well-compensated for those above-and-beyond the basic contract.
          • I also notice we have a lot of common interests. More than I have listed in my user profile (will update that now that I think of it). Planning on moving to the SF bay area and would love to meet sometime!
  • It's clearly written by an idiot fundie Christian. I wonder what this person says about Catholicism.

    --K
    • Actually wanna know?

      Welcome to the One, Holy, CATHOLIC, and Apostolic Church! You my Friend are a Catholic. You have a strong sense of something outside of yourself and feel drawn to answer profound questions to satisfy your desires. You recognize that truth isn't self-centered or about inventing something new, but rather following the road map of your heart to a bigger picture. You are probably baptized.

      Whereas Christian came up a little less shining.

      The Good News is...you're a Christian. You my friend are a non-denominational Christian. You strive to be a better person and are generally concerned about how your actions affect other people; however, you do struggle with disobedience as it may make life uncomfortable for you. Your greatest battle will be against lukewarmedness. Dude, fight the good fight.


      Since those two seem to be the only test answers not yet represented in the threads...
  • Christian bent perhaps?

    You scored as Buddhist.

    You are a Buddhist
    You basically get lost in the sea of conflicting ideas as your mind hasn't been developed to discern truth from halftruth. You entertain many philosophical ideas that don't apply to your daily life or actually fulfill you in any way.

    It's funny though that they don't really push this way in the Jewish description.
  • I didn't bother filling that thing out honestly, but I had fun playing. If you disagree or agree entirely, it makes you choose one out of six options from the test that is most like you and sorts you based on that.

    On agreeing to all of them, just to see what they'd select out, I chose "I feel bad for poor people but they do not really concern me right now" and it said I was Buddhist.
    • Ironic, isn't it?

      For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good

      --Mark 7:14
      • Re: Ironic, isn't it?

        er, cut and paste error, above: full verse is:

        For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always
        which, in context, is saying 'you can do nice things for poor women whenever- I won't be at hand for all eternity'. i.e.: blow off the beggarwoman and pay attention to me me MEEEEEE.
