I have no idea how I got Sikhism (100%) They believe in "Constant rebirth until salvation from God is obtained." Um... Yeah, I don't believe that.

Haha. That thing makes me seem like a big hippy. Unitarian Universalism sounds like an interesting religion, though I've never heard of it before... kinda seems like they believe in whatever they feel like.

I like the inclusion of things such as different types of buddhism, unorthodox faiths like unitarian universalism, the money-grubbing beliefs of scientology (but not the free zone) and questions that hint to philosophies such as spinozism yet lack it... And still no differentiation between strong atheist, weak atheist, strong agnostic, or weak agnostic.

Those being, a strong atheist believes in no possibility of the existence of god(s), a weak atheist accepts that there is no god(s) and often defers to scientific methodology (if we prove it exists, I'll believe it, otherwise reread the definition of naturalism or scientific positivism.) A strong agnostic believes that the existence of god(s) is unknowable and a weak agnostic believes that they do not know whether the god(s) exist.


This slightly bothers me because five of the philosophical views that are most in tune with my beliefs aren't even represented.


Edit: Oh yeah, I fall under weak atheist. There's a terse wikipedia writeup on weak/strong atheism and there is a much longer wikipedia page about agnosticism, and I've simplified the views a bit but presented the majority of their claims.

Pastafarianism is only actually practiced as a religion by a few remote groups that wish to obtain tax-exempt status. (They are rather ignorant on what tax-exemption actually applies to and think that they can just pay "no taxes" if they claim their regular job's income as the income for being a pastor of pastafarianism.) It's amusing to me that these people are seeking religious tax exemption without understanding what it applies to.

Catholic 100%? Really? I don't believe in the divinity of Mary. That alone drops Catholicism down a few notches, but they don't ask that question. Definitely Eastern Orthodox 1.
