Here is a personal belief test that I found:

http://www.beliefnet.com/story/76/story_7665_1.html

It basically asks you what your beliefs are about God, spirituality, ethics, morality, afterlife, etc. and then judges which religious (or non-religious) beliefs you have the most in common with.

Here were my results:

1. Mahayana Buddhism (100%)
2. Neo-Pagan (97%)
3. Hinduism (89%)
4. New Age (85%)
5. Unitarian Universalism (84%)
6. Jainism (83%)
7. Theravada Buddhism (83%)
8. Liberal Quakers (77%)
9. Sikhism (71%)
10. Taoism (69%)
11. Reform Judaism (63%)
12. New Thought (59%)
13. Bah'a'i Faith (59%)
14. Scientology (56%)
15. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (56%)
16. Orthodox Quaker (52%)
17. Secular Humanism (50%)
18. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (43%)
19. Orthodox Judaism (42%)
20. Islam (35%)
21. Seventh Day Adventist (28%)
22. Nontheist (27%)
23. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (21%)
24. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (21%)
25. Jehovah's Witness (12%)
26. Eastern Orthodox (12%)

This was an interesting, if general, quiz. It gave me some things to think about because it ranked my chosen religion much lower than I thought it would, and ranked me high in some religions I never really gave weight to. After reading the desciption it gives of Taoism, I understand that it's another example of Western conception being applied to Eastern thought. That always creates incongruities.

You're quite welcome! Cool

Yeah, the description of Buddhism and Hinduism are also inaccruate in several ways. From the way they described it, they almost made Buddhism, Jainism and Daoism sound like atheism and they almost made Hinduism and Sikhism sound like theism.

That's why I don't enjoy reading Western descriptions of Eastern religions. They are always filtered through Western thinking (Classical Theism/Materialistic Skeptical Atheism). If an Eastern religion does not fit in one of these molds (which most of them don't), they try to force-fit in the other. Hinduism uses the term "God" (although the Hindu definition of "God" is drastically different than the Western definition of "God"), so it's force-fitted into the "Classical Theism" category. Buddhism, Jainism and Daoism avoid the term "God" because of the loaded connotations that go along with it, and Western scholars automatically assume that means it must be an atheism.

Roll Eyes

Westerners don't seem to understand anything that doesn't preach a human-like God sitting outside of the universe completely seperate from you and I; or anything that doesn't preach that there is absolutely no god of any kind, there is only matter, and we all rot once we die and nothing else.

That is so very true. I was first drawn to Taoism during a philosophy class in college. The only thing that bothered me was that it seemed to have no conception of God. I've never been an athiest or agnostic. I've always known that God was real. I was just never sure how to get in contact.
Taoism fit me like a glove, except the apparent absence of God. I didn't know at the time that my Western text book was written by Western minds that just didn't get it. It wasn't until years later when I read the Tao Te Jing for myself (finding the most direct translation took some time) that I could see God was most definitely there.

Ahh yes, the Strict Father Model of Morality. The old man with a long white beard sitting on a throne, waiting to judge your sins after death.

You know, it never worked for me. Just can't get my brain around it. Big Grin

PS. Did your Belief-O-Matic score come out the way you think it should have?

Come on EP,
You know that this is over stated. If you haven't already, you will encounter other conceptions of the Divine in the Western tradition that don't fit this - Spinoza, Leibniz, Fichte, Schelling, Tillich, Whitehead, Hartshorne.

Granted, you are not going to hear these folks cited from your average pulpit, but it is nevertheless, part of the tradition.

I know what you mean! When I left Christian Fundamentalism (I used to be a Christian Fundamentalist, sad to say sck), one of the first things I struggled with was the question of whether or not there was a God.

I immediately began reading up on mystical Western traditions (esoteric/mystic forms of Christianity, Islam and Judaism) and I was immediately blown away. I was awe-inspired by the depth of their definition of "God". I was especially moved when I read the Bible in original and authentic Aramaic/Hebrew translations. The Bible read completely differently than the corrupted English translation. This eventually led me to research Hinduism deeper (Even as a Fundie, I always had a skeptical and inquizzitive mind, and I had researched other religions, but never seriously. I only researched them to find holes in them and poke bigger holes in to reinforce my own narrow-minded faith) and I was blown away by what I read in the Vedas and the Bhagavad Gita ["The Song of God"]. I was especially moved this line about Brahman ("God"), "And I am always closer to you than even your hands and feet." And the term Tat Tvam Asi [That Thou Art] to describe God. Smile

Later I got into other Eastern religions like Taoism [Daoism], Jainism and Buddhism. As a Christian, I had heard that Buddhism, and the other two were supposedly "atheistic religions", which of course is a contradiction in and of itself. When I researched it on my own, I found that all three of those religions had elaborate stories of gods/goddesses/angels/demons/spirits/titans/ghosts, etc. Then I read several Western descriptions that claimed, "Buddhism is an atheistic religion that does not refer to God but has many gods that are not all-powerful". That made no effing sense, in Western jargon, "atheism" means the denial of ALL gods, even lower case "g" gods.

Then I started to read the Pali Cannon, the Lotus Sutras, the Agamas and the Dao De Jing for myself. The Jain Agamas claimed that freed souls are God, and the Buddhist sutras referred to Buddha as "Lord" and ascribed him with God-like powers (in some stories, he even asserted himself above the gods). Then in college, I made a friend who was originally from China and I talked to him about Buddhism. When I asked him whether or not Buddhism is "atheistic", he asked, "Who told you that?" When I said "scholars", he laughed and told me certain Buddhist terms to reserach (Dharmakaya, Anatman, Anicca, Shunyata, Nirvana, Dharma, Karma).

The results blew me away. Nirvana, Shunyata and Dharmakaya were described as being eternal, holding all things in them, being omni-present and holding all power. This was certainly not "atheism". I found that Buddhism, Daoism and Jainism often avoided using the term "God" for a simple reason: they feel it is an inept word to describe Ultimate Reality, and it is often taken to mean (by some more fundamentalistic Hindus and by Western theists alike) an all-powerful human-like entity.

These religions certainly do have "God" in them, if by "God" one means Ultimate Reality.

LOL, so to Westerners, you either believe in an old White man in the sky with a long beard sitting in a throne, or you believe there is nothing higher than Humanity and believe that you live once and die and that's it. Wow, what advanced and profound choices. Roll Eyes And Westerners pride themselves in being so "advanced" and "philosophical". Roll Eyes

Oh of course. I never said that Western mystics didn't exist. Smile I was simply stating that they are not recognized by most Western theists, and not recognized by Western atheists either. They are viewed as "heretics" by many Western theists, and viewed as "crazy" or "superstitious lunatics" by Western atheists.


Paul Tillich was viewed as a heretic by Protestants, and Baruch Spinoza was viewed as an atheist by Jews of his day. Western theism and atheism alike pretty much accept Cartesian dualism (atheism just denies the "soul" part and embraces only "matter" and makes "mind" a function of "matter", theism accept both parts but makes "matter" a subserviant function/entrapment of "soul"/"mind").
