    Same here. :D


    I actually feel UU shouldn't be in there: everyoen seems to get it, and it's so varied that everyone can pretty much believe whatever one wants that, well, it's kind of annoying.


    I usually get something like:

    Besides Sikhism, and Reform Judaism, I usually get one of the following:

    Hinduism
    UU (obviously)
    Mahayana Buddhism
    or Neopaganism

    Not surprising :) I have taken this quiz a number of times, always get the same results. The very first time I took it I got Quaker but I didn't realize the priority placement made a difference, but it does.

    Secular Humanism — 100%
    UU — 91%
    Nontheism — 88%

    Since I put so much weight on the questions about theism/atheism and very little on ethical issues, I find the ranking of UU higher than nontheism very odd. It suggests a badly designed system. Also, that I didn't get 100% nontheism is also very odd.

    My results were:

    Your Top 3 Faith Match Profiles Are:
    1. Anti-Christ (100%)
    2. Infidel (94%)
    3. Heretic (88%)


    That may have been a misprint. Upon review the results were:

    Your Top 3 Faith Match Profiles Are:
    1. Secular Humanism (100%)
    2. Unitarian Universalism (94%)
    3. Theravada Buddhism (88%)

    I agree, it doesn't have enough options and questions.

    BUT,

    It appears that it is the best.
