Philosophy Forums was hacked on September 6th. Due to the hacker, everything between July 24th and September 6th is permanently missing. Unfortunately, automated backups had to be turned off months ago because they were crashing the server. We're evaluating how to stop this from happening again. You may be able to find your own posts in a google cache to re-post them, if you want to.

It is up to you to provide a reason for us to be interested...


I would be interested in you listing your opinions and beliefs.
Here is a site you may be interested in called belief O matic.

Below is the results of mine and I think they are reasonably accurate for me IMHO:
How did the Belief-O-Matic do? Discuss your results on our message boards.

1. Secular Humanism (100%) nod

2. Unitarian Universalism (98%) nod

3. Theravada Buddhism (84%) disapproval

4. Liberal Quakers (83%) (a liberal quaker lived next door to me once and I was surprised just how much his beliefs measured up to mine, so that one gets a nod) nod

5. Nontheist (74%) :

6. Neo-Pagan (72%) nod

7. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (69%)

8. New Age (63%)

9. Taoism (60%)

10. Mahayana Buddhism (59%)

11. Reform Judaism (54%)

12. New Thought (46%) disapproval (I would have rated that a little higher)

14. Orthodox Quaker (43%)

15. Scientology (41%)

16. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (37%)

Here are my "belief" results from three different online surveys posted on a 2006 thread titled "What religion are you REALLY?" More or less these results follow consistently from the intellectual commitment mentioned at the bottom of post no. 2 above.
