Too Much In Common

Its kinda scary, I have more in common with Liberal Quakers than what I rationally choose to believe, nontheism (or more specifically, atheism.) And the religion to which I have most emotional and experiential affinity, Mahayana Buddhism scores pretty low - which I actually expected given some of the mumbo jumbo of Mahayana Buddhism about reincarnation and karma.

Go check out where you sit at Belief-O-Matic. Here's the full breakdown for me:

I take it there's no chance of you converting to Jehovah's Witness, eh?

What is scarier to me is that Scientology ranks that high.

While I have never really pursued it, Quakerism has always has some appeal to me- the sense of community without the religious dogma.
