    This is a fun little exercise, but I have very little faith in it's accuracy. They left out some major belief systems that might've been interesting, too.

    1. Secular Humanism (100%)
    2. Unitarian Universalism (92%)
    3. Liberal Quakers (79%)
    4. Nontheist (70%)
    5. Neo-Pagan (70%)
    6. Theravada Buddhism (69%)
    7. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (61%)
    8. Taoism (57%)
    9. New Age (50%)
    10. Orthodox Quaker (47%)
    11. Mahayana Buddhism (47%)
    12. Reform Judaism (44%)
    13. Jainism (38%)
    14. Baha'i Faith (37%)
    15. Sikhism (37%)
    16. Scientology (31%)
    17. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (27%)
    18. New Thought (27%)
    19. Seventh Day Adventist (25%)
    20. Hinduism (23%)
    21. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (22%)
    22. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (20%)
    23. Eastern Orthodox (20%)
    24. Islam (20%)
    25. Orthodox Judaism (20%)
    26. Roman Catholic (20%)
    27. Jehovah's Witness (13%)

    It might be nice to see a longer test that starts by narrowing things down, then gets more detailed to draw more effective distinctions among the top choices. I think that would be a more useful test, and it would probably produce more intuitive results.

    This is exactly what I'm talking about. Islam is an Abrahamic religion that shares most of its basic ideas with Judaism and Christianity, so in a test like this, Christians will score higher for Islam than for certain sects and denominations of Christianity. After a few questions, the test could determine that Steph's beliefs are in line with those of the major Western religions, then proceed to more specific questions like the importance of Jesus, etc.

    I realize the test was deliberately avoiding that to some extent, trying to give people a feel for which religions most reflect their spiritual philosophies and moral beliefs, but it seemed like the test couldn't make up its mind about exactly what it wanted to be. I think you need to commit to one side or the other: make a test that's specific and primarily produces the expected results (or sheds light on appealing new possibilities), or create one that's exclusively focused on moral ideas and very basic questions (How many gods? Zero/Don't know, One, More than one) to tell people what their religion "should" be.

    Islam partly stemmed from or was, in a way, a response to Christianity really (kind of hard not to define itself somewhat by Christianity, since Islam came about in the 6th century.. Christianity had been around for hundreds of years already)...

    If you read up on Muhammad (or just the Koran in general), you see how much it wants to define itself as a rebellion towards Jewish and Christian interpretations. There are lot of passages that come down to "they said this, but what God was really saying was this...". Not to mention it borrows figures from Judaism and Christianity. Muhammad said he was visited by Gabriel (the same messenger who was sent to Mary) who basically wanted to "get the story straight".

    The top score on the list below represents the faith that Belief-O-Matic, in its less than infinite wisdom, thinks most closely matches your beliefs. However, even a score of 100% does not mean that your views are all shared by this faith, or vice versa.

    Belief-O-Matic then lists another 26 faiths in order of how much they have in common with your professed beliefs. The higher a faith appears on this list, the more closely it aligns with your thinking.

    The MBTI is a tool to help you on your self discovery. It nor any other the label can ever hope to describe you, because you are are unique and special, we all are. Any comments made regarding a group of people should be considered to be general and not ubiquitous; and no one should lose of sight of that. . Do not stereotype other people or yourself for that matter, but generalise if you must when a general example or pattern is required. And if you took the time to read this thank you

    Fascinating... I would've thought that 6 would've been higher than 5. (Being a kind of middle-ish protestant) But in any event, this came out close to what I would've expected. Also, it's good to see that this hasn't triggered a flame war of some kind.
