    We've done this a couple of times in the Alley, but it's a good idea to start this forum off by summing up category our beliefs mainly fall into from a religious perspective.

    Follow the link below, take the test, and post your results in this thread. Then we can get down to understanding each other better.

    So here's the link:

    Looks like you'll have to paste the link in your browser until we get this sorted out.

    EDIT: BB code is On. Link works now.

    The best I can tell is that you're either a very liberal atheist, or you might believe in a god but you pay no mind to religion, at least organized religion, at all for the most part. I'd doubt that you're a Jesus freak. This you already know, but it's good for people to get a perspective of you in this format. Helps me try to narrow down what kinds of presuppositions you might hold so I could ask more direct questions of you or whoever else posts here.


    And no, I won't be summing everybody up. I'll be posting my own results though when I go through this quiz again myself.

    I don't even know what a liberal is, but you hit the religion nail directly on the head.

    I always tell people that there might be some all-knowing, all-powerful force that's beyond or comprehension, but that I don't think anyone set religion has the right idea

    Do you think that if God exists, he's unknowable, and/or that questions about him or "it" cannot possibly be answered in any sufficient way... like he's some incomprehensible force?

    Just for the sake of it I'll presume that you probably find it difficult to believe that there exists a personal God that cares whether or not you know him.

    I think "god" was created because our ancestors wanted a reason as to why the Earth does things. It's like the destruction of Pompey. Ancient man didn't understand there were chemical processes that caused the volcano to erupt, so they give it to some all-powerful being. Same way that almost all the religions on Earth include the flood in their history

    If there is a God, he doesn't put much thought into the choices we make on Earth. Earth is our hell, Earth is our torment. If a God would see fit to grant us with "freedom of choice," then I can't see that same God punishing us for our choices, because everything we do is because he gave us the choice to make our own decisions

    Unitarian Universalism is a religious community characterized by support for a "free and responsible search for truth and meaning".[1] Unitarian Universalists do not share a creed; rather, they are unified by their shared search for spiritual growth and by the belief that an individual's theology is a result of that search and not obedience to an authoritative requirement. Unitarian Universalists draw on many different theological sources and have a wide range of beliefs and practices.
    Historically, both Unitarianism and Universalism had roots in the Christian faith. Contemporary Unitarian Universalists do not necessarily subscribe to the historic beliefs of Unitarianism and Universalism, espousing a rather hands-off approach to religion, whereby the followers can be atheist, theist, or any point in between.
    Unitarian Universalism became organized as a religious group in 1961 with the establishment of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), a consolidation of the American Unitarian Association, established in 1825, and the Universalist Church of America, established in 1866. It is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, and serves churches mostly in the United States. The Canadian Unitarian Council became an independent body in 2002.[2]
