  • I imagine that is because instead of blindly believing, Atheists actively investigate religion/s before rejecting it/them.
  • Or just quite enjoy going "you really believe that ...... BWAHAHAHA"

    I am not impressed with test
  • 30, Atheist here as well.

    Got mixed up as to which Christian sect believes redemption comes through faith alone, and i've never heard of the great awakening.

    Indeed.
  • I'm an agnostic . I got 30 as well.
  • 31 correct. O YA.

    Uh huh. And creationists really deeply get into evolutionary biology before deciding Jesus rode velociraptors to heaven.

    I quit after the first Buddhist question was wrong.


    Nirvana is NOT the state of being free from suffering. It's complete freedom from the cycle of death and rebirth. There's levels to the cycle that are in fact free from mere suffering but still part of the thing.
  • You don't get it, subby, there are no hardcore, militant/soft, tolerant atheists. There are only atheists, and the fact you announced you are an atheist makes you a militant atheist forcing your atheism on religious people everywhere.

    Still

    30 Correct
    2 Wrong You answered 30 of 32 questions correctly for a total score of 94%.

    One I got genuinely wrong, the other my finger slipped. Honest, it did :(

    Atheist, 31, didn't get the Great Awakening one either.

    For the redemption through acts/faith, just remember that Catholics are obligated to go to confession, mass, communion, etc. They need to complete those acts for salvation in addition to faith.

    Granted, the actual belief systems are more complicated, but it's an easy shorthand to remember which is which.

    Voodoo has the best take on this. The BIG god used to live on earth. But someone (another god) kept stealing his sandals. One day, he got fed up with that and said "Screw you guys, I'm goin' home." and left the loa in charge of godly duties here.

    This meshes nicely with the Iroquois cult of the Stranger, who was another godly being in the world but not the creator. That one's actually funny and the whole cult itself is something I'd like to join. Cutting a mask from a living tree sounds amazingly spiritual.
  • Meh. I've met plenty of Christians to know the Bible a hell-of-a-lot-better than I do. But then, I don't really need to be super-knowledgeable in the Bible to know that a lot of it is pure mythology.

    My opinion may not be applicable here though, since I'm 'Atheist Light (See 'Agnostic')'.
  • The question about agnostics is wrong. Agnostics believe the question of god's existence is fundamentally unknowable. It's not just they don't know, it's that they can't know.
  • 29 correct, I messed up on the books in the old testament, and the one about the great awakening, and what the main religion of Indonesia was.

    Which is of course similar to the Gnostic Christian claim that the true creator (the Urge) has nothing to do with anything other than the act of creation; it is the lesser god, the Demiurge, who shaped the world and is intrinsically flawed. As a result, all the contents of creation are permanently separated by the Demiurge from true knowledge of the true god unless that true god bestows it upon them (i.e. enlightenment cannot be attained, only given).

    Most atheists are atheists light. Atheists heavy are fairly rare. And I admin'd one of the largest atheists message boards back in the day. Trust me. :)
  • It uses the common, and completely wrong, meaning of agnostic. Theism and atheism are about belief, gnosticism and agnosticism are about knowledge. Agnosticism is not a middle ground between theism and atheism, but rather a statement about whether the question of God is knowable or unknowable. One may be either an agnostic theist or an agnostic atheist as it is fully compatible with both forms of belief.

    The quiz had a few things wrong because they used common perception instead of actual definition.

    /still interesting
  • 30. I swear I thought they had changed the whole body and blood thing to a symbolic act...I can't remember what the other one was.
  • Atheist: 31 and I dispute the one I got "wrong." Both Buddhists and Hindus seek Nirvana.
