Religion Quizzes :-)

I love the “What religion are you?” quizzes.  They never seem to get my right religion.  See for yourself:

1.  From Quizilla:

Shintoism: Shintoism is a religion based in Japan and the Japanese culture. It’s beliefs center mainly around the kami or the spirits. They believe in many of these spirits, and they also believe in worshiping and holding rituals and festivals for these spirits which they hold with honor and respect. Followers of Shintoism hold loyalty and honor in high esteem.

Maybe I got this because I am half-Japanese with a strong Japanese influence from my mother.

Definitely not a serious religion quiz but humorous. 🙂

2.  From ProProfs.com:

Buddhism: Love and tolorance is your motto. You belief in karma, and reincarnation.

Okay, maybe my Japanese upbringing influenced me here.

3.  From QuizFarm.com:

You Scored as Paganism. Your beliefs are most closely aligned with those of paganism, Wicca, or a similar earth-based religion. You may also follow a Native American religion.  Scored a 100% for Paganism, 65% for Buddhism, 60% for Hinduism, and 55% for Islam.

That one was unexpected.  Estrella!!!  Shintoism by some would be considered an earth-based religion as well.  This is not the first time I heard this described about me…

4.  From BeliefNet.com: (Probably one of the most accurate online measures of religious choice according to online sources.)

  1. Mahayana Buddhism (100%)
  2. Hinduism (89%)
  3. Neo-Pagan (88%)
  4. Theravada Buddhism (83%)
  5. Jainism (82%)
  6. New Age (82%)

Again, this is probably due to the influence of Japanese culture.  Both Japanese and Vietnamese are Mahayana Buddhists.

Personally, I consider myself a Muslim with a strong Sufi influence.  Elements of Sufism are similar to elements of Buddhism and the Hesychasm in  Christianity.
