I had very similar results with secular humanist 100% at the top.

Secular Humanism, followed by the Quakers and Theravada Buddhism. So, pretty close to yours.

very similar results, though i have to say the belief.net questions could skew answers -- they were written very poorly for non-Theists...

1. Secular Humanism (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (89%)
3. Liberal Quakers (78%)
4. Nontheist (74%)
5. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (66%)
6. Neo-Pagan (66%)

Pretty close too, but a bit more Taoist:

1. Secular Humanism (100%)
2. Unitarian Universalism (95%)
3. Liberal Quakers (85%)
4. Theravada Buddhism (80%)
5. Nontheist (76%)
6. Neo-Pagan (69%)
7. Taoism (69%)
8. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (68%)
9. Orthodox Quaker (60%)
10. Reform Judaism (57%)
11. Mahayana Buddhism (57%)
12. New Age (54%)
13. Baha'i Faith (48%)
14. Jainism (47%)
15. Sikhism (46%)
16. Scientology (43%)
17. New Thought (40%)
18. Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (35%)
19. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (32%)
20. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (31%)
21. Islam (30%)
22. Orthodox Judaism (30%)
23. Seventh Day Adventist (29%)
24. Hinduism (29%)
25. Eastern Orthodox (22%)
26. Roman Catholic (22%)
27. Jehovah's Witness (7%)

I like Taoism. The first verse of their main text says (roughly) "this book is bullshit".

Similar to y'all... which bothers me. I don't like any of their choices, not even Secular Humanism. Their questions are annoying (I say that both as an atheist and as someone who has taught methodology), and their instructions worse. (plus any quiz where I check off "no god", and somehow I am less than 100% atheist is unclear on the subject.)

Mine were the same as yours, only the percentage had a few percent variation. Of course, this is a self-selecting sample - if I enjoy your blog (and I do), it means we have similar (scientifically-oriented) outlooks. If Rush Limpdick's website had readers take the quiz, the results would be a wee bit different (ya think?). Although I hate to believe I have even a minuscule portion of Conservative Christian, Mormon, or Catholic (I once was one) tendencies (other than breathing).
Keep up the good work!

Again, quite similar although I actually managed a 0% for Jehoah's Witness, which is nice.
Also nice to see Roman Catholic down at the bottom with the other nuts.

Very similar here as well!

I shudder to think that I am even 18% compatible as a Jehovah's Witness or 24% Catholic though...

I don't like them lumping "no god" "not sure" and "not important" together. You can't get at the shades of belief within these answers. I definitely fall under "not important" for all. So what kind of secular humanist does that make me?

Hey, turns out I am quiet similar too:

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 ranking of Buddhism sort of surprises me. But alase, Secular Humanism is my top choice though I do love my local UU chapter.

The machine correctly pegged me as a Unitarian, but I had to make choices that weren't really worded right for me. There is practically no difference between UU's and secular humanists except that UUs don't necessarily mind thinking of the mystery of our existence in somewhat religious terms (many UUs are atheists, though).
