    Was linked to an interesting beliefs quiz and was curious what the Tweak3rs results are. I'm predicting lots of atheists. ;)

    Some of those questions are very badly structured, but anyway:

    So "secular humanism" = atheism? I expected to see a little more Buddhism in there, but given how crappy some of the questions were I'm not surprised. :)

    I also didn't touch the importance.. I left them all at medium. Wonder if this had anything to do with the results? Shitty questions too..

    Nah, I suggest you click the links for further explanations.

    Atheists and agnostics are in the "nontheist cathegory"

    We get the secular humanism thing probably because we answered the moral questions at the end instead of putting "not applicable"

    Somewhat atheists don't beleive in humanity's improvement, as an example

    Interesting how JW is dead last. Curious how much this will change if I change the answer to one question.

    From what I've read about Mahayana Buddhism I'm pretty interested. It's not the worship of a god but just the reverence for someone who was spiritually enlightened. And I like the moral aspects. Interesting... :-k

    I describe myself as an atheist, borderlining on nihilism.

    Well, they do. Atheists don't believe in a higher power. It doesn't mean they don't believe in betterment of society. Answering non applicable to moral/social questions is more along the lines of nihilism.
