I love those old books/pamphlets. And Modest Proposal is one of my favorites.

Here's my top ten

1.  Neo-Pagan (100%) 
2.  Unitarian Universalism (92%) 
3.  New Age (83%) 
4.  Liberal Quakers (78%) 
5.  Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (73%) 
6.  Mahayana Buddhism (72%) 
7.  Secular Humanism (72%) 
8.  Theravada Buddhism (70%) 
9.  Reform Judaism (64%) 
10.  Sikhism (55%) 
 
Oh and I have a friend who teaches Creative Writing. Every so often he'll give the class A Modest Proposal to read to give them an example of argumentative writing. And always, always he will have at least two students come up to him with a worried look on their face asking "Is he serious?"

I'd not bet much because I'd lose that bet. The site is actually really good as are most of the quizes, here's one for you in particular Junkyard

I went through and answered as close to "Catholic AM radio host" as i could and this was the top ten that resulted:

1.  Eastern Orthodox (100%) 
2.  Roman Catholic (100%) 
3.  Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (96%) 
4.  Seventh Day Adventist (76%) 
5.  Jehovah's Witness (70%) 
6.  Orthodox Quaker (68%) 
7.  Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (67%) 
8.  Orthodox Judaism (60%) 
9.  Islam (55%) 
10.  Hinduism (53%) 

The reason both you and i got Neo-Pagan is because Neo-Paganism is so utterly protean (or wishy washy if you like) If you think the earth should be revered and have a belief in multiple deities you can still fit under its banner.

I tend to ignore that one, it's easy to get 100% or a designation with such a liberal definition.

Yeah, I have been forced to admit that part of Hinduism's appeal is that it's unspecific in all the right places.

No I'm talking about Neo-Paganism here, but see because you are Hindu you will also answer yes to questions that a Neo-Pagan would answer yes to.

Plus Neo-Paganism borrows quite a bit from Eastern religious thought.

That's kind of what I was saying. Neo- Paganism and Hinduism both have that comfortable vaugness.

Speaking of vagueness did you do the "What Sort of Hindu are you?" quiz?

I think it means you're new to it all and therefore are sticking with a lot of the texts and the like. Do you have a temple near you?

On a whim I answered it and apparently I'm Nehru.
