Belief-O-Matic

I found this quite interesting quiz on another blog I frequent this morning and couldn't resist taking it. I have to say I am very surprised by the results. Not what I expected and not very accurate in my opinion. I will share here anyway:

Your Results
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.
How did the Belief-O-Matic do? Discuss your results on our
message boards.

I expected # 3 to be #1 as that is the group I most associate myself with. # 4 doesn't surprise me and it wouldn't have surprised me to have it even higher. #'s 1 & 2 were quite shocking....

If you take it and get results that surprise you, let me know. I really am unsure how #1 got there. I love my Mormon friends and neighbors and think they are great, but I am totally unfamiliar with their belief system.

Thanks to those that shared your results here. I posted this on a message board I frequent and it seems it pretty much came out as expected for most.

I knew some of my beliefs/views were a bit different from my denomination, just had no idea how different I guess!

And William, of course we'll still be friends! I appreciate your views and insights more than you know!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
