I did the belief-o-matic test. (results below the cut). I answered my best guess from a nonatheist point of view (Instead of putting 'don't know' or 'doesn't apply' to each one) which is a bit of a cheat I know. The top three results I got were Unitarian, Neo-pagan and Liberal quaker. This is interesting as liberal quaker and neo-pagan are the only two religions whose ceremonies I have attended of my own accord (as an adult, and not just to witness a friend's wedding, ordination etc.). I would probably like Unitarian practice too. I think the novellist Mrs Gaskell was a Unitarian (I find her a bit smug though).

Next 'New Age': I quite dislike that philosophy, because it strikes me that the practitioners are fortunate people, who ascribe their good fortune to good spirituality, and are consequently quite self satisfied. I may be misjudging a whole movement from some unfortunate acquaintances.

Next 'Reform Judaism': never had much to do with it - probably like Sikhism it is mainly aimed at a particular ethnic group.

Next 'New Thought' - never heard of it. The brief description sounds OK. If anyone knows more I would be interested.
