I was looking around on a website today called Beliefnet.  I found this nifty little quiz called the "Belief-O-Matic."  The name caught my eye because it is funny, but I do think a few of the questions in it have substance.  I've decided I'd like to learn a little more about some of these religions, if for nothing else, knowledge.  My DH said he just couldn't see me being Muslim or a Scientologist.  I told him I couldn't see myself being a Protestant Christian.  Religion has become a new hobby for me.  I love learning about religion. I started on my own religious journey but then I discovered a new passion for learning.  I have a Islam tutor I work with through email so I can learn about Islam.  I am learning about Judaism from my bff on Facebook.  I am learning about paganism from books, blogs, FB, Twitter, and of course, DH.  I wonder if it is possible to be completely unbiased while studying religion.  I try not to be biased but I admit that some bias does come in.  I think it is nearly impossible to be completely unbiased.  Anyway, I thought I'd post the results to this quiz, not because I'm going to base my religion on it, but because it's food for thought.  I hope everyone is having a nice weekend.
