Question Is there a Political Compass variant that deals with Religion?
I assume all of you are aware of the Political Compass tests online that tell you where you are politically (libertarian liberal, libertarian conservative, centrist, moderate, statist liberal, statist conservative, or what have you). And your results are shown on a grid:

Is there something similar for Religions? Abrahamic Jewish, Abrahamic Christian, Abrahamic Muslim, in one corner and something else in the other. Or something along those lines. Or maybe one that deals with Atheism? Agnosticism, Gnosticism, Atheism, etc.

Not that I know of, but sounds like a good idea for an app that would be somewhat easy to build.

Secular humanism as well. The test looks promising. I'll try to approach it from Norse mythology to see what comes up.

I see one of the other results is 'Atheism and Agnosticism' and wonder how I could have answered differently.

Same here, I'm actually kind of surprised. I would like to think I am a secular humanist, but didn't think my answers would match. I would rate the quiz as pretty good considering it's length. That being said I don't think this is what he was looking for.

Am I right in thinking you was looking for something that would tell you your political leanings based on your belief system? If so, good luck. I am quite sure they are all shit.

I noticed that you can determine the importance of your answer for each question. Perhaps marking the answers that adress the existence of a deity as "highly important" will result in atheism. I didn't change anything at the importance settings.
