belief quiz experiment
So this quiz pops up in the local atheist group I belong to on Facebook, just for fun. And we all know that atheism is just no belief in god---it doesn't mean someone is rational and logical and scientific.....

I take the quiz and I post it to my regular facebook page for all of my friends, and the results just blew me away so far. I thought more of my friends before I did this than I did after Confused

My family took the test, our scores ranged from 2-8 (my husband is a believer--so that took most of his points).

a theater/secular homeschooling/farming/biker woman I know scored 15- but she also said that most were things that she "just wished they were true"-- meaning that she really didn't believe in them.

One of the mom's that I would think of as mostly secular and just 'normal' scored a 38!

And my old beau from high school (who thinks of himself as a master reiki healer) scored a 48! my jaw hit the floor.

Here's the quiz- I don't expect there to be high scores in this group--but posting it for my other friends (non atheist) was just surprising to me.
fun quiz for your facebook friends

Nice one. I managed to score 2, which, apart from being a skeptic, means I'm no fun. Tongue

RE: belief quiz experiment
Didn't understand a bunch of the questions.

Do I believe in near death experiences? Yes. People seem to have them. I don't think they mean anything too surprising though, just similar to dreams...

My body/soul can leave my body??? Er. No makey sense.

What the fuck is light as a feather, stiff as a board? No I won't google it Rolleyes

In undiscovered sea-monsters? Well... I guess? I mean, depends what you call a monster. It's not fully explored down there, there's probably some stuff down there, like coelocanths.

Sharks can form land based tornados??? Are these guys for real? WHAT. THE. FUCK. God Rolleyes

Spells and rituals can affect human/world events? Just try to fuck with e.g. the Hajj and see how far you get...

I do believe that there is life on other planets, it's just a hunch though - but the universe is too big for life to be unique IMO. Strictly speaking it's an open question though.

And *yes* I do believe people travel through time. Everyone does. Dodgy


I submit they should replace the test with *one* question and *one* choice of answer:
Are you stupid?
Yes

when I said 2-8, what I meant was.....I got 4, older daughter 7, younger daughter 2, husband 8.

My younger daughter (age 8), didn't click for the god & heaven stuff but said yes to leprechauns. hahaha.


many of the answers are in just the way you 'read' them.

Like many people have mentioned the one on sea monsters, and go with unidentified sea creatures--yes....are they "monsters"= no.

love potion-- does that mean tequila?

post it to your facebook page......I'm curious to see if your view of the non atheist-fairly normal people in your life freak you out like mine have.

RE: belief quiz experiment
I'd be interested in stats from this quiz applied to a large number of people. Give you a decent idea of how loopy the general population is...
