Being as it's Sunday and all

You scored as Buddhism. Your beliefs most closely resemble those of Buddhism. Do more research on Buddhism and possibly consider becoming Buddhist, if you are not already.

In Buddhism, there are Four Noble Truths: (1) Life is suffering. (2) All suffering is caused by ignorance of the nature of reality and the craving, attachment, and grasping that result from such ignorance. (3) Suffering can be ended by overcoming ignorance and attachment. (4) The path to the suppression of suffering is the Noble Eightfold Path, which consists of right views, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right-mindedness, and right contemplation. These eight are usually divided into three categories that base the Buddhist faith: morality, wisdom, and samadhi, or concentration. In Buddhism, there is no hierarchy, nor caste system; the Buddha taught that one's spiritual worth is not based on birth.

Pretty damned accurate for an online quiz, don'tcha know? Actually, I agree more with Taoism than Buddhism, but they don't list that. And Paganism? Right up there. Hell, The Husband is an actual pagan priest without the "flapflap whakawhaka". Well, without too much of it.

I protest the Satanism thing, though, because that's just another form of Christianity (well, it IS -- without Christianity, Satanism would have never come into being, because Satanism is just a contrarian form intended to mock Christianity...which is a strange reason for a religion, but there it is.) "Do as thou wilt" ain't the story for me. "Do as thou wilt, an' it hurt none" is more my speed. Except for cockroaches...no amnesty for cockroaches.
