| You scored as Islam. Your beliefs are most similar to those of Islam. Do more research on Islam and possibly consider taking the shahadah and officially becoming a Muslim, if you aren't already.|
Despite the actions of some - who go against the teachings of Islam - Islam is a religion of peace; the word "islam" means "peace through submission to God." "Muslim" means "one who submits to God." Islam is the third of the three Abrahamic faiths, and it shares much with Judaism in Christianity; its differences are the acceptance of Muhammad as the last and final prophet, and the oneness of God - in other words, that Jesus, though he was a revered prophet, was not in fact God, and only one God exists. Apparently the Taliban could not read (though their name means "students"), because the Qur'an states that men and women are equal as believers, and that all believers should be educated and seek knowledge. Modesty in dress and behavior is required in Islam for both men and women to preserve the values of society and move the emphasis from superificial appearance to intelligence, knowledge, and God.
Which religion is the right one for you? (new version)

The problem with this quizz, in my view, is that it doesn't give you an option. No matter what you believe in, or not, you'll end up with a result. Kinda tricky to explain.
I'm non-religious, but, as most of you know, I have an interest in philosophical issues and an interest in religion, and have a certain view of the world, which could be explained in a religious way. That doesn't mean I'm religious. That way, I have to answer from that point of view, which is closest, but not entirely true. Sort of, answering from a political view, rather than a religious view, which of course gives a sligthly misguided result of the test.
As in.. as little as I believe in a God, I belive in Satan, but because I don't believe in God as a universal being/soul, I'll end up being a Satanist (and, of course, if one has a belief in certain religions, you have to believe in some kind of offspring of that as well. Can you believe in Satan, if you're not believing in a religion that believe Satan exists as well?).
The interesting thing, of course, is that I became Islam, but scores low on Judaism and Christianity, and those are essentially the same religion, with the same basic, original, "rules". Now, of course, what the Christian church is all about, is something that I see as entirely different from what Jesus preached, so it's tricky to say which is which. I might think strongly of the beliefs expressed by Jesus, but not agree with Christianity, as an example..
Oh.. and of course.. this was another quizz I found in the journal of ljuvefreya
