:thumbsup: Cool, further evidence for my theory that Jainism is the closest religion to Theravada. Sometimes I think Theravada has more in common with Jainism than it does with Mahayana.

I like your results. How did you get those results? I like how they're all Dharma Paths. I run the forum Dharma Paths but your results are better suited than mine to run Dharma Paths.
Did you see how many 0% I have?

Eh. I'm surprised I got the results I did, I'm not sure why they came out that way. I answered "Not applicable" in many instances and thought that most questions were about not particularly important topics. Like I said, I wonder what the test's methodology is.

Oh, okay, it could be the assigning the neutral value to some of the questions. I'll have to tweak some of my answers so I can 'score' as high as you did on the Dharmic traditions; so I can be a better Dharma Paths administrator :D

Probably. :)

I always seem to get something unexpected in the third place. This time it's Orthodox Quakerism. In the past I've had Mormonism and Neo-Paganism.

With all the practice you are getting taking this quiz I think that we can say with some certainty that very soon you will pass. I'm suprised it is taking you so long. I passed the first time and every time the quiz has come around again I pass on it again.

Well done! I doubt I shall ever pass it myself. I keep giving the same answers every time, only changing my mind about how much emphasis to place on each answer. :shrug:

Oh, it's very easy to pass such quizes. Just click that x button in your top right corner, or better yet, don't click that link to begin with.
