After seeing the link from whedonite
, I took a quiz whose aim was to determine what religion my responses best fit. The quiz graphed the results of my responses along a dual axis graph
--the vertical axis measuring the spectrum of Faith vs. Reason responses and the horizontal tracks Scientific vs. Spiritual responses. Littered about the two axes, are regions where the creators of the quiz have determined particular religions and philosophies to fall--Atheism, Judaism/Christianity, Taoism, and Buddhism.
While I don't mind that they push forth the concept that, as Screeching Weasel put it
, "Science and Religion are not mutually exclusive," I don't really see both axes serving as proper dichotomies. Indeed, I don't really find the two axes to be unrelated--why wouldn't someone who scored high on reason not also score high on the scientific responses (I fell squarely in the 'Spiritual' quadrant)?
The most egregious error, however, is their locating of Scientology purely along the Scientific side of the horizontal axis.
Sorry, like I've said before, Scientology has about as much to do with true science as Intelligent Design.
