Netting Quizzical Beliefs

This weekend, a friend invited me to take the Belief-O-Matic quiz, which purports to be able to tell me what my religious practice ought to be. All this religious test could reveal to me, though, was what paths I would not take. It was not within the scope of the Belief-O-Matic’s design to consider what positive ideas and modes of meaning I might have.

The professed identity of “atheist” limits me in a similar way, I think… and that’s all that I can gain from subjecting myself to the Blinkered Vision of Belief-O-Matic.
