  • New Humanist Quiz: What kind of humanist are you?
     OP - December 26, 2009, 06:05 PM

    A short and funny quiz:

    (Apparently I am a Hedonistic Humanist.)


    Also have a look at God Trumps cards (good laugh is guaranteed!):

    I am a Hedonistic Humanist. Sounds about right Cheesy

    I didn't understand all the choices though.

    Not living in the UK I felt a little out of the loop with some of the questions but it was a fun quiz.  I am a "Hounded Humanist", in the description, some of it was right on but a lot of it wasn't.  I love doing quizes like this.

    If you think your religion is worth killing for, please start with yourself.

    Hounded Humanist

    Oh, God – I mean, oh, Dawkins! – why does it all have to be so difficult? You try so hard, don’t you, to be a good person and to lead a blameless life? You keep a compost heap, cycle to the bottle bank, and the list of countries you won’t buy from is longer than the washing line for your baby’s towelling nappies. You would never cheat on your partner, drink and drive, accept bribes or fiddle your expenses. You try not to waste money, but give loads to charity. But you can’t help feeling guilty a lot of the time. It took quite an effort to throw off the shackles of your religious upbringing and even today you occasionally wonder if you’ve done the right thing. At other times, though, you remember with a shudder of revulsion the hypocrisy and constraints that you’ve escaped. You feel awkward when Christopher Hitchens argues that religion is primitive. Yet you’re filled with violent loathing when Jehovah’s Witnesses bang on your door or you encounter a line of orange Hare Krishnas chanting in the street. The commentator you most admire is Terry Eagleton, who, despite having no truck with religion itself, is a powerful advocate of religious values. You’re a reluctant atheist who’d have preferred some fundamental certainties but realised with sadness that there weren’t any. Lighten up – and wear your humanism with heart



    Word.  Cheesy

    What kind of humanist are you?
    Hedonistic Humanist
    You are one of life’s enjoyers, determined to get the most you can out of your brief spell on this glorious planet. What first attracted you to atheism was the prospect of liberation from the Ten Commandments, few of which are compatible with a life of pleasure. You play hard and work quite hard, have a strong sense of loyalty and a relaxed but consistent approach to your philosophy. You can’t see the point of abstract principles and probably wouldn’t lay down your life for a concept, though you might for a friend. Something of a champagne humanist, you admire George Bernard Shaw for his cheerful agnosticism and pursuit of sensual rewards, and your Hollywood hero is Marlon Brando, who was beautiful (for a while), irascible and aimed for goodness in his own tortured way. You adored the humanist London bus slogan (“There’s probably no God, now stop worrying and enjoy your life”) and are delighted that wild young comedians like Stewart Lee, Christina Martin and Ricky Gervais share your full-blooded rejection of religion. Sometimes you might be tempted to allow your own pleasures to take precedence over your ethics. But everyone is striving for that elusive balance between the good and the happy life. You’d probably better open another bottle and agree that for you there’s no contest.

    For sure, the description doesn't fit me 100%, but oh well...

    It is, but just some random quiz. At least it's fun. Kinda.

    Hounded Humanist, apparently.

    Although the rationalist association would probably consider me to be a heterodox religious person, notwithstanding my atheistic stance (in the truist sense of the word) realised through religion.

    I got that too, which isn’t right at all. I suspect that my reliance on ravnican amenities (necessary for me because of my various medical conditions) predisposed some of my answers away from living in mud huts, etc, which they wrongly interpreted as ‘hedonism’.

    There wasn't any answers to some questions that a religious person could select, so it wouldn't score my quiz.
