BeliefNet - What religion matches your belief

Rafi has a link to another survey which asks you a series of questions about your beliefs, and then lists how close you are to various religions.

What I found interesting is how close the survey matches the beliefs of Orthodox Judaism and Islam. I always thought that Islam as a belief system was much closer to (Orthodox) Judaism than Christianity or even Reformed Judaism.

I guess the survey results back me up on this - it puts my belief as 100% aligned with Orthodox Judaism, but 97% aligned with Islam, and 95% Reform Judaism.

No variations of Christianity came even close.
If you're at all interested, here are my full results - If you also try the quiz, feel free to post your results:

1. Orthodox Judaism (100%)
2. Islam (97%)
3. Reform Judaism (95%)
4. Sikhism (90%)
5. Baha'i Faith (84%)
6. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (65%)
7. Jainism (61%)
8. Liberal Quakers (60%)
9. Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (57%)
10. Jehovah's Witness (54%)
11. Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (53%)
12. Orthodox Quaker (52%)
13. Unitarian Universalism (48%)
14. Eastern Orthodox (48%)
15. Hinduism (48%)
16. Roman Catholic (48%)
17. Mahayana Buddhism (44%)
18. Seventh Day Adventist (44%)
19. Neo-Pagan (40%)
20. Scientology (35%)

I came out 100% Sikh, 97% reform and only 95% orthodox.

Ortho-dox means "correct thinking" so obviously I don't think right...
