| You scored as Buddhism. Your beliefs most closely resemble those of Buddhism. Do more research on Buddhism and possibly consider becoming Buddhist, if you are not already.|
In Buddhism, there are Four Noble Truths: (1) Life is suffering. (2) All suffering is caused by ignorance of the nature of reality and the craving, attachment, and grasping that result from such ignorance. (3) Suffering can be ended by overcoming ignorance and attachment. (4) The path to the suppression of suffering is the Noble Eightfold Path, which consists of right views, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right-mindedness, and right contemplation. These eight are usually divided into three categories that base the Buddhist faith: morality, wisdom, and samadhi, or concentration. In Buddhism, there is no hierarchy, nor caste system; the Buddha taught that one's spiritual worth is not based on birth.
Which religion is the right one for you? (new version)

I actually have gone to a couple of Buddhist meetings before, and I really liked it! At least, to a certain extent- most definitely enough of an extent that I could really make it into a religion I really believed in whole-heartedly with a couple small modifications.
Shame that Unitarian Universalism wasn't one of the options though. I guess that's because UUism can really be mixed in with anything. I could easily be both a UU and a Buddhist at the same time.
In fact, at con (which is a UU youth gathering thing), I met a couple Buddhists.
Because one main point of UUism is really just to provide a place for each individual person to explore their own personal beliefs in their own way- no set creeds or anything like that. And it also puts a lot of focus on the here and now, life at the present, and trying to make the world a better place right now, instead of worrying about an afterlife.
I scored high on Paganism too, which is awesome. I definitely need to go do some research now. I'll practice music stuff later...at least this is kinda sort semi-productive, right?
