Is your belief in God consistent?

To find out, try taking this test. I haven’t tried it myself, since I’m not a theist. Any impressions about it? (I’m not expecting it to run very deep; but is it any fun?)


One thought on “Is your belief in God consistent?

    This test is short and really not very informative, but this was what it said:

    Do-It-Yourself Deity

    The Metaphysical Engineers Report

    Our modelling is designed to answer two questions about the conception of God which you offered.

    (1) Is the conception of God consistent with itself?
    (2) Is the conception of God consistent with the universe that we live in?

    The first question asks whether the conception makes sense. For example, a triangle with four sides is a conception which is not consistent with itself, since a triangle has three sides. A triangle with four sides is, in fact, a four-sided three-sided object, which is simply a contradiction in terms. In this sense, the conception is not consistent with itself.

    If a conception is consistent with itself, this does not necessarily mean that it refers to something which actually exists. For example, the idea of a six hundred foot monster that lives in liquid steel is not inconsistent. But such a creature does not exist in our world. The second question therefore asks whether your conception of God is consistent with the universe as we understand it.

    The metaphysical engineers should explain that any problems they report may reveal one of two things. Some problems may simply reflect their inability to resolve apparent problems. In this sense, the difficulties are a product of their lack of knowledge or understanding. Others may be deeper problems, so fundamental that no amount of increased understanding can resolve them. It is for you to decide which problems fall into which category.

    This is my report!!! Or grade I suppose.

    Plausibility Quotient

    Plausibility Quotient = 0.9

    The metaphysical engineers have determined that your conception of God has a plausibility quotient (PQ) of 0.9. A PQ of 1.0 means that as far as the metaphysical engineers can determine your conception of God is internally consistent and consistent with the universe that we live in. A PQ of 0.0 means that it is neither internally consistent nor consistent with our universe. More than likely, your PQ score will be somewhere between these two figures. But remember that this is your PQ score as determined by the metaphysical engineers. The editors of TPM have no control over their deliberations, so don’t blame us!
