hi Dena,

it's easy to see we believe differently ... ... it is also easy to see that folks of different faiths can and should be supportive each other and that we can do this even when we disagree ... ... especially when we disagree ... ... heckfire, there ain't no sport in being gracious and considerate with the folks we agree with! ... that's no challenge!

i believe that the BeliefNet.com folks have devised their own set of statements of faith for each of the ranked beliefs, which they offer at their place ... along with the links to these statements that come with our rankings ... ... and the quiz questions are focused to articulate the distinctions ... ... maybe

... ... i have read their version of mahayana buddhism and i would quibble with their take on it, but the quiz still seems a surprisingly accurate evaluator ... quite clever ...

thanks again for your participation,
~ jim
