While I'm staunchly moderate.You stuffy old wind-sock, you. Free your mind! Or... something.
I'm sorry, Dave, but I really feel like I'm going to have to report you to E-Free headquarters...
I'm sure I got off on a bad foot when I said the Bible arose from God-inspired authors in a community setting. It didn't perfectly describe how I would describe myself, but it was the closest.When it got to tattoos,the Sabbath, and meat sacrificed to idols, any points I gained with a literal reading of Hosea were obliterated.
I'm a moderate....just barely. 55 when the lowest possible score for a moderate is 53.Really, I was all over the map on my answers. Showing that (a) I'm wildly inconsistent and/or (b) I hadn't thought through some of those issues. (Seriously, tattoos had never even occurred to me as a Biblical issue. I was just kinda winging it in my answer and can't even remember what I put.)
Hello. This post is likeable, and your blog is very interesting, congratulations :-). I will add in my blogroll =). If possible gives a last there on my blog, it is about the Wireless, I hope you enjoy. The address is http://wireless-brasil.blogspot.com. A hug.
It feels rather odd to be the most moderate score of the three. I did a qick pass-through again, and scored the same (I probably had more 3s this time, and fewer 2/4s, but they must have offset).59. If you answer every question with a 3, you'd be 60. I'm a tick towards conservatism away from a down-the-line #3 reading.So how did I fall so much more evenly moderate in this reading than two reasonable men who are politically more liberal than I? If nothing else, this confirms Ben's observation that left/right aren't such hot labels to be applied universally to politics and religion.
Yeah, I took it again and scored 47, still conservative.It would be interesting to take this quiz as a group and discuss differences.When I think of Left and Right, I don't think strictly of politics. I think of "liberal" and "conservative," which represent a spectrum in any discipline. I guess there's probably overlap between disciplines, where Republicans tend to be theological and economic conservatives simultaneously.I don't really think of myself as liberal, and my wife (who is actually liberal) definitely doesn't think of me that way. I tend more toward playing devil's advocate, so when I start hearing about market solutions I like to poke at some of the underlying assumptions, and when I hear leftist rhetoric, I tend to ask 'what about market solutions?' So, yes, I'm just into being a pain.
I don't think you're liberal, either. I do, though, think (though I may be wrong) that you're more liberal than I.So I managed to score 12 points more liberal than you. You averaged a response of 2.35, while I averaged 2.95. There's a small enough margin there that a preference for 2 over 3 on less than half the questions would pull your score down. I scored a lot of 3's because I didn't see the scale as a very effective one-to-five spectrum on many questions, but the 3 position generally had an appropriately balanced view.Which is to say, I think it's the quiz's fault - not mine. On their scale, an average of 3.25 is enough to classify as liberal while a 2.6 score is the cutoff for conservative.
