    Not at all. There is some truth in ALL religions. I thought you knew that.

    Apparently, 39% of JW doctrine is truthful. I thought it would be less than that.

    The fact still remains, a lie mixed with truth delivers a lie.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    I wish neo-pagan rated higher, I like the sound of that.

    EDIT: I found this (from Wiki) interesting particularly the bolded part;

    Theravada (Buddhism) promotes the concept of Vibhajjavada (Pali), literally "Teaching of Analysis." This doctrine says that insight must come from the aspirant's experience, critical investigation, and reasoning instead of by blind faith; however, the scriptures of the Theravadin tradition also emphasize heeding the advice of the wise, considering such advice and evaluation of one's own experiences to be the two tests by which practices should be judged.

    The Theravadin goal is liberation (or freedom) from suffering, according to the Four Noble Truths. This is attained in the achievement of Nibbana, or Unbinding which also ends the repeated cycle of birth, old age, sickness and death. Theravada teaches that Nibbana is most quickly attained as an enlightened noble disciple of Buddha: an Arahant (lit. "worthy one", "winner of Nibbana").

    In the Theravadin view, the Nibbana attained by Arahants is the same as that attained by the Buddha himself.[6] The difference was that the Buddha was superior to Arahants because the Buddha had discovered the path all by himself, and was able to teach others. Arahants, on the other hand, experience Nibbana due in part to the Buddha's teachings. Theravadins revere the Buddha as a single supremely gifted person but do recognize the existence of other such Buddhas in the distant past and future. Maitreya (Pali: Metteyya), for example, is mentioned very briefly in the Pali Canon as a Buddha who will come in the distant future.

    In Theravadin belief, some people who practice with earnestness and zeal can achieve Enlightenment (Nibbana) within a single lifetime, as did many of the first few generations of Buddha's disciples. For others, the process may take multiple lifetimes, with the individual reaching higher and higher states of awareness.
    "Social networking" is an oxymoron.

    There's no "total unbeliever" category, I know some people that would fit in that.
