I too, was raised Catholic and also consider myself without any religion. I found the high score for Theravada Buddhism (as opposed to other forms of Buddhism) was interesting as I've recently become interested in that form of Buddhism.

This was interesting to a degree. I consider myself a Liberal Protestant, I went to a Liberal Quaker college, and have many friends who are either Reform Jews or Agnostic/Atheistic Jews. (An Agnostic/Atheistic Jew is one who does not necessarily believe that there is a God, but still adheres to and observers Jewish tradition and culture.)

I'm not surprised since I was raised and confirmed a Lutheran, but converted to Catholicism when I got married.
This was fun, thanks for sharing.

How true! Nearest contender, Mahayana Buddhism(67%), is way behind and that unequivocally establishes my way of life.

I suppose that the fact that the leading entries were so close in percentage rating means that it couldn't find an absolute label for my beliefs.
At least I now know that I'm not a jehovah's witness.
