I scored 23%, reasonably average on the RWA test. I guess that is about right for being a moral optimist, philosophical skeptic, political moderate, a registered Independent and religiously agnostic.

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that we've been so credulous.” - Carl Sagan, The Fine Art of Baloney Detection

"You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep seated need to believe." - Carl Sagan

Re: Me and Ghandi meditating in a tree . . .
RAZD,

Here are my numbers:

Economic Left/Right: -4.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.05

I guess I am in Ghandi's camp as well.
