About This Quiz

Although technically called religions, many "New Age" organizations prefer to use terms like 'spiritual' or 'Mind, Body and Spirit.' While often a reaction in opposition to dominant Western Judeo-Christian values, some of these organizations, such as the Church of Satan, allow members to believe in whatever they want. Unlike other religions, that means that sure, you can follow Christianity as well as practice Satanism, no problem, without even being condemned to hell. Sure, it might sound counterintuitive. But why not try it? 

Let's face it — the world is always changing. So, perhaps it's time to identify with a New Age religion rather than a centuries-old one. For thousands of years, people were restricted to being Catholic, Muslim and the like. Now, you can proudly reveal yourself as a Scientologist or Raëlist. Isn't that more exciting? Many New Age religions heavily emphasize the self and holistic divinity, which means you're finally free to be whomever you want. So, maybe it's time to become a Wiccan or Satanist! You can always change your mind later.

Regardless which religion (if any) you practice, this quiz will reveal the true you through your New Age designation and tell you what to know about your spiritual place in the world.
