The Emerson Avenger

The Emerson Avenger is a "memory hole" free blog where censorship is scorned. This blog will "guard the right to know" about any injustices and abuses that corrupt Unitarian Universalism. Posters may speak and argue freely, according to conscience, about any injustices and abuses, or indeed hypocrisy, that they may know about so that the Avenger, in the form of justice and redress, may come surely and swiftly. . . "Slowly, slowly the Avenger comes, but comes surely." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

In 1992 I underwent a profound revelatory experience of God which revealed that the total solar eclipse "Eye of God" is a "Sign in the Heavens" that symbolizes God's divine omniscience. You may read about what Rev. Ray Drennan of the Unitarian Church of Montreal contemptuously dismissed as my "psychotic experience" here: - This revelatory religious experience inspired me to propose an inter-religious celebration of Creation that would take place whenever a total solar eclipse took place over our planet. You may read about what Rev. Ray Drennan and other leading members of the Unitarian Church of Montreal falsely and maliciously labeled as a "cult" here: - I am now an excommunicated Unitarian whose "alternative spiritual practice" includes publicly exposing and denouncing Unitarian*Universalist injustices, abuses, and hypocrisy. The Emerson Avenger blog will serve that purpose for me and hopefully others will share their concerns here. Dee Miller's term DIM Thinking is used frequently and appropriately on this blog.

The Belief-O-Matic™ aka Beliefomatic Quiz Of Beliefnet As Completed By The Emerson Avenger

U*U blogger Logan Geen aka The New Unitarian*Universalist did a blog post title What Religion Are You? about the Beliefnet Belief-O-Matic™ online quiz that suggests which religions your beliefs are most aligned with based on your answers to questions about your understanding of "the concept of God, the afterlife, human nature, etc." He posted his Belief-O-Matic™ quiz results and Lone Star State U*U blogger Peripatos followed suit on his patter-pensée blog. The Emerson Avenger decided to take the Belief-O-Matic™ quiz yet again just to see where he stood these days as far as its somewhat questionable results are. It is only as a result of redoing the Belief-O-Matic™ quiz and checking his results, along with those of U*U bloggers, that The Emerson Avenger noticed that the small but historically and culturally important religion known as Zoroastrianism is not amongst those religions that are listed in the Belief-O-Matic™ quiz. The Emerson Avenger is less than impressed with Beliefnet's apparent slight to Zoroastrians, especially in light of the fact that tiny fringe religions like Unitarian*Universalism and Scientology are amongst those that are included in its Belief-O-Matic™ quiz. . . Still it's nice to know that he could pass for a Sikh in a pinch and that he is quite solidly 70% Buddhist.

Herewith are The Emerson Avenger's Belief-O-Matic™ quiz results. I would seem that his strong small 'u', if not capital 'U' Unitarian monotheism causes the following somewhat unusual (for him) results:

Liberal Quakers (100%)
Mainline to Liberal Christian Protestants (98%)
Reform Judaism (97%)
Unitarian Universalism (93%)
Neo-Pagan (88%)
Sikhism (87%)
Baha'i Faith (84%)
Orthodox Quaker (84%)
New Age (83%)
Mahayana Buddhism (71%)
Orthodox Judaism (71%)
Theravada Buddhism (70%)
Islam (68%)
Secular Humanism (61%)
Mainline to Conservative Christian/Protestant (59%)
Jainism (58%)
Scientology (58%)
Seventh Day Adventist (55%)
New Thought (52%)
Taoism (52%)
Eastern Orthodox (51%)
Roman Catholic (51%)
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) (46%)
Christian Science (Church of Christ, Scientist) (45%)
Hinduism (43%)
Nontheist (38%)
Jehovah's Witness (25%)
