I was reading Samantha J's Post titled, "I know You Are An Atheist, But..." and I mentioned this game on a philosophy blog I frequently visit. I recommend playing it, it will ask you a series of questions to see if you can logically and consistently hold up your beliefs about what "God" is. Give it a try and post how you did, or how this game fairs. You might even want to try this out on a theist and see what happens. Thanks and good luck.

I got 2 bullets.
I agree with Graham. The question about evolution is poorly worded.

I see what you mean, but I think the point of that question is to say that there is lots of evidence for evolution, but we are certainly not definitive (but pretty damn close). So I tried it again on question/statement

13.) It is foolish to believe in God without certain, irrevocable proof that God exists.

and you are right, the evolution question even says the following:

6.) Evolutionary theory maybe false in some matters of detail, but it is essentially true.

basically it is a loaded question, because sure scientists will argue over the finite details of certain evidence, but they are also saying it is True, then later on they widen that uncertainty gap to God, and frankly that is a misrepresentation of the questions foundation. But you should definitely get a theist to take it, or find a subtle way to make them take it with out knowing it! anyways Pass the site along to everyone, I think this might help close some holes in our own ideas and beliefs as well.

And please respond back with your results. I need a sample size about a few certain questions we are getting hung up on.

I didn't do so well on this. I guess my bias in favor of evolution and against gods and religions was too strong. XD
I liked the do-it-yourself deity game.
