The answers are up for this year’s Ideological Turing Test, and graphs and charts of how well you did will be coming all week. This time around, we had a lot more participants, so I’ve appended each writer’s bio (rot13’d to avoid spoilers) after the answer(s) ze wrote. There are more repeat players on the Christian side than the non-Christian side, because I got a lot more potential responses from atheists.
So go ahead and look back at the responses and see where you guessed correctly and who managed to trick you!
Questions For Christians:
- What sin (if any) lies at the root of all other sin? And why?
- Why, in a world of many splintered sects, should *your* tradition be trusted?
- What is an element of your tradition that is underappreciated by your fellow believers?
Questions For Non-Christians:
- Name a book that shaped your moral sensibilities (and talk a little about how) Fiction is fair game
- What role does ritual have in your life? What role would you like it to have?
- What’s a question you’re currently uncertain about, where you’d like to “flip to the back of the book” and find the answer now?
