Looking at the outcomes posted so far, and knowing those who managed to take the quiz, it almost seems like the quiz was designed with the ulterior motivation to show that everyone is the same, regardless of whether they consider themselves to be socialists, capitalists, theocrats, right wing, or left.  It reminds me of those Conservative Tea Party protestors holding up signs reading, "Keep Your Hands Off My Social Security."

Well, more accurately, it says that atheists have similar views.

I can't seem to copy the image's address, so:

Economic axis: Social - 64.6% equality

Diplomatic axis: Peaceful - 70.7% world

Civil axis: Liberal - 69.2% liberty

Societal axis: Very progressive - 79.9% progress

Overall result: Social Liberalism

Let's get a Conservative Christian to take the quiz and see how similar it is. I'm willing to bet their results would be pretty much the polar opposite, putting more emphasis on the rights of big businesses to suck people dry, go to war with all the evil Muslim countries, force their religious beliefs on everyone else via the government, and to reverse social progress as much as possible.

Yeah we all seem to follow a pattern.  We need a real crazy theist.  Hey Ibn, you still here?

Too the quiz again, but with the viewpoint of the typical US christian.
Scored:
Markets 82.3
Nation   83.5
Authority 82.7
Tradition 84.5
Capitalist Fascism

This is what I think a typical Trump follower would score. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Oh well, I could take the test to arrive at any ideology I wanted too.  I only care what people here honestly score.

But we COULD discuss the possible outcomes and why they mean when arrived at.

I would also like to see a dyed-in-the-wool theist would score.  But I just wanted to see what my polar opposite would look like.

Everyone is the same ... same ape men.  But Pr126 might score different from the majority here.  I am not surprised at my results, but it is causing the biased to ignore it.

I appreciate your idea, but can any of us really be our polar opposite?  Surely there is some double-thinking involved.  I had enough trouble being honest, never mind thinking what "not me" would answer...

"I had enough trouble being honest" ... never a good sign.  Hope you get well soon.

I google translated it and see all the words, but I don't understand the meaning.  I'll accept some elucidation.
